Abstract: Soliciting and incorporating the constructive voice of employees is very essential for a competitive edge of an organisation. We tested that thriving employees and employees with high curiosity are more prone to constructive voice behaviour. Data were collected in two waves over a two-month time period from multiple sources, i.e., 421 employees and 280 supervisors and managers working in diverse service organisations. The findings of our research support the notion that thriving and curiosity are important predictors whereas, increase in incivility restrains voice behaviours. We have discussed the strengths, practical implications, as also the directions for future research on constructive voice behaviour.
