The purpose of this research is to analyze the impact of supportive leadership and supervisor voice behavior on employee voice behavior in the ceramic industry in Pakistan. The study also aims to investigate the role of trust in the supervisor as a mediator between the independent and dependent variables. The data was collected through a survey questionnaire from 180 employees working in ceramic companies in Karachi, Pakistan. The statistical analysis was conducted using SPSS and PLS-SEM to test the hypotheses. The findings of the study indicate that both supportive leadership and supervisor voice behavior have a positive effect on employee voice behavior. This implies that when employees perceive their supervisors to be supportive and they provide opportunities for employee participation and involvement, they are more likely to voice their opinions and ideas freely. Additionally, supportive leadership has a direct and positive impact on employee voice behavior. This implies that when employees receive supportive leadership, they are more likely to voice their opinions and ideas. The study also found that trust in supervision mediates the relationship between supervisor voice behavior, supportive leadership, and employee voice behavior. This suggests that when employees trust their supervisors, they are more likely to perceive their supervisors as providing a supportive leadership style and engaging in voice behavior, which ultimately leads to increased employee voice behavior. The research provides valuable insights for managers and supervisors in the ceramic industry of Pakistan. It highlights the importance of supportive leadership and supervisor voice behavior in promoting employee voice behavior. Managers and supervisors can use this information to create a positive work environment that encourages employee participation and involvement. They can also work towards building trust with their employees to increase their perceptions of supportive leadership and supervisor voice behavior.
