Abstract

Many scholars and companies have realized that employee innovation is a powerful engine to improve organizational performance. For Chinese technology companies, an effective measure to deal with market competition is to increase employee innovation. In recent years, under the background of development requirements from the perspective of innovation, Chinese technology companies have actively implemented different measures to improve employee innovation behavior to deal with fierce competition. On the other hand, in recent years, companies have gradually realized the positive effect of leadership on employee innovation. Inclusive leadership has been embedded in the key part of leadership organization management by scholars, and they have studied its impact on improving employees' innovative ability.

This dissertation used Chinese technology companies as the research object to explore the impact of inclusive leadership on employee innovation. At the same time, this dissertation attempted to determine whether the three variables of psychological safety, psychological empowerment, and organizational citizenship behavior play a mediation role in the relationship between inclusive leadership and employee innovative behavior. By drawing on the previous maturity scales, combining the questionnaires revised by this research object, and collecting 129 valid questionnaires through an online questionnaire survey, this dissertation completed the data analysis with the help of linear regression analysis. The results of quantitative data analysis proved that inclusive leaders can promote the innovative behavior of employees. In addition, the three variables of psychological safety, psychological empowerment and organizational citizenship behavior all play an intermediary role in the relationship between inclusive leadership and employee innovation behavior, thereby promoting employee innovation. Based on this research conclusion, this dissertation recommended that Chinese technology companies take active measures to cultivate inclusive leadership, while also cultivating psychological safety, psychological empowerment, and organizational citizenship behavior within the company, thereby promoting employee innovation behavior and helping companies cope with fierceness market competition.
