Predictors of Thriving Within Organizational Setting: A Study of Public Sector Higher Education Institutes in Quetta
Employees who work for contemporary organizations operate in a complex mix of social, cultural and behavioural atmosphere. It has been recognized that the best and most productive employees are those who feel vital and are open to learning. The study attempted to find out the relationship between perceived organizational support, psychological contract fulfilment and workplace incivility with thriving at work. The study also tried to find out whether psychological contract fulfilment mediates the relationship between perceived organizational support and thriving. The sample was drawn from the teaching staff of the three public sector universities of Quetta city while using convenience sampling. The sample size for this study was 245. A questionnaire was developed from existing instruments of the variables and was distributed among the teaching staff of these universities. The data was analysed using SPSS and Hayes Process macro. The results showed that the relationship of perceived organizational support was positive with thriving and psychological contract fulfilment. Psychological contract fulfilment was further directly associated with thriving according to the findings. The findings indicated that the effect of workplace incivility was negative on thriving. The findings also showed that psychological contract fulfilment did not mediate the relationship between perceived organizational support and thriving. The study presents its practical implications. The limitations and future research directions are also provided shortly.
