Abstract

The study investigated the relationship between occupational stress, organisational citizenship behaviour, psychological capital and emotional intelligence, using the correlational cross-sectional (survey) research design, stratified, purposive and convenience sampling techniques to select a sample of 1532 male and female graduate employees from the various sectors of the Nigerian economy. A structured and validated questionnaire was used to collect data from the participants. The data collected was analysed using Pearson’s correlation coefficient. The results showed that there is a weak but positive relationship between occupational stress and organisational citizenship behaviour; a significant positive relationship between occupational stress and psychological capital; a weak but positive relationship between occupational stress and emotional intelligence; a significant positive relationship between organisational citizenship behaviour and psychological capital; a significant positive relationship between organisational citizenship behaviour and emotional intelligence; and a significant positive relationship between psychological capital and emotional intelligence. The hypothesized relationship between the four variables under consideration was confirmed. The researcher thereafter, recommended that action research should be conducted in this area of study.
