Inclusive Leadership, Workgroup Inclusion, Eudaimonic & Hedonic Well-being


The study at hand investigates the impact of inclusive leadership on two dimensions of Wellbeing, both eudaimonic and hedonic. The study investigates how workgroup inclusion serves as a mediator in this relationship. The investigation employs Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) using the partial least squares method to explore the direct and mediated impacts based on data from 405 participants from residential care organizations in the UK. The findings indicate that inclusive-leadership's direct influence on eudaimonic and hedonic Wellbeing is not statistically significant. Workgroup inclusion, however, emerges as a crucial mediator in this relationship. The current study contributes to the existing body of research by shedding light on the essential function of workgroup inclusion, focusing primarily on the direct correlation between inclusive-leadership and employee Wellbeing. The result suggests that inclusive-leadership fosters an environment in which employees perceive themselves as an indispensable member of their work teams, exerting a beneficial influence on their overall Wellbeing and satisfaction. These observations emphasize the need to foster an inclusive culture for organizational leaders and managers to improve employee Wellbeing. The research validates that incorporating workgroups enhances employees’ sense of belongingness and improves their Wellbeing in the workplace. This study offers valuable perspectives on enhancing job happiness and overall satisfaction.
