Psychol Res Behav Manag. 2018; 11:545-555.PR

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Leaders play vital role in organization to accomplish organizational goals and establish healthy working environment. This study addresses the effect of authentic leadership on employees' communal relationship and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). In addition, this research also examines how procedural justice augments the effect of authentic leadership on both aforementioned employees' behavioral outcomes.

MATERIALS AND METHODS

Using a cross-sectional design, data were collected from 425 employees working in banking sector of Pakistan. It was hypothesized that authentic leadership would positively predict employees' communal relationship and OCB. Furthermore, we also assumed that procedural justice will strengthen the relationship between authentic leadership, both behavioral outcomes, that is, employees' communal relationship and OCB.

RESULTS

Analyses reveal that authentic leadership positively predicts employees' communal relationship and OCB. In addition, procedural justice was found to positively moderate the effect of authentic leadership on employees' communal relationship and OCB.

CONCLUSION

To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the relationships among authentic leadership, procedural justice, communal relationship, and OCBs in the South Asian context. This is the first study to report the moderating role of procedural justice in the relationship between authentic leadership and communal relationship and OCB. The practical implications of study findings and direction for future research are discussed.
