Abstract and Keywords

As we developed the concept of job embeddedness, we were determined to create a construct that explained as comprehensively as possible the reasons why people stay in organizations. Later, scholars theorized and found that on-the-job embeddedness also increased the probability of organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs) and better job performance. More recently, Kiazad and colleagues (2015) have argued that conservation of resources theory offers a parsimonious explanation for the growing nomological network around job embeddedness. Building on this work, we explore promising directions that may contribute to the theoretical enrichment of the job embeddedness–OCB relationship including the different motives of OCBs as mediators, the relationship between job embeddedness and different types of OCBs, a closer look at the causality between job embeddedness and OCBs, theoretical integration with the social network perspective, and factors interacting with job embeddedness in influencing OCBs.

Keywords: organizational citizenship behavior, measurement, modeling, review, OCB
