Abstract:

Employee psychological capital, a positive psychological state-like construct characterized by self-efficacy, hope, optimism and resilience, has been linked to desirable employee attitudes and behaviors (Luthans, et al. 2010), higher job performance (Luthans et al., 2007), and psychological well-being (Avey et al., 2010). However, studies have not yet looked at psychological capital’s (PsyCap) impact on peer relationships. In this study, we investigate psychological capital’s impact on an individual’s position within two different types of social networks. Based on signaling theory, we proposed that certain behaviors send signals about one’s level of psychological capital. Given that earlier research shows a relationship between psychological capital and citizenship behavior (OCB), we hypothesized that OCB sends signals about psychological capital and therefore would mediate the relationship between psychological capital and network centrality. Our findings show that psychological capital has a positive relationship with network centrality in the social support network but no relationship with network centrality in the advice network. We also found that OCB mediated the relationship between psychological capital and network centrality in the social support and advice networks. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
