Abstract

 

The high-tech electronics industry can make an important contribution to the enhancement of Taiwan’s technological standards and international competitive advantage. Under the pressures of business production performance and operations, it cannot ignore an important task for managers in Taiwan’s high-tech electronics industry that they should adopt appropriate leadership patterns, fair mechanism of construction organization, and inspire organizational citizenship behaviours in employees. On the basis of this assumption, this research is used by means of a questionnaire and to study on the effects of transformational leadership by managers and organizational justice consciousness on organizational citizenship behaviour in Taiwan’s high-tech electronics industry. Generally speaking, the research results showed that managers run transformational leadership which is unnoticeable and have low-level of organizational justice, then the organizational citizenship behaviour of their organizations’ members will be low, causing negative behaviours, such as a decrease in the centripetal force toward the company, job involvement and productivity and an increase in the turnover rate. On the contrary, managers run transformational leadership which is noticeable and have high-level of organizational justice, then the organizational citizenship behaviour of their organizations’ members will be strong, thereby having a strong centripetal force toward the company, which is also beneficial to a company’s operational performance and enhancement of productivity performance.

 

Key words: Transformational leadership, organizational justice consciousness, organizational citizenship behaviour.
