Through the data of 611 valid questionnaires from enterprises with different sizes and natures, the models of guanxi structure between colleagues are obtained ,which have Chinese cultural characteristics.Through regression analysis, we find that the guanxi between colleagues has a positive influence on individual job performance, but the guanxi does a different direction of the impact in sub-domains of job performance from the sub-domains of coworker guanxi, and the influences are also different.
