Human Resource Practices And Organizational Commitment: A Deeper Examination
Source: ILR School, Cornell University
This paper examines newer conceptualizations of HRM practices in the HR-Performance Relationship as well as newer conceptualizations of commitment. Juxtaposing these categories of HR practices and types of commitment provides a clearer theoretical rational for at least some ways that HR practices can influence organizational performance, be that positive or negative. Implications for research are then discussed. In a world increasingly characterized by globalization of product markets, the importance of human capital as a resource that can potentially provide competitive advantage has become more important.
