Abstract

This study investigates the impact of three leadership styles; the transactional leadership style, the transformational leadership style and laissez faire on presenteeism among the healthcare professionals in Pakistan. Using a structured close-ended questionnaire, data were obtained from 128 healthcare employees in Karachi. After encoding, the data were entered into the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 21. Using the descriptive and inferential statistics, the data were analyzed. Linear regression was applied to gauge the impact of the three leadership styles on employee presenteeism. Results revealed that presenteeism is independent of all the three leadership styles being practiced among the healthcare professionals in Karachi. Further research into the factors causing presenteeism can lead to a better conceptualizing of this phenomenon.

Keywords: leadership styles, transactional, transformational, laissez faire, presenteeism, Pakistan
