Abstract:Organizational citizenship behavior and counterproductive behavior are increasingly accepted as components of job performance. Recently, many researchers have speculated that citizenship and counterproductive behavior are actually opposite poles of the same behavioral factor. The present research first examines the available evidence for and against this proposition. Then, in Study 1, meta-analysis is used to estimate the relationship between the two constructs (or facets thereof), moderators of the relationship, and relationships with antecedents. There is, however, a sound rationale for examining work behavior over time, rather than only across people (as Study 1 did). Study 2 therefore uses an experience sampling design to observe variation in work behavior in situ. Proportions of within-person variance, extent of similarity and coordination in cyclicity, and magnitude of bivariate relationships (both before and after accounting for statistical artifacts) are investigated. Results from both Study 1 and Study 2 are consistent in indicating that citizenship and counterproductivity are distinct factors, not opposite poles of the same factor. Caveats to this conclusion, suggestions for future research, and a preliminary theoretical explanation for citizenship and counterproductivity being distinct factors are discussed.
