Abstract: This exploratory study aimed to investigate the Employee Voice
Behaviours (EVB) in the African context, and Zimbabwe was chosen as a case
study. A sample of 30 volunteers was used in this study and data was collected
via WhatsApp social media. The structured interviews were employed to
collect data. Thus, the data was collected and placed into categories as a
framework. The data analysis included descriptive statistics, multiple
regression, correlation and framework. The results indicated that the majority
of employees in Zimbabwe present constructive voices than destructive
behaviours. The findings also established that Zimbabwean workforce
remains disciplined in their organisations. The study again found that the
majority of people working in organisations in Zimbabwe is neither married
nor have children. Also, the majority go to church and do not consume
alcohol/smoke. However, besides a small sample that could have affected the
outcome, this study concludes that understanding of EVB remains elusive;
therefore, more studies are required in this field. Future researchers should
consider qualitative methods with larger samples to establish these variations.
Besides, the current research presents significant findings that could inform
policy-makers in Zimbabwean organisations.
