Abstract
A predictive relationship is proposed between stronger communitarian normative ideological

values and beliefs regarding the political and economic social contract, and greater

amounts of organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). The theoretical foundation

supporting this relationship is based in management literature on organizational

cooperation, and political theory literature on individualist and communitarian ideological

orientation, which derives from the social contract theories of Hobbes, Locke, and

Rousseau. Survey data from 315 organizational employees supported the study's proposal

that stronger communitarian ideological orientation had statistically significant and positive

direct and interaction effects predicting greater OCB performance.
