Prosocial Behaviour and Job Performance; Does The Need For Control And The Need For Achievement Make a Difference?

This study examined the relationship between job performance and prosocial behaviour at work using several variables that to date have received little or no attention in the literature. It focuses on employees’ need for control, need for achievement, and the more commonly studied variable of organisational commitment as direct predictors of prosocial behavior and ultimately as indirect antecedents of job performance.
