The aim of this article is to examine the relationship between OCB and turnover intentions while controlling for the effects of person-organisation (PO) fit. The study was based on a convenient sample of 200 employees from four different companies, and the data were analysed by means of correlation, hierarchical regression, and usefulness analysis. The results suggest that OCB directed at the organisation (OCBO) and PO fit were significantly related to turnover intentions. Contrary to expectations, OCB directed at individuals (OCBI) was not significantly related to turnover intentions. The paper contributes to research by clarifying the nature of the relationship between OCB and turnover intentions, and provides theoretical and practical implications that both researchers and practitioners can implement.
