The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of compassion experienced by defectors on deep acting in organization and secondly to demonstrate the effect of deep acting through compassion on job performance. Third, the purpose of this study is to examine the effects of deep acting on organizational citizenship behavior. Fourth, we examine the mediating effect of deep acting in the relationship between compassion and job performance. Finally, we try to demonstrate the mediating effect of deep acting in the relationship between compassion and organizational citizenship behavior. As a result of this study, it was proved that compassion experienced by defectors has a positive effect on deep acting and that deep acting has a positive effect on job performance and organizational citizenship behavior. In addition, all hypotheses were supported by the findings of research on the mediating effect of deep acting in the relationship between compassion and job performance, and compassion and organizational citizenship behavior. Thus, this study implies that the defectors who need compassion in the organization improve their job performance and increase organizational citizenship behavior through deep acting.
