Abstract
Despite the growing number of studies on the motivations of organizational citizenship behavior(OCB) in work context, there are few studies which take Chinese culture into account such as guanxi. Based on literature review and theoretical analysis, authors discuss the motivations of OCB’s altruism from a perspective of guanxi in Chinese organizations and argue OCB can be triggered by altruistic or self-interested motivations that are produced by Confucianism and guanxi culture. By this way, it is necessary to provide reference to expand the future researches on OCB and improve the practice of management in Chinese context.
