Title: PERCEIVED ORGANIZATIONAL POLITICS AND JOB SATISFACTION: THE ROLE OF PERSONALITY AS MODERATOR
Keywords: perceived organizational politics, job satisfaction, personality, extraversion, openness
Background: This study aims to examine the predictive effect of perceived organizational politics on employees’ job satisfaction, and the role of personality (extraversion, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness) in moderating the relationship.
Methods: Data were collected using self-report questionnaires from 210 employees working in private organizations in Malaysia. The hypothesized relationships were tested using hierarchical regression analyses.
Results: Consistent with the prediction, results of the study indicated that perceived organizational politics was negatively related to job satisfaction (R2 = 0.09). From the four personality traits, only extraversion and openness were found to moderate the relationship between perceived organizational politics and job satisfaction.
Conclusion: The findings of this research extent the current knowledge on the importance of personality traits in relation to perceived organizational politics and job satisfaction among employees.
