1Foluso Philip Adekanmbi
This paper examines the relationships among organizational factors (organizational culture, commitment, and support) and employeebehaviors (organizational citizenship behavior and workplace deviant behavior) within Nigeria’s public sector. The current researchers drew the study’s sample from 6 public service ministries within Oyo and Lagos States of Nigeria. Also, this paper assumes a quantitative research approach. The current researchers randomly circulated the questionnaires, and out of 300 questionnaires, 287 were useful for analysis. Hence, the analysis was completed using the SPSS version 26. The current findingsdenote that encouraging positive organizational culture, commitment, and support can be related to citizenship behaviors and deviant behaviors. The present results further indicate that demographics (age, work experience, gender, religion, marital status, and educational qualification) show statistical correlations with the level of organizational citizenship behavior and workplace deviant behavior.Therefore, the government should encourage constructive organizational culture, adequate organizational commitment, and support that promotes organizational citizenship behaviors and discourage workplace deviant behaviors.
