Description
The relationship between organization commitment and organization citizenship behavior has been frequently investigated in the literature. What has received less attention is the role that workplace spirituality plays in this relationship. This study examines the extent to which workplace spirituality moderates the relationship between affective commitment, continuance commitment and normative commitment on one hand, and organization citizenship behavior on the other hand in the context of Uganda. Data was collected from a systematic sample of staff at Uganda Christian University using psychometrically valid measures from published studies. Composite measures of the study variables were calculated, followed by standardization of the moderating variable. This analysis was followed by regression analysis to examine the extent to which workplace spirituality moderates the commitment- citizenship relationship. It has been established that affective commitment does not predict altruism, but normative and continuance commitment do. Further, a sense of community moderates the relationship between affective commitment and altruism.
