Abstract

This study was carried out with the view to assessing the impact of organizational capital on employees’ counterproductive work behaviour among some public healthcare organizations in Nigeria using Bayelsa state as a reference point. The study used a sample of two hundred and forty-three (243) employees of the selected organizations and data obtained were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistical tools. Specifically, the regression results indicated an insignificant but positive influence of organization capital on employees’ counterproductive work behaviour in public healthcare organizations.  On the basis of the findings, it was recommended among others that organizations should regularly assess and monitor employee behaviour including counterproductive work behaviour via appropriate performance management systems and employee feedback mechanisms; this would allow organizations to identify early warning signs and take proactive measures to address any emerging issues.
