The present study discussed how organizational citizenship behavior, which is considered to improve the effectiveness of an organization, is affected by cultural views of self and work values. We surveyed university students who had working experience (N=115, mean age 21.7 years, SD=4.0). Independence of cultural views of self was positively correlated with two subscales of organizational citizenship behavior. However, Interdependence of cultural views of self was not significantly correlated with organizational citizenship behavior. Using hierarchical multiple regression analyses, Independence of cultural views of self and Development of Self of work values positively influenced part of organizational citizenship behavior, while Sense of Achievement of work values negatively did. In addition, Development of Self and Contribution to Society of work values indicated significant moderator effects. Therefore it was suggested that cultural views of self and work values were antecedence factors of organizational citizenship behavior.
