Studying the Relationship between Humor and Organizational Citizenship Behavior
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between humor and Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB). The study took place at Isfahan’s banks in Iran. A random sample of 276 employees was selected. This research was conducted using two separate questionnaires. Humor was assessed using the sense of humor questionnaire developed by Sadat Khoshouei et al. (2009). This Questionnaire uses 25 items to measure the five subscales. For OCB, questionnaire suggested by Bell and Menguc (2002) has been used. Structural equation modeling was conducted to test the hypotheses. The finding showed that the “sense of humor in stressful conditions”, “sense of humor in social relations” and “enjoyment of humor” (with a signi?cant coefficient at 0.56, 0.27 and 0.39) had a significant effect on OCB and humor in?uences on OCB with a signi?cant path coefficient at 0.68. The result of this study showed that humor can be considered as a predictor of OCB.
