Daniel Roque Gomes, Maria João Santos, Neuza Ribeiro, Gabriela Gomes
Sustainable Human Resources Management (SHRM) is gaining relevance as a promising new subject of interest on management literature, as a way of aligning organizational sustainability’ concerns with the way how workers are managed in competitive organizations. This study analyses the relationship between SHRM and Employee’s performance and evaluates the mediator role of Organizational Attractiveness on this relationship. To carry out this study, 176 workers from several business sectors were surveyed in a quantitative cross-sectional study aiming to access the content of the foreseen relations. Using Baron & Kenny’s (1986) steps for accessing mediational effects, main results have pointed that organizational attractiveness fully mediates the relationship between SHRM and employee’s performance. The bearing of these results seems to point that the way how workers perceive the impact of SHRM delivers a positive impact on the way how the organization is being viewed by them as a good place to work, and this process predicts performance. These results are discussed regarding the impact on current literature, as well as for the purpose of generating discussion over the topic of SHRM practices supporting implementation by practitioners.
