Emotions, Behavior, and the Mediating Role of Climate

  •  Taghrid S. Suifan    


This study examined the impact of emotional intelligence on organizational citizenship behavior with organizational climate as the mediator, in the context of Jordanian pharmaceutical companies. The study addresses the gap in the research that examines the mediating effect organizational climate has on organizational citizenship behavior and emotional intelligence. Quantifiable data were collected using a survey questionnaire, and statistical analyses were performed, including correlation and regression analysis. This study indicates that organizational climate is of great importance in Jordanian pharmaceutical companies because it tended to promote efficiency and effectiveness among employees. Organizational climate mediates the relationship between emotional intelligence and organizational citizenship behavior; if emotionally intelligent employees are provided with a positive organizational climate, only then can they contribute positively towards organizational citizenship behavior. The study is helpful in understanding how organizational citizenship behavior has become a factor underlying job satisfaction. Therefore, Jordanian pharmaceutical companies should focus on developing a culture in which employees can achieve goals and feel satisfied.
