POSITIVE ORGANIZATIONAL POTENTIAL, ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT AND ORGANIZATIONAL CITIZENSHIP BEHAVIOUR: A FRENCH/ POLISH COMPARISON
KeywordsPOS (Positive Organizational Scholarship), POP (Positive Organizational Potential), OC (Organizational Commitment), OCB (Organizational Citizenship Behaviour)
AbstractThe analyses presented in this paper are based on the first step of the research project concerning the links between Positive Organizational Potential (POP), Organizational Commitment (OC) and Organizational Citizenship Behaviour (OCB). The survey was conducted in two samples and covered French and Polish firms. The results support a model adopted in the analysis and thus the importance of influence of POP, organizational culture and climate on employees’ behaviours and Organizational Development. The results also point out cultural differences between the French and Polish firms: one dimension of OC, the willingness to continue membership in the organization and the general compliance dimension of OCB are lower in the French sample. The present paper also presents the next, planned step of the research.
