Ren-Tao Miao, Heung-Gil Kim


The purpose of this study was to examine the relations between three domains of OCBs and team effectiveness, and to test for the moderating effects of gender on the relationship between OCBs and team effectiveness. A cross-sectional survey of 218 employees from 26 Chinese manufacturing companies showed that self, group, and organization domain OCBs were directly related to job satisfaction, group and organization domain OCBs were directly related to team performance. The results indicated that gender moderated the relationship between organization domain OCBs and job satisfaction, and this relationship was stronger for males than females. Implications for practice and directions for future research are discussed.
