The aim of this research was to investigate the relationships between employee perceptions of leadership dimensions, cultural beliefs and salutogenic functioning within a multi-cultural workforce. Inter-correlations and factor analysis of the data (N=300) identified three separate constructs, namely leadership (comprising perceptions of organisational climate, supervisory support and team work), cultural beliefs and salutogenic functioning (comprising of sense of coherence, self-efficacy, locus of control and hardiness). Many significant correlations existed between the dimensions of the three constructs. Confirmatory factor analysis showed that a model of good fit existed, confirming a structural relationship between leadership dimensions, cultural beliefs and salutogenic functioning. The nature of these relationships are discussed and recommendations are formulated towards improved individual, management, leadership and organisational development.
