Abstract:

Innovative organizational behaviors and empowering organizational environments can function reciprocally toward ensuring organizational performance and sustainability in long term. This study aimed at analyzing the relationships between Psychological Empowerment (PE), Perceived Organizational Support (POS), and Creative Performance (CP). Through a literature review, we examined causal relationships among these variables. The subjects of the study were agricultural personnel (n = 80) of Karaj city, Iran. Data were analyzed through descriptive statistics, confirmatory factor analysis, and the structural equation modeling. Results of this study, showed that agricultural personnel had moderate level of Creative Performance (CP) (Mean = 3.35). Moreover, results of correlation analysis and structural equation modeling procedure showed that Psychological Empowerment (PE) significantly affected Creative Performance (CP) more than that of Perceived Organizational Support (POS) (β = 0.29, p<0.01). Overall, the present study recommended that the agricultural organization environment should promote agricultural personnelís creative behaviors through improving their perceptions of psychological empowerment. Finally, the research provided managerial implications.
