Abstract
In this article, 327 employees were chosen as the sample and tested using hierarchical regression, in order to examine the impact of the SSG orientated subordinate relationship to their job performance, as well as to analyze what difference proactive personality will make. Conclusions can be drawn from the results as follows: first, among the three dimensions of superior-subordinate guanxi, deference to supervisor and emotional attachment has a significant correlation with job performance, whereas personal-life inclusion proved to be of no significant correlation; there are strong correlation between overall superior-subordinate guanxi variables and job performance; second, the proactive personality moderates the connection between subordinate relationship and job performance to some extent.
