Research Methodology: The (JS), (OCB), and (POS) questionnaires were administered to a sample of (n=200) participants; i.e., all employees of Narin Tile Company through stratified random sampling. Pearson Correlations and Path Analysis were used to test the hypothesized relationships.
Findings: Results indicate that job satisfaction (as mediator) had no significant effect on the relationship between Perceived organizational support and organizational citizenship behavior; however, perceived organizational support had a strong meaningful effect on both organizational citizenship behavior and job satisfaction variables. Moreover, there was a strong significant positive correlation between the variables payment, fringe benefits as well as social interaction and the variable perceived organizational support.  The relationship between perceived organizational support and job satisfaction was (r=.19).  Furthermore, findings demonstrate strong significant positive correlations between ‘altruism and conscience’ and ‘job satisfaction’ as well as between ‘fringe benefits, nature of work and social interactions’ and ‘Organizational Citizenship Behavior’.
