Comment on the Research Progress of the Impact of Organizational Citizenship Pressure
Previous studies have generally focused on the OCB, in which employees vol-untarily engage, and while because OCB is often informally encouraged or re-warded, employees may experience the pressure to become “good Staff”, that is, Organizational Citizen Pressure. This article systematically explores the formation of the concept of Organizational Citizen Pressure, the possible posi-tive and negative impacts it may have, and related research theory. The paper also looks into the future research direction of Organizational Citizen Pressure. Due to the double-edged sword effect of Organizational Citizen Pressure, a full understanding of it will be of great guidance meaning to organizational man-agement theory and practice.
