Abstract


The purpose of this research is to investigate the impact of factors like personality factors, job factors, organizational factors, job burnout and work engagement on employee workplace deviant behavior. Moreover, this study also contributes to knowledge in the emerging literature on the subject matter of human resource management, organizational behavior and organizational development. The survey was conducted among three sectors of Pakistan, electronic, textile and sports where 170 questionnaires were distributed to the employees of these sectors. Structural Equation Modeling was used to examine the relationship among variables and to test the model, whereas AHP test was used to find the critical factors associated with this study. The personality factors, organizational factors, job burnout and work engagement are essential factors for the firm because these three factors have extremely vital effect on employee workplace deviant behavior. Personality factors like conscientiousness, trait anger and agreeableness were found to have a significant effect on job burnout. Similarly, personality factors like high level of conscientiousness and low level of trait anger enhance the level of work engagement which ultimately lowers the employee workplace deviant behavior. Organizational factors have significant impact on work engagement while job burnout has significant effect on employee work place deviant behavior. Work engagement impacts employee workplace deviant behavior. This study was limited to only three sectors of Pakistan and further sectors can be considered in order to validate this research in future. The time and resources were also remained the big issues during the research. The findings of this study allow the managers to understand the factors underlying employee workplace deviant behaviors and in this way, managers or organizations.
