  • Dera Ismail Khan


Literature shows that fair treatment of employees by organization management may lead to improved performance and development of interpersonal attributes like hope, resilience, optimism, etc. This fair treatment may also boost the level of organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) among individuals. A friendly environment can be produced in this way; where co-workers help each other beyond their job description.

This study is carried out to find the mediation effect of OCB in relationship between components of organizational justice (i.e. procedural, distributive and interactional justice) and psychological capital (PsyCap). A stratified sample of 400school teachers in the territory of District Dera Ismail Khan, was chosen for this study. Data was collected through questionnaire by personally visiting in schools.

The study in question, resulted that all the variables follow normal distribution. Subsequent analysis showed that organizational management can develop interpersonal attributes (like, resilience, hope, self-efficacy, and optimism) through incorporating organizational justice at workplace. Characteristics of OCB also developed PsyCap attributes in individuals. OCB fully mediated the relationship of PJ &DJ with PsyCap but partially mediated the relationship between IJ &PsyCap.
