Abstract

Commitment of employees in the workplace is a key driver of its financial performance. Many researches have mentioned that the most powerful influence on employee commitment is the quality of leadership. Present study was conducted to find out the relationships between human-oriented leader behaviour and administratively-competent team-oriented leader behaviour in relation to employee commitment. Hence, this research mainly focused on two objectives to evaluate, (1) Whether “human-oriented leader behaviour” can enhance employee commitment (2) Whether “administratively-competent team-oriented leader behaviour” can enhance employee commitment. Two hundred and fifty employees were surveyed from six organizations in the plantation sector in Sri Lanka. Results revealed that human-oriented and administratively-competent team-oriented leader behaviours play important roles in determining the levels of employee commitment in the plantation sector organizations in Sri Lanka.
