Perceive organizational support has many benefits for employees. The purpose of the present study was to determine if any of the Big Five personality traits moderate the relationship between perceived organizational support and work effort. One hundred and forty-four employees were surveyed on Prolific to identify their levels of perceived organizational support, work effort, and each of the Big Five traits. Perceived organizational support significantly predicted work effort. None of the Big Five traits significantly moderated the relationship in this primarily remote-working sample. These findings suggest that employees of all personality profiles respond similarly to support from their organizations.
