The purpose of this study is to provide a better understanding of the relationship between coworkers' organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs) and employees' work attitudes. In addition, we test if the two-situational factors – perceptions of organizational politics and task interdependence – moderate the relationship between coworkers' OCBs and focal employees' work attitudes. Using a sample of 411 employees, we found that coworkers' OCBs beneficial to organizations (OCBO) was positively related to focal employees' job satisfaction but negatively related to their turnover intention. The relationship between coworkers' OCBO and job satisfaction was stronger when perceptions of organizational politics were low. On the other hand, the relationship between coworkers' OCBs beneficial to other individuals and turnover intention was stronger when task interdependence was high. Implications of these results and future research directions are discussed.
