Human Resource Development Climate as a Predictor of Citizenship Behaviour and Voluntary Turnover Intentions in the Banking Sector

Akinyemi Benjamin


This study aims to examine the relationships among human resource development climate (HRDC), organisational citizenship behaviour (OCB) and voluntary turnover intentions (VTI) in the banking sector. Questionnaires were distributed to working adults in Nigerian commercial banks to guage the employees’ individual perception, and thus data obtained was treated as an individual data source. About 600 questionnaires were distributed and a total of 303 were receieved representing a response rate of 50.5%. Of these, 233 were usable for data analysis as others were incomplete. The results indicate that the HRDC has a significant relationship with OCB and VTI. However, OCB shows no significant relationship with VTI. The study findings and their implications for organisations in general and Nigerian banks in particular are discussed.
