The purpose of the current study was to examine the relationship between authentic leadership and organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs). In addition, communication frequency was explored as a moderator. Responses to an online survey from a total of 168 part-time and full-time employees were analyzed using hierarchical multiple regression. It was found that authentic leadership had a significant relationship with organizational citizenship behaviors. The addition of communication frequency as a moderator in the relationship between authentic leadership and organizational citizenship behavior did not produce significant results. As an exploratory analysis, mediation was tested and communication frequency was found to be a significant mediator that partially accounts for the relationship between authentic leadership and OCBs. Implications of these findings are discussed.
