Focus

empirically examines the relationship between emotional wellbeing and work productivity. The study is interesting as it addresses a relevant area of interest amongst academicians as well as practitioners today. Organizations have moved beyond the binds of job satisfaction as a key to improved performance, and today the focus is on positive employee experiences and employee wellbeing as a key to enhanced commitment and performance. Few studies have been able to establish a direct relationship between emotional wellbeing and productivity, which the current study addresses. The study also gauges the demographic differences in emotional wellbeing in terms of gender, age, etc. The findings of the study give an insight into the characteristics of emotional wellbeing and its relationship with employee productivity.

The second paper, "Effect of Organizational Support, Leader-Member Exchange, Team-Member Exchange and the Effect of Mediation by Affective and Team Commitments on the Organizational Citizenship Behavior of Nurses" by Prasanjit Dasgupta, empirically examines the role of various employee attitudes on OCB amongst nurses. The current study is significant as it focuses on nurses especially in the Indian context. Studies on the nursing population are on the rise in the Indian context given the realization that the environment in which they work is completely different and hence the need to focus on this particular aspect. Moreover, factors such as OCB are expected behavior to be displayed by nurses, thereby creating a need to investigate the nature of OCB in nurses and other employees of the hospital. The paper presents an indepth literature review, and using The Social Exchange Theory explains the rationale between relationships. The findings of the study emphasize the role of organizational support and team commitment in fostering OCB in nurses.

The third paper, "The Impact of Perceived Corporate Social Responsibility on Job Satisfaction and Organizational Citizenship Behavior in Sri Lanka Telecom" by P Priyanka, N Thevanes and A Anton Arulrajah, investigates the role of CSR in job satisfaction and OCB. The paper is significant in the context of the telecom sector in Sri Lanka. The paper investigates the mediating role of job satisfaction in the relationship between CSR and OCB. Studies that investigate the role of CSR in various employee attitudes and behavior mostly consider its impact on external stakeholders. The current study addresses this gap by measuring its impact on OCB in the telecom sector. In today's context, CSR activities in many countries have been made mandatory by law, and further research therefore should focus on the implications of CSR as arbitrary. The arbitrary nature of CSR activities can have either similar or dissimilar implications on employee attitudes and behavior.

A Study on Job-Specific Emotional Wellbeing and Work Productivity Among Indian Employees
Divya Jain

Competition in this Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) work environment drives young talent to stay motivated and focus on continuous learning. The fight to sustain and succeed in this volatile market requires any person to be unwavering mentally and physically in order to bring effectiveness and value addition. This study evaluates the association of emotional wellbeing and work productivity among the Indian employees. A sample of 160 employees was congregated with a response rate of 100%. Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Cronbach's alpha was applied to test the normality and reliability of the data, respectively. The results revealed a significantly weak connection between emotional wellbeing and productivity. The level of emotional wellbeing was found to be disparate across gender and educational qualification and age had a weak association with emotional wellbeing.

Effect of Organizational Support, Leader-Member Exchange, Team-Member Exchange and the Effect of Mediation by Affective and Team Commitments on the Organizational Citizenship Behavior of Nurses
Prasanjit Dasgupta

Voluntary citizenship behavior is influenced to a great extent on the perception of support from social exchanges. A number of studies have demonstrated it for different categories of employees. Much of our current knowledge about Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) is based on studies conducted in the West and the Far East. In many cultural perspectives, India is identical with neither the West nor the Far East. Nurses are responsible for the care of patients and need to display citizenship behavior for their wellbeing. This exploratory study seeks to find out how perception of support from organization, leaders and teams affects OCB of nurses and the mediation effect of affective and team commitments on it. The study was conducted in five private hospitals of Kolkata in which 504 nurses participated. Significant findings of this study include stronger mediation effect of Team Commitment (TC) on OCB of nurses than that of Affective Commitment (AC) and stronger effect of Perceived Organizational Support (POS) in generation of OCB than that of Leader-Member Exchange (LMX). Another significant finding of the study is greater influence of Team Member Exchange (TMX) than LMX on OCB of nurses.

The Impact of Perceived Corporate Social Responsibility on Job Satisfaction and Organizational Citizenship Behavior in Sri Lanka Telecom
P Priyanka, N Thevanes and A Anton Arulrajah

This paper aims to examine the relationship among Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), job satisfaction and Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) and the mediating effects of job satisfaction on the relationship between CSR and OCB. In order to achieve the study objectives, primary data was collected from 150 employees of selected regional divisions of Sri Lanka Telecom. A simple mediation analysis was used to test the research model. The findings of the study revealed that a positive and significant relationship exists among the study variables. Moreover, the empirical findings of the study indicate that job satisfaction of employee mediates the relationship between CSR and OCB. The empirical findings support the theoretical argument of the study. The findings of the study will be useful and important in understanding empirical knowledge regarding the relationship among CSR, job satisfaction and OCB.
