Abstract

The present study aimed at exploring the relationship between innovative work behavior and job involvement among the employees of telecommunication sector. A sample of 300 employees, 200 men and 100 women (Mage = 29.99, SD = 6.40) were recruited from the telecom sector of Pakistan. Innovative work behavior and job involvement were measured using the Innovative Work Behavior Scale (Butt, 2006) and the Job Involvement Scale (Lodhal & Kejner, 1965) respectively. Correlation analysis showed innovative work behavior and job involvement to bepositively related to each other. Independent sample t-test showed significant mean differences in gender on innovative work behavior and non-significant mean differences in job involvement. Non-significant mean differences were also found in education on innovative work behavior and job involvement. One way ANOVA showed significant mean differences in income groups on innovative work behavior and job involvement. Linear regression analysis showed that job experience had significant impact on innovative work behavior but non-significant impact on job involvement. Limitations and implications of the study are also discussed.
