- Master of Science 
The purpose of this thesis is to contribute to more literature on the influence managers have on their employees. Here, inclusive leadership has been highlighted, while self-determination theory has been used to understand employees' needs. The study is based on 113 respondents, consisting of 61.2% girls (N=69) and 38.9% boys (N=44). The study shows that there are significant connections and correlations between two of the three basic psychological needs that have been presented in the thesis. Based on the theory, autonomy and competence are the two most important to satisfy to ensure that employees are satisfied. Furthermore, the analysis shows that there are connections that are important for employees' well-being at work, which is promoted in the thesis. The connections between the theories are not surprising as perceived support and the involvement of managers largely have a positive impact. Overall, this master's thesis promotes how inclusive leadership affects employees at work. Furthermore, the thesis highlights that linking these theories together provides an important view of employee well-being in the workplace.
