  •  Safaa Shaaban    


Business leaders are facing an uncertain issue regarding what extent their actions and decisions are responsible for the sustainable development supported by Responsible Employees. Although, several papers are discussing the concept of Responsible Leadership (RL) and Sustainable Leadership (SL). However, there is still an important missing element connected to these two leadership approaches which are Responsible Employee/s (RE). The purpose of this paper is to explore how Responsible Leadership and Sustainable Leadership affect Responsible Employees (RE). The study will examine the impact of two leadership approaches on RE. A sample of 250 employees and future leaders’ positions working in the 18 factories and companies located in Egypt responded to a four parts questionnaire measuring research variables (Responsible Leadership, Sustainable Leadership and Responsible Employees). This study applies statistical analysis using SPSS, regression analysis, correlation, and structure equation module applied for this study. The finding of this study shows that Sustainable Leadership fully mediates the relationship between Responsible Leadership and Responsible Employees.
