Interpersonal trust has emerged as a significant concept in enhancing employee well-being and organisational effectiveness. Against this background, the purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between integrity, ethical leadership and trust in the leader. A theoretical model is proposed to demonstrate how the different constructs are related to one another. The postulated relationships and the conceptual model were empirically tested, based on data collected from a convenience sample of 204 employees. The results indicated positive relationships between ethical leadership and trust in the leader; between integrity and ethical leadership; and between integrity and trust in the leader. Managerial implications are proposed, and some suggestions are made for future research.
