Abstract:In this study the relationships between different identity orientations and different types of citizenship performance behaviour (Coleman and Borman, 2001) are investigated using an extended model of self representation (Brewer and Gardner, 1996). A total of 101 employees from three knowledge intensive companies participated in this study. Results suggest that differences in identity orientation can be seen as predictors of citizenship performance behaviours. Partial support was found for the moderating effect of organizational identity orientation. Theoretical and practical implications of this study are discussed, as well as suggestions for further research.
