Abstract Telecommuting innovate telecom organizations towards reduction in cost of operations. I examined correlational relationship between employees support for creativity and innovation as exemplified by the use of telecommuting in telecom environment, organizational commitment, and organizational citizenship behaviour. Moreover, this study was explained in context of diffusion of innovation theory. To examine the hypothesis in the study, I used the data from 324 randomly sampled telecom telecommuters to conduct a multiple regression analysis between the variables in the study. The results from the multiple linear regression were significant in predicting employee organizational citizenship behaviour. The findings indicated that Support for creativity and innovation, and organizational commitment were significant contributors to employees’ organizational citizenship behaviour. The implications for change are also discussed.
