  • Abstract In these recent years, business environments have increasingly changed at a rapid rate over the world. When organizations face such a dynamic business environment, solving problems not only depends on top managers’ decisions, but also employees’ voices. A study indicates that sometimes employees’ suggestions, ideas and information about problem in organization may concern with organization’s performance or even its survival. Based on social exchange theory, this study explores how meaningful work exerts influence on promotive and prohibitive voice; moreover, it will test if transformational leadership moderates this relationship.
    This study collected data from 40 companies and 174 employees. Results show that perception of meaningful work is positively related to promotive voice and prohibitive voice; as employee’s perception of meaningfulness for work is lower, high transformational leadership does facilitate prohibitive voice behaviors. Practical implications are as follows: organizations should be devoted to enhancing employees’ psychological states of meaningfulness of work. In addition, supervisors should perform specific leadership style under different conditions.
