Abstract

Prior research highlighted the significance of transformational leadership in predicting important job outcomes using different mechanisms. However, psychological safety and pro-environmental behaviour received considerable less attention in the hospitality industry. Drawing on social exchange theory and supplies-values fit theory, we investigated the effect of transformational leadership on follower’s job satisfaction via psychological safety and green human resource management (GHRM) practices in hospitality organizations. We collected time-lagged survey data from hotels employees in Malaysia. Moreover, we tested the data using Mplus. We found support for the direct effect of transformational leadership on job satisfaction. In addition, we found support for the indirect effects of transformational leadership on job satisfaction via psychological safety and GHRM. We discussed the implications of the study in the hospitality industry.
