present study proposed and tested a model of organizational deviance which
incorporated both characteristics of the work environment and the individual. Specifically, job design and personality were
examined as determinants of organizational deviance. The model incorporated both direct and joint
effects of the study variables. Data
from 662 individuals were analyzed using moderated regression. Results showed
personality traits of conscientiousness and neuroticism and job characteristic
of identity predicted organizational deviance.
Conscientiousness moderated the impact of variety and neuroticism
moderated the impact of identity on organizational deviance. The findings have implications for job
design, selection and recruitment of organizational members.
