THE IMPACT OF ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE ON COUNTERPRODUCTIVE BEHAVIORS

 

 

Abstract

This study investigates the impact of organizational climate on counterproductive behaviors. In organizational behavior studies, organizational climate is suggested as an important determinant or precursor of counterproductive behaviors. However, in the literature, there are limited studies on the relationship between counterproductive behaviors and organizational climate. In this respect, significant findings have been collected as a result of a research conducted on 204 employees of two enterprises in the field of metal and solar energy. Based on the findings, significant and negative relationships have been observed between counterproductive behaviors and dimensions of organizational climate such as reward, warmth, support/commitment, organizational structure and organizational standards. Moreover, warmth relationship environment, support/commitment and organizational standards dimensions are found out to have effect on counterproductive behaviors.

 

 

Introduction

 

As today’s businesses continue to struggle to survive or acquire sustainable competitive advantage, it is important for organizations to better understand the factors that influence employees and important employee-oriented work outcomes. The growing significance placed on understanding employees and their behavior within the organization has produced a great deal of interest in investigating employee perceptions of climate within the organization (Riggle, 2007: 1). Work environment or climate perception of employees has significant consequences for both individuals and organizational. Climate or atmosphere in workplace has impact on employee’s motivation, behavior, attitudes and potentials, which, in turn is predicted to influence organizational productivity (Adenike,  2011: 155). In  other words, the  climate or the organizational climate is considered very important in the life of organizations due to its clear effects and relations to the various regulatory activities. It affects employees’ satisfaction and performance and, thus, the success of the organization and its ability to continue (Al-Saudi, 2012:

 

 

 

15). For these reasons, organizational climate has been a topic of considerable research over the last thirty years, both theoretically and empirically (Dawson et al., 2009: 89). Organizational climate is defined as the set of characteristics that describe an organization and that distinguish the organization from other organizations and influence the behavior of people in the organization (Farooqui, 2012: 296). Organizational climate attempts to identify the environment that affects the behavior of the employees. Due to the organizational climate importance on employee’s attitudes and behaviors, researches increasing attention in organizational behavior literature (Holloway, 2012: 13).

 

In literature, researchers have found links between organizational climate and employee attitudes and behaviors. Researchers suggest that organizational climate related with positive behaviors like innovative behavior, organizational citizenship behavior and negative organizational behaviors like counterproductive behaviors. (Bellou and Andronikidis, 2009: 295; Scheuer, 2010: 10; Farooqui, 2012: 298; Fagbohungbe et al., 2012: 213; Al-Saudi, 2012: 15; (Wolf et al., 2012: 666). Because, people tend to accept and internalize the climate of the organization in which they work, and the perception of climate has an important impact on their behavior (Vardi, 2001: 327). If employees perceive that the organization stands behind them and performs employee oriented politics, they are more likely to be persistent, innovative and helpful when faced with unexpected problems. Conversely, employees who perceive their work environments as being non supportive or unwelcoming they are more likely to exhibit negative or counterproductive behaviors (Wolf et al., 2012: 666).

 

Counterproductive behaviors are directly harmful to the organization or to other individuals in the organization and can range from relatively minor to very serious. Counterproductive behaviors are likely to be affected  by both individual  and  organizational factors (Biron, 2010: 877). Organizational climate is one of the organizational factors that affect counterproductive behaviors. There are a few researches that show the relationship between organizational factors and counterproductive behaviors. For instance, most studies focus on the relationship of counterproductive behaviors with some of the variables such as job satisfaction, job performance, organizational justice, leader-member exchange, turnover intention, well-being etc. However, there are limited researches existing literature investigating the impact of perceived organizational climate on counterproductive behaviors. Due to limited studies on the effects of organizational climate on the counterproductive behaviors, this study attempts to add to the area of organizational behavior research. In this context, the purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of the organizational climate upon the employees’ counterproductive behaviors.
