The Role of employe gender, and gendered job-type in organizational citizenship behavior attributions

Gedik, Merve
Organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and its dimensions-altruism, courtesy, conscientiousness, civic virtue and sportsmanship-have been a very significant and rapid growth research area for recent decades. With the realization of OCB importance in work places, several studies are conducted to identify the elements which can affect the perception or expectation of organizational citizenship behavior from employees. This study intends to identify the relationship of OCB with employee gender and gendered job-type. In order to test the hypotheses, data were collected from the Business Administration students from the universities in Ankara through paper-pen based questionnaires. The sample used in this study is composed of 141 students who were third or fourth year bachelor students. The results of this study indicated that the relationship between dimensions of organizational citizenship behavior and employee gender is insignificant. However, relationship between gendered job-type and altruism dimension of OCB was significant. The other dimensions of OCB were not significantly associated with gendered job-type. This research is concluded with the discussion of the results.

Quality in gender equality policies (QUING)
Acar, Feride Pınar(2011-3-31)
The European Union is a multilayered, multicultural democracy based on mutual respect for its diverse peoples and cultures, introducing goals that value diversity and inclusion while counteracting hierarchies, inequalities and exclusion. At the level of its Member States, uneven struggles often diverge from this and tend to exclude and polarize, whether the focus is on race, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. Gender issues are constitutive of current European polarizations in terms of ethnicity, sexuality...
