Such altruism is neither prescribed nor required; yet it contributes to the smooth functioning of the organization. Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) is defined as individual behavior that is discretionary, not directly or explicitly recognized by the formal reward system and that in the aggregate promotes the effective functioning of the organization. Job satisfaction is one of the affecting factors that influence it. Job satisfaction is defined as the degree to how people like their jobs and different aspects of their jobs.
Method: In this desc riptive and correlative study, all employees of Red Crescent society’s Textile Industries of Islamic Republic of Iran were studied and finally 123 persons were selected through simple random sampling method. Data were gathered using two questionnaires to measure Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) and also the 20- items (short version) Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) to determine the levels of job satisfaction of employees. Data were analysis by SPSS and LISREL software with correlation (p=0.05).
Findings: The results demonstrated that a significant and positive correlation was observed between Organizational Citizenship Behavior and Job Satisfaction (0.665); also, correlation between all dimensions of Job Satisfaction including internal Job Satisfaction (0.684), external Job Satisfaction (0.582), and Organizational Citizenship Behavior.
