  • Making sense of sexual harassment: narratives of working women in Sri
           Lanka
    • Authors: Arosha S Adikaram
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore how Sri Lankan women make sense of their experiences of sexual harassment at the workplace using Weickian's ‘sense-making in organizations’ as the theoretical lens. Drawing from three narratives of working women, the findings indicate how women seek to understand what is going on, through a complex and interrelated process of enacting, selection, action and reaction, where retrospection, focusing and extracting on cues, social processes and identity construction, takes place in an ongoing process of sense-making. The findings move beyond previous studies by providing an in-depth understanding of the multifaceted process of sense-making in its entirety from experiencing sexual harassment to responding to it, in a backdrop of cultural norms and beliefs.

  • Control and involvement HR practices in Indian call centres: still
           searching for answers
    • Authors: Subramaniam Ananthram; Stephen TT Teo, Julia Connell, Adelle Bish
      Abstract: Call centres were established primarily to reduce organizational costs while simultaneously providing high-quality customer service. To support this ‘twin constraints’ strategy, a range of human resource (HR) practices tends to be used in call centres that focus simultaneously on both control and involvement. To date, there has been a lack of empirical evidence concerning the outcome of such HR practices on call centre frontline staff (call centre representatives – CCRs). Consequently, this paper attempts to bridge this gap using a sample of 250 CCRs from Indian call centres. The findings show that, while the simultaneous use of involvement-and control-oriented HR practices had a positive impact on CCR job satisfaction, it also resulted in employee exhaustion and disengagement. These findings suggest that while involvement-oriented HR practices enhance CCR job satisfaction, they come at a cost which is potentially a key factor leading to high CCR turnover.

  • Lean production and the well-being of the frontline manager: the job
           
    • Authors: Meng-Long Huo; Peter Boxall
      Abstract: Frontline managers (FLMs) are critical to the implementation of lean production yet its effect on their well-being is a neglected subject. Illustrating the value of the job demands – resources model as a diagnostic tool, this study examines the impact of lean production on FLM well-being in a Chinese manufacturer. Following qualitative interviews, survey responses from 226 FLMs were analysed through structural equation modelling. The analysis demonstrated the impact of relevant training, top management support and the level of pay as valuable resources for Chinese FLMs, stimulating their work engagement in a lean context. On the other hand, role overload showed a strong relationship with exhaustion. While perceptions of distributive justice can, to some extent, ameliorate feelings of exhaustion, other resources will most likely need to be mobilised to address the threat to the health of FLMs posed by high levels of work pressure.

  • Green human resource management practices: scale development and validity
    • Authors: Guiyao Tang; Yang Chen, Yuan Jiang, Pascal Paillé, Jin Jia
      Abstract: Previous studies on green human resource management (GHRM) are mainly positioned at theoretical or qualitative level. There is urgent need to develop a valid measurement of GHRM and then to offer more insights into the implication of it on individual or organizational performance. The aim of this study was to propose and validate an instrument to measure GHRM. Based on exploratory analysis (study 1), it was established that GHRM includes five dimensions: green recruitment and selection, green training, green performance management, green pay and reward, and green involvement. Confirmatory factor analysis (study 2) was used to confirm the factor structure of study 1. The results indicated that the proposed measurement is valid. This study is the first and also the most comprehensive one to measure main human resource practices for environmental management, which can provide broader focus for further research and for practitioners.

  • Cross-level effects of high-commitment work systems on work engagement:
           the mediating role of psychological capital
    • Authors: Shu-Ling Chen
      Abstract: This study integrates theories from strategic human resource management and the job demands – resources model and focuses on exploring the cross-level relationship between high-commitment work systems and work engagement. It includes further investigation into whether the emerging core construct of positive psychological capital plays a role in mediating the effects of high-commitment work systems on work engagement. Data were collected from multiple sources, including 94 managers and 344 service employees at 47 stores in Taiwanese retail chain enterprises. The study's results show that high-commitment work systems are positively correlated with work engagement and mediate work engagement through psychological capital. The implications of this research and possible limitations and directions for future research are then discussed.

  • Mindfulness and job performance: a study of Australian leaders
    • Authors: Elizabeth King; Jarrod M Haar
      Abstract: Mindfulness relates to being aware of the present reality and living in the moment, and, while linked to well-being, it has only recently been tested on specific leader samples. Despite attention, the links between mindfulness and job performance are scarce, with the performance of leaders especially so. The present study tests self-reported mindfulness from 84 Australian leaders towards two forms of leadership performance as rated by their immediate manager. Using structural equation modelling, we find mindfulness is positively related to leadership self-mastery and leadership organizational-transformation. The best fit for the data was a full mediation model: mindfulness predicting leadership self-mastery, predicting leadership organizational-transformation. Furthermore, we tested for the moderating effects of tenure duration and found that mindfulness was especially beneficial for leadership self-mastery at low tenure duration. Findings suggest that leadership performance may ultimately be enhanced by having leaders who are more mindful and present at work.

  • What one thinks determines one's actions: the importance of employees’
           perception in implementing HR systems
    • Authors: Jang-Ho Choi
      Abstract: Although a number of studies have focused on the mediating relationship between HR systems and performance at both a firm-level analysis and a cross-level analysis, only a few have examined the importance of employees’ perception in implementing HR systems. Using a massive database that included 6709 employees in 245 manufacturing firms in South Korea, this study examines the relationship between HR systems and two types of firm performance – financial performance and employee job satisfaction – through regression analyses and hierarchical linear modeling. In addition, the study investigates the mediating effect of the employees’ positive perception of HR systems. The results indicate that HR systems had an influence on the performance of firms and that the employees’ positive perception of HR systems had a mediating effect on the HR–performance relationship in both a firm-level and a cross-level analysis.

  • Subordinate's proactivity in performance planning: implications for
           performance management systems
    • Authors: Alfred Presbitero; Mendiola Teng-Calleja
      Abstract: Previous studies have called for the investigation of individual-level factors that influence performance management systems. Drawing on self-regulation theory, this study investigates subordinate's proactivity in performance planning. Self-regulation theory suggests that individuals can actively participate in planning for the future by having standards and monitoring themselves through self-regulatory processes. Given the integral role that subordinates play in the effectiveness of performance management systems, this study carefully examines their self-regulation in the form of proactivity in relation to performance planning. Using matched data obtained from 225 subordinates and their respective supervisors in an organisation in Australia, results show that proactive personality or the tendency of an individual to be relatively unconstrained by situational factors is found to be positively and significantly related to proactive performance planning. In addition, results show that proactive feedback-seeking behaviour or the active solicitation of feedback partially mediates the relationship between proactive personality and proactive performance planning.

  • How likely am I to return home' A study of New Zealand self-initiated
           expatriates
    • Authors: Valerie Lindsay; Revti Raman Sharma, Shaleen Rashad
      Abstract: Our study contributes to the research domain of self-initiated repatriation, focusing on the drivers of self-initiated expatriates’ intention to repatriate (ITR). We examine the impact of selected individual characteristics (gender, ethnicity, international experience), contextual factors (spouse job availability, nature of networks, host-country location) and the established home-country pull factors (economic opportunities, lifestyle and relational considerations) on self-initiated expatriates’ ITR. We also examine the moderating effects of gender and international experience. Based on a sample of 248 New Zealand self-initiated expatriates (SIEs), the findings support the role of the established home-country pull factors, but a number of the additional contextual factors and individual characteristics of SIEs, as well as the moderation effects of gender and international experience represent new findings and offer contributions to the SIE repatriation literature.

  • Exploring the antecedents of employees’ developmental network
           characteristics: does context matter'
    • Authors: Jeong Won Lee
      Abstract: Reflecting today's turbulent business environment, mentoring research has broadened its focus from traditional dyadic relationships to developmental networks. Drawing on developmental network and social information processing theory, the present study examined the effects of work context on employees’ developmental network characteristics. The multi-level data collected from 681 employees at 42 companies in Korea provided empirical evidence of the influence of three contextual factors (industry sector, organizational culture, and HR practice). Specifically, service firms showed a positive relationship with employees’ network range and relationship strength with developers (or multiple mentors). Adhocracy culture was positively associated with the range, strength, and size of developmental networks, whereas market culture showed a negative relationship with tie strength. Finally, formal mentoring programs were found to be positively related to tie strength and negatively related to network size. These findings extend previous developmental network research by integrating contextual factors, which have thus far been neglected.

  • Flexible working arrangements in residential aged care: applying a
           person–environment fit model
    • Authors: Victoria P Weale; Yvonne D Wells, Jodi Oakman
      Abstract: Ensuring sufficient staff numbers to accommodate an increasing need for aged-care services is one challenge facing the residential aged-care sector. Human resources management (HRM) policy and practice need to explore ways flexible working arrangements can be utilised to improve recruitment and retention. This study applied a person–environment (P–E) fit model to understanding the role of flexible working arrangements in contributing to the successful operation of residential aged-care facilities in Victoria, Australia. A sample of 108 residential aged-care workers participated in semi-structured interviews to discuss flexible working arrangements, facilitators and barriers affecting their use and uptake, and individual and organisation outcomes resulting from their use. HRM should encourage the development and implementation of policies and practices related to flexible working arrangements in residential aged care, and their uptake by staff, to enhance P–E fit, thus supporting people to remain in their jobs.

  • The direct and moderating effect of learning orientation on individual
           performance in the banking industry in China: contextualization of
           high-performance work systems
    • Authors: Nan Ning; Jue Wang, Zhaohong Lin, Zhiyu Zheng
      Abstract: Extant research on learning orientation (LO) has primarily examined the effects of LO on organizational-level performance from a management perspective. Meanwhile, the black box relationship between high-performance work systems (HPWS) and individual outcomes has not been fully explored. The current study examines the cross-level relationship between perceived unit-level LO and individual-level performance and investigates the moderation effect of LO in the HPWS – individual performance relationship. With a participant sample of 1887 individuals from 74 work-units in the banking industry in China, a cross-level model was tested using hierarchical linear modeling. Work-unit-level LO was found to have significant impact on individual performance and positively moderate the relationship between HPWS and individual performance. The implications of these findings and the research limitations were also discussed.

  • High-performance work systems and employee engagement: empirical evidence
           from China
    • Authors: Yufang Huang; Zhenzhong Ma, Yong Meng
      Abstract: Employee engagement and commitment has been a very important issue in human resource managers’ agenda. The present study adds to the literature by examining the impact of high-performance work systems (HPWS) on employee attitudes and on employee engagement in China in response to the increasing interest in the universalistic effects of HPWS in the globalized world market. With the data from 782 employees working in China's manufacturing and service sectors, this study shows that HPWS are positively related to employees’ positive mood and job satisfaction, and that job satisfaction and positive mood lead to high employee engagement. Moreover, employee's positive mood and job satisfaction also mediate the relationship between HPWS and employee engagement. The result helps explore one mechanism via which HPWS affect employee behaviors and provides empirical evidence for the applicability of HPWS in an international context.

  • Cosmetic facial surgery: the influence of self-esteem on job satisfaction
           and burnout
    • Authors: Alicia R Kalus; Christina Cregan
      Abstract: Using knowledge-based theories of self-esteem, we investigate the relationship between employed adults' change in self-esteem following cosmetic facial surgery and changes in their job satisfaction and workplace burnout. Quantitative data are collected from patients who have undergone cosmetic facial surgical procedures within a four-year period. The survey responses of 106 employed adults are analysed using hierarchical moderator regression. The findings show a positive relationship between change in self-esteem and change in job satisfaction, and a negative relationship with change in burnout. Cumulative effects are identified. For those who strongly perceive an improvement in their post-operative self-esteem, the longer the time since surgery, the greater the increase in job satisfaction and decrease in burnout; for those who strongly perceive their self-esteem has not improved, the greater the decrease in job satisfaction. These results demonstrate that the influence of change in self-esteem following surgery extends into the workplace.

  • The growth of non-standard employment in Japan and South Korea: the role
           of institutional actors and impact on workers and the labour market
    • Authors: Fang Lee Cooke; Yumei Jiang
      Abstract: A key trend in the development of the global economy is the informalisation of employment. A number of studies have emerged that capture the growth and characteristics of non-standard employment in Japan and South Korea as two major world economies that are experiencing relative decline in growth. However, limited is understood in the role of institutional actors in shaping the labour markets and how these two neighbouring countries may, despite similarities, differ in terms of forms of non-standard employment and the institutional and cultural reasons that underpin the differences. This review study fills part of the gap by providing a systematic analysis of changes in the labour market in Japan and South Korea, the role of institutional actors in shaping the informal labour market, patterns of non-standard employment and its impacts on individual workers as well as the development of the labour market. The paper concludes that informalisation has led to the decline of job quality on a relatively large scale in these two countries and that a greater level of state intervention is necessary to maintain workforce well-being and economic sustainability.
