MODERATOR ROLE OF GENDER IN THE EFFECT OF ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT ON ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY BEHAVIOUR IN HOTEL EMPLOYEES

The primary purpose of the present study is to demonstrate the moderator role of gender in the effect of the environmental commitment of hotel business employees on environmental responsibility behaviour. The Scanning Method was applied in the study. The sampling of the study consisted of 397 employees working in five-star hotel businesses in the Antalya region between September and October 2019. The Questionnaire form was preferred as the data collection tool in the study. The data obtained as a result of the study were subjected to statistical analyses. These analyses were frequency analysis, reliability analysis, factor analysis, and regression analysis. As a result of the regression analysis, it was found that the environmental commitment levels of employees in hotel businesses had a positive and moderate effect on environmental responsibility behaviour. It was also found that gender had a moderator role in the effect of environmental commitment in employees on environmental responsibility behaviour.

OTEL ÇALIŞANLARINDA ÇEVRESEL BAĞLILIĞIN ÇEVRESEL SORUMLULUK DAVRANIŞINA ETKİSİNDE CİNSİYETİN MODERATÖR ROLÜ

Bu araştırmanın temel amacı, otel işletmelerindeki çalışanlarda çevresel bağlılığın çevresel sorumluluk davranışına etkisinde cinsiyetin moderatör rolünü ortaya koymaktır. Araştırmada tarama yöntemi uygulanmıştır. Araştırmanın örneklemini 2019 yılı Eylül- Ekim ayları arasında Antalya bölgesinde bulunan beş yıldızlı otel işletmelerindeki 397 çalışan oluşturmaktadır. Araştırmada veri toplama yöntemi olarak anket tekniği tercih edilmiştir. Araştırma sonucu elde edilen veriler istatistiksel analizlere tabi tutulmuştur. Bu analizler frekans dağılımı, güvenilirlik analizi, faktör analizi ve regresyon analizidir. Regresyon analizi sonucunda, otel işletmelerinde çalışanların çevresel bağlılık düzeylerinin çevresel sorumluluk davranışı üzerinde pozitif yönlü orta derecede bir etkisinin olduğu saptanmıştır. Ayrıca çalışanlarda çevresel bağlılığın çevresel sorumluluk davranışına etkisinde cinsiyetin moderatör role sahip olduğu tespit edilmiştir.
