For any organisation to be successful, employee performance is very crucial. The growing importance of leadership roles and behaviours in increasing virtual teams’ employee performance has been the catalyst of this study. The study is empiric in nature. Focus-group discussions and online survey using a questionnaire were done, yielding 180 replies from virtual groups of software professionals of Bengaluru. The data gathered is then analysed with the IBM SPSS 20 application utilising inference and descriptive statistics. The study indicated a positively significant correlation among the leadership behaviours and work characteristics, which leads to improved employee performance in the teams that are virtual. The analysis provides experiential data that reinforces the idea of leadership behaviours, which states that whenever leaders demonstrate greater levels of task and relations oriented leadership behaviour contributing to work characteristics in a simulated setting, employee performance can be optimised. The study’s managerial implications and potential possibilities for further research are mentioned at the end of the paper.
