The Good Soldier

A major topic in this chapter is organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). OCB refers to going beyond job requirements and giving extra to the organization. The text mentions the five dimensions most often associated with OCB: altruism, conscientiousness, courtesy, sportsmanship, and civic virtue. This exercise will help you distinguish among these dimensions as well as illustrating the breadth of OCB. On a blank sheet of paper (no need to submit for grading):

Part 1: Write your current or most recent job title then list the top 5 task requirements of this job. (Keep in mind, this refers to thinks you were required to do; they should be listed in the job description.)
Part 2: OCB activities. Next, think of 5 behaviors that you do or did in this job that were not task requirements, but for the benefit of the organization (e.g., voluntarily joining committees). Then classify each behavior as either: altruism, conscientiousness, courtesy, sportsmanship, or civic virtue.
Part 3: Negative job behaviors. The text discusses OCB actions that are positive influences on the organization. However, employees can also engage in other behaviors, not listed in their job description, which are detrimental to the organization (e.g., saying disparaging comments about others). In this section, think of at least three examples of negative job behaviors that you have observed in your current or former job.

Write at least a two-page reflection paper addressing the following questions:

When you think about how your job performance was evaluated, were these positive and negative job behaviors mentioned above included in your evaluation? If so, why do you think they were not?
How would you revise your performance evaluation to include these factors?
How much weight should be given to these factors in determining pay raises and promotions?

Written assignments must be original writing, include citations and adhere to APA style guidelines. This assignment uses SafeAssign to check originality. The overall SafeAssign matching score on the Originality Report must be 20% or less. Assignments that result in the SafeAssign score greater than 20% receive no credit.
