The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between psychological capital and organizational identity on prosocial behaviors and organizational cynicism. We studied 227 employees from a broad cross section of organizations in İstanbul. Thus we intend to build this investigation on a different sample from a sample of American culture. It was found that each of the variables of employees’s psychological capital and organizational identity is positively related to prosocial behaviors, negatively related to organizational cynicism. There was no statistical difference between basic variables in terms of demographic factors. Also it was found that organizational identity didn’t moderate the relationship between neither psychological capital and prosocial behaviors nor psychological capital and organizational cynicism. Finally, the implications of this study were compared to other investigation built in America and limitations of the study were discussed.
