- This study focused on individual creativity in workplace. The aim was to identify the role of breach in psychological contract, the mediating variables (scouting behavior and perceived organizational support), and a moderating variable (employee’s belief in just world) on creativity. We surveyed 157 employees and their coworkers and supervisors to measure different variables thereby reducing common source bias. Analysis with multiple regression showed that the effect of psychological contract breach on creativity (supervisor-rated) was completely mediated by scouting behavior (coworker-rated) and perceived organizational support. Belief in just world had a moderating effect on the relationship between psychological contract breach and creativity, thereby supporting the betrayal hypothesis.
