The study examines the role of organizational influences, work environment and personal characteristics in the perceptions of organizational politics of Thai managers. Data was collected from 445 Human Resource (HR) Managers working in Thailand. The relationship of antecedents (organizational influences, work influences, and personal characteristics) with the perceptions of organizational politics was analyzed through correlation and stepwise regression. Developmental opportunity was found to be the strongest predictor of perceptions of organizational politics, followed by leader member exchange and tenure and they were all negatively related to the perceptions of organizational politics.
