Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to examine the effect of charismatic leadership on affective organizational commitment of employees in accommodation establishments and to measure the mediating effect of work engagement in this relationship. A questionnaire was conducted to collect data. Questionnaires were conveyed via e-mail, and 481 applicable questionnaires were gathered. Using the AMOS program, the research hypotheses were tested with structural equation modeling (SEM). As a result of the analysis, it was found that the charismatic leadership style of the managers has a positive and significant effect on the affective organizational commitment of employees; and work engagement has a mediating effect on the relationship between charismatic leadership and affective organizational commitment. No study has been found in the literature investigating the mediating effect of work engagement on the relationship between charismatic leadership and affective organizational commitment.
