Over the past couple of decades, perceived organizational politics (POP) has remained an important subject of inquiry in the field of organizational behavior and is commonly viewed as a source of detrimental consequences for organizational members.Politics, the perception of which varies from person to person, is an inevitable component of an organization's social fabric.
