Abstract

The aim of this paper is to study the effect of leadership relationship on the interplay between ethical culture of an organisation and organisational trust, in particular, its affective and cognitive components in public and private sector organisations in Lithuania. The empirical data were collected with an electronic and paper survey using a standardised questionnaire in 2013-2014 (n=1070, seven private organisations, npr=313 and one public organisation, npub=757). A series of linear regression analysis established a mediating effect of leadership relationship on the interplay between ethical culture of an organisation and organisational trust in private organisations, without significant difference on its affective and cognitive components.
