This study examined the influence of employee psychological ownership (PO) and creative self-efficacy (CSE) on employees' creative performance (ECP) and whether CSE moderates the impact of PO on ECP. The study design was cross-sectional and quantitative, while data were collected from 148 public and private organizations. The participants comprised 54.7% women and 45.3% men, with a mean age of 39.75 (SD = 8.45). The statistical tests applied to the data were regression analysis (complemented with the PROCESS tool) and executed SPSS version 27. The hypotheses tested were confirmed as predicted. PO and CSE independently positively affected ECP, and the interaction of CSE and PO on ECP was significant. Simple slope analysis revealed that the positive influence of PO on ECP was more potent when CSE was high than when it was low.
