Abstract: ABSTRACT In recent years, sustainability in healthcare has been concerned globally. One of the healthcare sectors which accounts for major contribution of the whole system is pharmaceutical industry. There are few studies investigated about the leadership practices in this industry. The objective of this study was to empirically examine which sustainable leadership (SL) factors (Honeybee) significantly affect perceived Sustainability Performance Outcomes (SPO) and employee satisfaction in the Thai pharmaceutical organizations. The scope of this study was based on managers and employees who were working in pharmaceutical organizations, which mainly sell their products within Thailand. The study used quantitative research by analyzing collected data from structured questionnaire from 543 respondents. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to investigate the relationship between exogenous and endogenous variables. After all assessment, the evidence and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) revealed that unidimensionality, validity, and reliability of the model was acceptable. The findings from SEM showed that the direct effects from SL factors to both SPO and employee satisfaction were positive. All effects were statistically significant; the exception is for social responsibility for SPO, as well as environmental responsibility and social responsibility for employee satisfaction. However, the model supported a positive predictive relationship between SL factors with both SPO and employee satisfaction in Thai pharmaceutical organizations. The results narrowed gaps in the literatures, which separately investigated each dimension of sustainable leadership. The structural equation model provided more understanding towards the leadership and management factors in Thai pharmaceutical organizations
