Findings from multiple regression analysis (stepwise) showed that only three dimensions of OCB which is altruism (ß = 0.261), courtesy (ß =- 0.182) and civic virtual (ß = 0.167) accounted for 8.7% of variation in criterion (learning organization) and altruism is the best predictor among OCB dimension. Research also presented a model designed to reflect the relationship between the dimensions of OCB and learning organization. These studies also imply that the level of OCB in increasing learning organization.
