Abstract

Despite much research on how to foster innovation in public organizations, little research has been conducted at a workgroup level. Against this backdrop, this study examines how servant leadership, ethical climate, and performance-oriented climate jointly influence workgroup innovative behaviours in public organizations. The results of this study suggest that servant leadership and ethical climate have positive relationships with workgroup innovative behaviour in general. In addition, a performance-oriented climate was found to moderate the relationship between servant leadership and workgroup innovative behaviour.
