Exploring the relationship between high involvement work practices, work demands and employees’ attitudes and behaviors
The present study follows the conflicting outcomes perspective of the Human Resources Management (HRM) literature and examines the impact of employees’ perceptions of High Performance Work Systems (HPWS) on their attitudes and behaviors, measured by job satisfaction and affective commitment. Moreover, this study hypothesizes that job responsibility and work overload mediate the relationship between high performance work practices and employees’ attitudes. Last but not least, this survey follows the most recent development in the HRM literature and calculates HPWS as both a system and as subsets of HRM practices.
