  • Abstract ABSTRACT
    Most of the organizational politics derive either from achieving the organizational goal by organizational members, or from the purpose of maximizing self-interests. Therefore, Perceptions of Organizational Politics (POPs) might influence the perception of need satisfaction or outcome and affect job involvement and job performance. The purpose of the study is to understand the relationship among POPs, job involvement and job performance. Through empirical survey, there are several outcomes as follows:
    1. Females have more political perceptions of organizational policy and practice than males do.
    2. Members under 35 years old have more perceptions of supervisors’ political behavior and have more perceptions of coworkers’ and cliques’ political behavior than members over 35 years old do.
    3. Single members’ POPs is higher than married members’.
    4. Non-managers’ POPs and perceptions of coworkers’ and cliques’ political behavior are higher than managers.
    5. The higher the managers’ level, the higher the job involvement.
    6. The dimensions of POPs are negatively relative to job involvement.
    7. By controlling sex, marriage, age, education, service seniority, and position to examine the relationship between POPs and job performance.
    7.1 Females, single, under 35 years old, college and above, seniority and managers have higher perceptions of supervisors’ political behavior and lower job performance, task performance, and contextual performance.
