Using the Multilevel Model of Emotional in Organizations, this study investigates whether managers’ levels of social intelligence affect employees’ emotional labor and the emotional climate of the workplace. In addition, the mediating effect of emotional labor on social intelligence and emotional climate is defined. A total of 276 surveys were distributed among the employees of a chain hotel in Istanbul. A structural equality modeling was used to explain the relationships between social intelligence, emotional labor, and emotional climate. The results reveal that social intelligence positively and significantly affects deep acting. It is also shown that social intelligence does not affect the emotional climate, and that emotional labor has no intermediary role. Practical results and recommendations are thus suggested for future research.
