The Influence of Personality Traits and Organisational Culture on Proactive Behaviour among Aviation Security Personnel at The Kotoka International Airport, Accra, Ghana

ABSTRACT
Threats to security at airports have become a serious global menace affecting various economies around the world. Ghana will be no exception if measures are not taken to avert such threats. This research assesses proactive behaviour among security personnel in the aviation industry in Ghana. The study also sought to assess the role personality traits and organisational culture play in predicting proactive behaviour among the study participants.  Participants for this study were security personnel working under Ghana Airport Company Limited at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra. A cross-sectional survey was carried out. The study used a convenience sample of 120 participants, majority of whom were above age 30.  Participants completed a questionnaire on the Big Five Inventory, Proactive Behaviour Scale and Organisational Culture Scale. A hierarchical multiple regression was used to analyse the data. Results show that personality trait and organisational culture
predict proactive behaviour. The results further reveal that three domains of personality trait (extraversion, neuroticism and openness) predict proactive behaviour but agreeableness and conscientiousness do not. Also, it was observed from the results that all the domains of organisational culture except teamwork predicted proactive behaviour. Based on the research findings, theoretical and practical implications are discussed as well as limitations and suggestions for future research.
