Drawing upon theories of conservation of resources, social information processing and organizational creativity, this study examines the potential effects of environmentally-specific servant leadership (ESSL) on green employee work outcomes (i.e., green innovative work behavior and organizational citizenship behavior for the environment) as well as the possible mediating role of climate for green creativity in the ESSL-green work outcomes relationships. Based on two-wave data collected from 237 employees working in Pakistani hotels, the findings showed that ESSL has a positive association with green work outcomes. Moreover, the results showed that the climate for green creativity mediates the positive association of ESSL with green innovative work behavior and organizational citizenship behavior for the environment. This study is one of the first studies which extends the servant leadership-innovative work behavior literature in hospitality to green innovative behaviors. Discussion, implications and limitations are discussed.

Abstract

Drawing upon theories of conservation of resources, social information processing and organizational creativity, this study examines the potential effects of environmentally-specific servant leadership (ESSL) on green employee work outcomes (i.e., green innovative work behavior and organizational citizenship behavior for the environment) as well as the possible mediating role of climate for green creativity in the ESSL-green work outcomes relationships. Based on two-wave data collected from 237 employees working in Pakistani hotels, the findings showed that ESSL has a positive association with green work outcomes. Moreover, the results showed that the climate for green creativity mediates the positive association of ESSL with green innovative work behavior and organizational citizenship behavior for the environment. This study is one of the first studies which extends the servant leadership-innovative work behavior literature in hospitality to green innovative behaviors. Discussion, implications and limitations are discussed.
