Etik Liderlik, Politik Beceri ve Güç Mesafesi Yöneliminin Çalışan Sesliliğine Etkisi

Bu çalışmanın amacı çalışanın etik liderlik algısının, politik beceri düzeyinin ve güç mesafesi yöneliminin seslilik davranışına etkisini incelemektedir. Söz konusu değişkenler arasındaki ilişkilerden hareketle araştırma modeli oluşturulmuş ve hipotezler geliştirilmiştir. Çalışmanın alan araştırması kısmında Erzurum ilinde biri özel sektörden, biri kamudan olmak üzere iki işletmeden toplam 228 çalışandan anket tekniğiyle veri toplanmıştır. Toplanan veriler IBM SPSS 25 programı ile analiz edilmiş ve hipotezler test edilmiştir. Yapılan analizler sonucu çalışanın etik liderlik algısının ve politik beceri düzeyinin seslilik davranışı sergilemesine katkısının olduğu, buna karşılık güç mesafesi yöneliminin seslilik davranışına doğrudan etkisinin bulunmadığı görülmüştür. Ayrıca kamu sektöründe çalışanların güç mesafesi yöneliminin özel sektör çalışanlarından daha yüksek olduğu bulunmuştur.

The Impact of Ethical Leadership, Political Skill and Power Distance Orientation on Employee Voice

The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of employee’s ethical leadership perception, political skill and power distance orientation on their voice behaviour. Based on the relationships among the aforementioned variables, a research model was developed and hypotheses were formulated. In the survey part of the study data were collected in Erzurum from a total of 228 employees from two firms, one public and one private company. Data were analyzed with IBM SPSS 25 software and hypotheses were tested. As a result of the analyses, it was found that ethical leadership perception and political skill of the employee had a positive impact on employee voice. On the other hand, power distance orientation was found to have no statistically significant effect on voice behaviour. In addition, it was realized that public employees’ power distance orientation was higher than private company employees’ power distance orientation.
