Abstract

Organisational citizenship behaviour is voluntary behaviour on the part of employee which does not bring any reward to them. An employee who feels like citizen of organisation may do something extra for organisation and coworkers which is not described in job description. This study examined interpersonal justice and equity sensitivity as predictors of organisational citizenship behaviour among state civil servants in Anambra State. Participants in the study were 279 employees of Anambra State Civil Service and they were selected through Purposive Sampling Technique. They responded to, Organisational Justice Scale, Equity Sensitivity Instrument and Organisational Citizenship Behaviour Scale. Two hypotheses were posited and tested using Regression Analysis Statistics. The results showed that interpersonal justice (β = .51; t = 17.38; p < .001) and equity sensitivity (β = .59; t = 20.32; p < .001) predicted organisational citizenship behaviour. Findings were discussed in line with theoretical framework. Implications of the results were given and suggestions made on how organisations will enhance their employees’ citizenship behaviour. It was recommended that managers of Nigerian public sector should develop and implements policies that will promote justice and equity perception among its employees so as to promote good citizenship behaviour among its’ employees.
