Abstract

Previous studies rarely examined the relationships among environmental training, environmental behavior of employee and environmental orientation of organization. Moreover, most studies neglect the mediating effect of environmental behavior of employee on the relationship between environmental training and environmental orientation of organization. Hence, this paper aims to examine the relationships among environmental training, environmental behavior of employee and environmental orientation of organization and the mediating effect of environmental behavior of employee on the relationship between environmental training and environmental orientation of organization. In order to achieve the study objectives, primary data were collected from 108 employees of a leading apparel company which is operating in Batticaloa and Polonnnaruwa areas of Sri Lanka. The simple mediation analysis was used to test the research model. Findings of the study revealed that, there are positive and significant relationships existing among the study variables. Moreover, empirical finding of the study indicated that environmental behavior of employee does not mediate the relationship between environmental training and environmental orientation of organization. The empirical finding of the study contradicted with what was hypothesized in the study. Hence, further empirical studies should be carried out to test and prove the mediating role of environmental behavior of employee.
