Additionally, both feminine and masculine role beliefs were associated with OCBs.Research limitations/implicationsFuture researchers may benefit from examining a sample outside an educational institution.Social implicationsAs our society continues to change, gender role beliefs will become less restricted to our biological genders and it will become essential for organizations to understand how they relate to work behavior (e.g. OCBs).
