Abstract

This current study investigates how employees' organizational citizenship behaviour (OCB) mediates the relationships among perceived human resource management practices (i.e., retention-oriented compensation and formalized training) on the employees' intention to leave their jobs. The universalistic proposition framework provides the basis for this study. Using a sample of 152 respondents from a Sino-Japanese joint venture located in China, we found that retention-oriented compensation and formalized training are positively related to the engagement of OCB, while they are negatively associated with intention to leave the organization. In addition, we also discovered that OCB mediates the effects of retention-oriented compensation and formalized training on the said intention to leave. We likewise discuss their implications in this study.
