Abstract

The study examined the relationship between negative workplace factors (measured as work stress and workplace bullying) and critical organisational climate for effectiveness, and the moderator effects of gender in the relationship. Data were collected from 278 civil service employees in government establishments in Nigeria. Results of hierarchical regression analysis revealed that work stress (β = -.20, P < .001) and gender (β = -.49, p < .001) significantly predicted critical organisational climate for effectiveness but workplace bullying was non-significant. Gender significantly moderated the relationship between workplace bullying and critical organisational climate for effectiveness such that the negative relationship between workplace bullying and critical organisational climate for effectiveness was non-significant for men (r = -.05, n.s.) but highly significant for women (r = -.54, p < .001). Contrary to hypothesis, gender did not significantly moderate the relationship between work stress and organisational climate for effectiveness. The practical implications of findings for intervention activities in the civil service are discussed.
