Moral Crediting and Workplace Behavior Dr. Chu-Hsiang Chang, Dr. Russell Johnson, Dr. John Schaubroeck, Catherine Ott-Holland
Previous work by Monin and Miller (2001) and others suggests that individuals “credit” themselves for engaging in moral behaviors. Conversely, engaging in selfish or unethical behaviors may cause individuals to notice a deficit in their moral credentials, leading to subsequent behaviors that have positive moral connotations. This “moral crediting” process may explain why altruistic behaviors often immediately follow self-centered behaviors, and vice versa. We are seeking to extend this framework to extra-role behaviors in the workplace. In our initial study, we established that examples of organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs) have the properties of crediting behaviors (moral, altruistic, etc.) while examples of counterproductive work behaviors (CWBs) have the properties of credit spending behaviors (unethical, selfish, etc.) We are currently conducting a lab study that explores whether recalling past OCBs or CWBs affects the likelihood of engaging in a subsequent altruistic behavior.
