Sustainability becomes a key focus in both the public and corporate sectors as a societal goal. Organisational concerns about the well-being of their employees are growing exponentially in sustainable organizations because maintaining the vibrancy of the surrounding environment is valuable for an employee’s physical health and reduces feelings of stress in the workplace. Eminent research in the field of management has also identified the role of leadership in achieving organisational sustainability. The primary objective of this study is to investigate the impact of servant leadership orientation-being (integrity, humility and servanthood) on the well-being of employees through the mediating role of self-efficacy in sustainable organizations. Through stratified sampling, data were collected from 260 supervisor-employee dyads working in public and private banks. The findings of this study indicate a robust relationship between servant leadership and employee well-being, which is mediated through self-efficacy. Recommendations can be expanded by including other servant leadership factors related to people, tasks, and process orientations in future research to improve employees' well-being.
