Voice Game Between Coworkers with Low Relative Leader-member Exchange

Xia Ran and Jichao Xu

Voice behavior is affected by many factors. We focus on employees with low relative leader-member exchange (RLMX) in workgroups which have been ignored, regarding their voice behaviors. The study aims to investigate the effect of the employees’ interaction on voice behaviors. We adopt evolutionary game theory to analyze the interaction process. We develop a voice game model and find three stable voice states by proving three propositions. Numerical simulations results also provide support for the propositions. The initial proportion of choosing to suggest affects the convergence velocity to the equilibrium and the benefits or costs of distinct strategies play different roles under different conditions. The finds indicate that employees with low RLMX would consider more before they take voice behaviors.
