Impact of organisational culture and leadership style on quality of work-life among employees in Nigera

Ademola Benjamin Owolabi


Given the limited understanding of the impact of organizational culture and leadership style on quality of work-life, this study investigated how organizational culture and leadership styles affect employees’ quality of work life. A total of 284(Male =182, Female=102) selected employees from private and public work organizations in Ekiti State, Nigeria participated in the study and responded to the already validated scales used in the study. As hypothesized, the study reveals that organizational culture and leadership style independently and jointly significantly influence quality of work life experience by employee with individualistic dimension of organizational culture and democratic dimension of leadership style combining to impact more positively on quality of work life. Theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.

Keywords: organizational culture, leadership style, quality of work life, organizational effectiveness
