In recent years, the importance of organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) has been emphasized by many authors. It’s expected that an employee who is highly motivated, committed to the institution, and satisfied with his/her job, he/she gets strong organizational citizenship behavior. The strong organizational citizenship behavior, then, increases employee’s performance, and decreases intention to release. This paper aims to explain the relationship between the OCB and organizational commitment of women employees. Data was collected from employees in textile companies, in Kahramanmaras, Turkey. A total of 210 questionnaires were distributed and 159 usable questionnaires were returned, a response
rate of 75%. Initially, OCB and organizational commitment were defined. Consequently, correlation and regression analyses were performed according to the methodology. Analyses provide support for the effect of organizational commitment on OCB.
