The impact of perceptions of organizational politics on workplace friendship.


Wen-Wei Yen *, Shih-Chin Chen and Shih-I Yen

While the correlations between perceptions of organizational politics (POPs) and workplace friendship are still unclear according to the literature, this study elaborated the POPs-workplace friendship correlations and investigated the effect of organizational level on POPs and workplace friendship with organizational level as an interfering variable. Results of the survey conducted on 225 valid samples support the hypothesis of this study, that is the stronger the POPs, the better the workplace friendship; though the assumed moderating effect of organizational level is insignificant. These results contribute to the related literature, management practice and further studies.
