Countering workplace bullying: The role of perceived organisational support
Djurkovic, N., McCormack, D. J & Casimir, G. (2008). Countering workplace bullying: The role of perceived organisational support. Human Resource Management Journal,18(4), 405-422.
This study examined whether perceived organisational support (POS) moderates the relationship between workplace bullying and victims’ intention to leave. Based on data from 335 schoolteachers, a hierarchical regression analysis using the product term revealed that POS moderates the effects of bullying on intention to leave. Furthermore, a series of univariate regression analyses revealed that the effects of bullying on intention to leave were significant with lower levels of POS but were non-significant with higher levels of POS. Several implications for future research and policy are drawn from the findings.
