    Abstract

    Drawing on self consistency theory, this paper tests a new moderated-mediation model, where employees’ supervisor based self-esteem (SBSE) is positively related to their promotive and prohibitive voice and mediates the positive relationship between leader-member exchange social comparison (LMXSC) and their promotive and prohibitive voice, but that these relationships are weakened for expatriate employees (compared to nationals) working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). To test hypotheses, multi-source questionnaire data were collected from 341 matched supervisor-supervisee dyads working in a diverse range of companies in the KSA. As predicted, employees’ SBSE is positively related to their promotive and prohibitive voice and mediates the positive relationships between their LMXSC and their promotive and prohibitive voice behaviors, but only for Saudi nationals. This study responds to recent calls for leadership and voice research that explores the potential moderating roles of macro environmental and contextual factors on employees’ constructive voice behaviors.
