PSYCHOLOGICAL MECHANISM BETWEEN IMPRESSION MANAGEMENT AND COMPULSORY CITIZENSHIP BEHAVIOR OF EMPLOYEES
This paper mainly explores the psychological mechanism between impression management and compulsory citizenship behavior (CCB) of employees. Specifically, a questionnaire survey was carried out on 298 employees, and the survey results were used to evaluate the effects of impression management on the CCB of these employees. In addition, the authors also probed into the role of political skill on the relationship between impression management and the CCB. The results show that impression management and political skill have negative impacts on the CCB; the political skill mediates the relationship between impression management and the CCB, i.e. the stronger the political skill, the poorer the effects of impression management. The research results shed new light on CCB reduction in workplaces.
