      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Volume 9, Issue 1, Page 130-148, June 2022.
      In this competitive global market, where organisations struggle to attract the best talent, providing a unique employer value proposition (EVP), educational sector does not lag behind other sectors. In this study, the researchers tried to identify the dimensions of employer brand attractiveness among higher educational institutions’ potential faculty members. Furthermore, this study compares higher educational institutions’ attractiveness dimensions as employers among potential faculty members based on gender. A sample of 250 potential faculty members of higher educational institutions has been drawn from the national capital region (NCR), India. Confirmatory factor analysis and independent-sample t-test has been used to attain the objectives of the study. The study highlighted that economic value, social value, developmental value, interest value and application value significantly contribute to higher educational intuitions’ employer attractiveness. Furthermore, the independent sample t-test showed a significant difference among male and female potential employees of higher education institutions based on application value. The remaining dimensions, namely economic, social, developmental and interest, do not significantly differ. The study will help the management of higher educational institutions frame their unique EVP to attract quality academic talent.

  • People Analytics Enabling HR Strategic Partnership: A Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Neha Suri, Pooja Lakhanpal
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      For more than two decades, academicians and practitioners have been theorising the role of people analytics in enhancing the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of the human resource (HR) management function, thereby prescribing people analytics as an enabler of HR strategic partnership. The objective of this study is to identify and synthesise existing literature on people analytics and its conceptualised efficacy. This is done with a view to assess how and why people analytics enhances HR as a field and elevates it to a function of strategic significance. The study uses the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) framework for systematic literature review to address the research objective. A total of 90 articles on the subject are identified majorly from Scopus. The analysis of this literature reveals four significant themes underscoring the role people analytics can play in enabling HR as a field and function. These include the following: (a) application of people analytics leads to greater vertical, horizontal and external alignment of the HR function; (b) people analytics facilitates better integration of HR management with the organisation’s strategic planning process; (c) people analytics aids the demonstration of causal links between HR management and business performance; and finally (d) people analytics endows the field with scientific rigour, consistency and resulting credibility. The study contributes to the existing knowledge on people analytics and HR strategy linkage by building a foundation and offering specific propositions for empirical enquiry relating the two. The significance of the study also emanates from its focus on the efficacy of people analytics which is being viewed as an HR approach with immense potential.

  • The Influence of Organisational Culture on Employee Commitment: An
           Empirical Study on Civil Service Officials in Bangladesh

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Iffat Jahan, Thanh Huynh, Gideon Mass
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of organisational culture on the commitment of officers in the Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS; Administration) cadre. The study examines the relationships between four organisational cultural characteristics and a three-component commitment model. The quantitative data analysis was conducted using data collected via a survey from 211 respondents. The research findings indicate that mission, one of the organisational cultural traits, has a significant impact on the affective, normative and continuing commitment of the BCS (Administration) cadre. Only normative commitment is strongly influenced by involvement, another organisational cultural characteristic. This study’s findings will contribute to the body of knowledge about organisational culture and employee commitment in public organisations. This result can be used to increase officer commitment by top management or the responsible departments. If officers remain committed to the service, this will ultimately result in an increase in productivity, performance and efficiency, as well as a decrease in absenteeism and an increase in officer morale. This will ultimately add value to the services provided to the general public in Bangladesh, as the administration cadre is critical in formulating and implementing public policies.

  • Advancing Public Service Innovation Through Empathy: An Analysis of
           Bangladesh’s Intrepid Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shah Md Azimul Ehsan, Farhad Hossain, Derek Eldridge, Shahjahan Bhuiyan
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      This study attempts to understand, explore and analyse how Bangladesh public administration has made considerable progress in fostering public service innovation (PSI) by instilling empathy among the public bureaucrats through the Empathy Training Programme (ETP). By employing qualitative methods, this study collected data from both primary and secondary sources. The empirical findings of the study suggest that ETP has been able to change the paternalistic and colonial mindset of public bureaucrats. In addition, the study further reveals that public bureaucrats are bringing this knowledge of empathy-led innovation to their workplaces, where they are effectively practising it, indicating that the ETP has not only been able to generate a cultural change in the Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) but also has created a sense of responsiveness and self-accountability among public bureaucrats. However, there are still areas of concern in terms of the sustainability of the ETP approach. The study also identified some critical building blocks, which have been considered responsible for the limited scaling up of the pilot projects. Finally, the study has come up with a set of recommendations for making this intrepid approach to Bangladesh public administration more effective.

      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Kotak Mahindra Life Insurance Company Limited ((in short, Kotak Life) is one of India’s fastest-growing insurance companies in India. It is well regarded as a reputed, admired and sustainable company that believes in and practices the value of being ‘people-friendly’. Hence, the company invests significant time, effort and money in developing its employees. In this interview, we explore an HR practitioner’s perspective on human capital development and its evolvement in the COVID-19 context in India. Specifically, we interviewed the Senior Vice President Human Resources and Head Organisation Capability and Development and, DE&I of Kotak Life to understand the human capital development process at Kotak Life Insurance. Given that this interview was conducted during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India, we also explored how the human capital development process was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and, thus, appropriately modified through the medium of digitalisation.

  • How Ambidextrous Human Resource System Affect Employee Creativity' A
           Study in the Pakistani Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Aiza Yasmeen, Muhammad Majid Khan, Wajid Shakeel Ahmed
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Strategic human resource management scholars have devoted substantial research to determine the relationship between human resource management (HRM) and creativity. It has focused primarily on HRM architecture at the macro level: exploring the effect of the HRM system on performance related to capacity building, skills and competencies. In framing that HRM architecture, this macro focus informs organisations about how to promote creativity. However, literature on how a creativity-targeted HRM system, for instance, the ambidextrous HR system, influences employees’ perceptions and experiences to be more creative at the individual level is still limited. The multilevel perspective on how the HRM system can potentially promote the creativity of employees is still limited. The multilevel data from 100 HR heads and 400 faculty employees of public and private sector universities show that the top-down effect of the ambidextrous HR system on employee creativity is partially mediated by ambidextrous learning and organisation-based self-esteem. Based on the findings, the study offers practical and theoretical implications.

  • Career Satisfaction in Maximising Professionals of Indian IT Industry:
           Mediating Roles of Contrasting Responses Based on Counterfactual Reasoning
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sayoni Santra, Vijai N. Giri
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      This study conceptualises career maximisation and its consequences in the Indian Information Technology (IT) workforce, a globally significant non-Western talent pool. It examined how maximising tendency in career decision-making (MT-CD) mediated career satisfaction through two contrasting responses based on counterfactual reasoning―career regret (dysfunctional) and career adaptability (functional). The study comprised of two parts. In Study 1, scales for MT-CD and career regret were developed and initially validated using a 172 respondents’ dataset. In Study 2, data from 434 respondents were analysed for psychometric evaluation and further validation of scales along with determining hypothesised relationships. Two dimensions of MT-CD were identified―‘state of internal career ambiguity’ and ‘striving for career excellence’. Both attributes produced career regret (an aggregated measure of ‘corporate regrets’, ‘career choice regrets’ and ‘developmental regrets’ dimensions), decreasing career satisfaction. Only ‘striving for career excellence’ led to career adaptability, which subsequently increased career satisfaction. Altogether, career regret competed with career adaptability, supressing its positive indirect effect on maximising ITPs’ career satisfaction. This study expands the current empirical research on career maximisation into non-Western contexts, adding unique knowledge to the Indian IT workforce’s vocational literature.

  • Role of Social Support in Lessening Expatriate Turnover Intention

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: R. A. I. C. Karunarathne
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Research has long recognised that employee withdrawal cognition is a critical issue for organisations due to the direct and indirect costs associated with that. Drawing upon social support theory, we examine the influence of three distinct types of support expatriates can receive, that is, organisation, co-workers and partner, on an expatriate’s turnover intention. Furthermore, we investigate if the effects of support types differ depending on the expatriate’s employment status. This study is based upon positivism research philosophy, and the research approach is deductive. Moreover, we used the survey method as the research strategy and used hierarchical linear regression to analyse the data. Results of a time-lagged (two-wave) study of 167 expatriates show that perceived organisational support (POS), co-worker support and partner support are negatively related to expatriates’ turnover intention. Moreover, results show that expatriates’ employment status interacts with POS and co-worker support in predicting turnover intention, implying that social support is more pronounced with expatriates with fewer resources. Thus, the present study enhances our understanding of the effects of different support types on expatriates’ turnover intention and elucidates the role of individual-level boundary conditions. The results of this study emphasize that social support is a stronger predictor of expatriate turnover intent, in particular, individuals with fewer resources. We suggest that managers of the companies should make a serious effort in creating a supportive culture and positive employee relationships.

  • Levelling Up Organisational Learning Through Gamification: Based on
           Evidence from Public Sector Organisations in India

      Authors: Sridevi Nair, Jain Mathew, Ravikumar T
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      The concept of sustainability brought into focus the need for research into how to measure and achieve sustainable growth. The triple bottom line framework and the resource-based view of the firm suggest the need for organisations to look beyond profits and take into consideration the needs and effectiveness of its workforce. Research suggests that an effective workforce can be achieved through constant learning and development. Organisations have also expressed the need for training techniques that are more effective than the traditional methods. Gamification has been proposed as one such technique, and in the current study, the researchers evaluate the effectiveness of gamification in organisational training. For the purpose of the current study, 120 participants were chosen from public sector organisations in India. This is primarily because the technology-enhanced training effectiveness model (TETEM) suggests that the effectiveness of gamification would depend on the culture of the organisation, and prior research has been based in privately owned firms. The findings are in line with the theory of gamified learning and suggest that participants of the gamified module reported higher levels of learning, reaction and learner motivation. Additionally, learner motivation was found to strengthen the impact of gamification on the learning and reaction.

           Involvement among Indian IT Workers during COVID-19

      Authors: Priyanka Bhowmik, Pratishtha Bhattacharyya, Kalpana Sahoo
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Organisational justice has attained considerable attention due to work-related uncertainties induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the uncertainty management theory of fairness at work, social exchange theory and norm reciprocity theory, this article investigates the mediating effects of work-related quality of life and job embeddedness on the relationship between organisational justice and job involvement during COVID-19. Data were collected through a survey questionnaire from five IT companies in India. Hayes’ PROCESS macro was used to test the parallel mediation effect in our study. The findings indicate that work-related quality of life and job embeddedness fully mediate the association between organisational justice and job involvement, and the point estimate of the differences between the two mediators confirms that work-related quality of life and job embeddedness are no different from each other, and they mediate the relationship between organisational justice and job involvement in parallel manner. The study highlights benefit that organisations may achieve from devising policies that capitalise on organisational fairness and facilitate working factors for better employee performance amid uncertain situations and shock events such as the current pandemic. The article also discusses other managerial implications to overcome the unwanted effects of employees’ work life uncertainties.

  • Employee Gratitude: A Win-Win for the Employer and the Employee

      Authors: Athar Hameed, Muddasar Ghani Khwaja
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Stress causes serious illnesses and damages employee well-being. The mutual gains human resource management (HRM) framework places HRM practices as the custodian of employee well-being in an organisation. This study presents a mutual gains HRM framework which has three components. First, employees can perceive that their organisation enacts HRM practices from two benevolent intentions (a) to help employees perform better and b) to improve their well-being. Second, these benevolent HRM attributions invoke gratitude among employees. Third, gratitude reduces employees’ perceived stress and improves their engagement levels. Fourth, gratitude mediates the relationship between both benevolent HRM attributions, employee stress and engagement levels. Purposive sampling technique was deployed for the collection of data using structured questionnaire from 294 respondents, working in the telecommunications sector of Pakistan. Measurement and structural model validity were tested through structural equation modelling (SEM) using Mplus 7.0. The findings confirmed theoretical connotations among the constructs. The study contributes to the literature by introducing a new HRM framework mediated by gratitude to reduce employee stress levels and improve their engagement.

      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Human Resource Development (HRD) is a source of competitive advantage and a fundamental approach to achieve organisational objectives. Considering the lack of empirical pieces of evidence. A need was felt to unfold and understand the HRD dimensions adopted by the Pakistani organisations. An interview-based methodology was opted to obtain the required information. The interview’s key themes involved HRD; needs, strategies, role in managing workforce diversity, organisational development initiatives and concern for technology. The interview’s core purpose remained limited to unfold the HRD activities in line with the identified themes. The interview was concluded with challenges, future roles, and recommendations and competencies for HRD professionals in Pakistan with broader and generalised implications to the South Asian region.

  • Lost in the Perilous Boulevards of Gig Economy: Making of Human Drones

      Authors: Rajesh Gupta, Rajneesh Gupta
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Along with advancements in information technology and related infrastructure, the gig economy is expanding to more and more cities in the world. In emerging economies like India, due to increasing urbanisation and Internet connectivity, many services are being delivered through technology platforms, and their numbers are growing fast. However, not much is known about the impact of app-based employment on the workers. The online food delivery sector is a suitable segment to probe the same. How vulnerable is this ever-dispensable food delivery employee in his monotonous job' These workers are employed under the mobile apps that control them like in a sci-fi game. What does it mean to be constantly under the mobile app surveillance' Does the flexibility of the gig economy impact the skills and aspirations of these boys' Does it dehumanise the workers and transform them into human drones' This study maps the lived experience of food delivery boys and their families, which has so far remained behind the celebrated success of the platform economy in India. Using both interview and participant observation methods to study gig workers and deploying dimensional analysis to unpack the context, this study finds evidence of unobtrusive dehumanisation. Given the mushrooming trend of such gig workers, the findings of this study call for a deeper analysis of the social impact of the gig economy and have far-reaching implications.

      Authors: Subhra Pattnaik, Mousumi Padhi
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      The COVID-19 ‘new normal’ has forced organisations to reinvent business practices including rewards in order to retain and motivate employees. This article reviewed the published literature to identify the changing Total Rewards strategies adopted by firms in India as they navigated the various phases of this unprecedented pandemic. The review of academic papers as well as practitioner articles or news articles on relevant themes published in the period of 2020–2021 was followed by semi-structured interviews with 12 human resource practitioners working in the Compensation and Benefits or Total Rewards function across various organisations in India to arrive at the findings of the study. The study revealed that most firms have adopted a compassionate approach while reformulating their Total Rewards strategy. Agility, fairness and hyper-personalisation form the cornerstones for relooking at the Total Rewards dimensions such as pay, benefits, learning and development, and work environment. Spurred by the pandemic, the article highlights the endeavour of Indian firms to imbibe compassion into their Total Rewards strategies by being agile, fair and hyper-personalised. Further, it also lists potential challenges that Indian reward leaders might need to address to successfully implement and sustain a compassionate Total Rewards culture in their organisations.

      Using the tenets of the theory of planned behaviour (TPB), this study aims to investigate the role of person–organisation (P–O) fit in predicting the job-seeking intentions of university graduates in Bangladesh. There is a lack of adequate research into the theoretical phenomenon in career-related literature, especially in light of inconsistent findings for the suggested relationships under the TPB framework. This may be one of the pioneer studies that examines the role of perceived P–O fit in the association between the TPB core constructs (i.e., subjective norms, self-efficacy and attitudes) and job-seeking intentions. Based on data collected from 239 unemployed university graduates in Bangladesh, this article examines the hypothesised relationships among the study variables with structural equation modelling. The results indicated that P–O fit significantly predicted job-seeking intentions, both directly and indirectly, through the influence of attitudes. Additionally, attitudes partially mediated the association between self-efficacy and job-seeking intentions. Notably, although subjective norms could not influence job-seeking intentions, the boundary conditions of P–O fit perceptions on the relationship between subjective norms and job-seeking intentions appeared significant. Based on the findings, there is a discussion of practical implications for career counsellors and recruitment policymakers. Finally, the study’s limitations and possible research directions are highlighted.

  • The Mediating Role of Psychological Empowerment on the Transformational
           Leadership-Innovative Work Behaviour relationship: A Study of Indian
           Banking Sector

      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of the study was to examine the association between managers’ transformational leadership style and employees’ innovative work behaviour (IWB) through psychological empowerment. We employed survey methodology and collected data by administering a standardised instrument to employees (n = 203) working in public and private sector bank branches in the Delhi-NCR region of India. By applying structural equation modelling, we found that by adopting a transformational leadership style, managers can encourage employees’ IWB. Psychological empowerment partially mediated the relationship between transformational leadership and the IWB of the employees. Additionally, we found that the transformational leadership style is positively associated with the psychological empowerment of employees, and employees’ psychological empowerment is positively related to the IWB of the employees. The study practically iterates that transformational leaders can augment their employees’ innovative behaviour by empowering them.

  • Striving for Inclusion of Diverse Employees: How Important is the
           Context'

      Authors: Zunaira Saqib, Maria Khan
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Organisations are making efforts to enhance diversity and become inclusive, yet there is little agreement on what leads an organisation to become inclusive. This article explores how organisations become inclusive through certain policies, practices, and behaviours. We conducted this study on a multinational subsidiary based in Pakistan with its parent company headquartered in Europe. Single case study methodology was used along with semi-structured interviews to gather in-depth data. Our findings suggest that inclusive organisations and inclusion can be considered relative concepts based on the context. An effort to find standardised policies, practices and behaviours to create inclusive organisations may not be possible. Organisations may be considered inclusive in the context that they operate in. The study strongly demonstrates the need to further refine the concept of inclusive organisations especially in light of societal context. The study serves as a valuable point of discussion in understanding how local operating context is balanced with international transfer of human resource (HR) practices. Our study contributes to diversity and inclusion literature through discussing behavioural and procedural elements that contribute towards building an inclusive workplace in a non-western context.

  • Choose to be Optimistic, it Feels Better! The Role of Career
           Decision-making Self-efficacy on the Relationship between Boundaryless
           Career Orientation and Career Optimism

      Authors: Bilal Ahmad, Nadia Nasir
      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Drawing on the conservation of resources (CoR) theory, this study examined whether career decision-making self-efficacy (CDSE) intervenes in the association of employees’ boundaryless career orientation and career optimism. The study further sets out to assess the interactional contribution of employees’ consideration of distant future consequences—future (CFC-F) on the fore connection of employees’ CDSE and optimism. In this vein, data were collected from 211 electronic media employees through cluster sampling via an electronically administered questionnaire. SPSS 21 and SmartPLS 3.0 were used for preliminary data analyses and hypothesis testing, respectively. The results showed that CDSE significantly and positively intervened in the relationship between boundaryless career orientation and career optimism. Furthermore, the interactional effect of CFC-F was also found significant in a way that employees demonstrated a higher degree of career optimism at the higher levels of CFC-F. Hence, the premise of CoR theory that constructive resources (e.g., boundaryless career orientation) help individuals to gain other key resources (e.g., CDSE, optimism) was substantiated. Theoretical and practical implications of the study were also discussed.

      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      The sudden, rapid and ongoing outbreak of novel coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) has forced social distancing and lockdowns. Many people have already started experiencing an elevated feeling of loneliness, emotional distress, anxious and depressive thoughts related to the concerns for the disrupted social, emotional, spiritual, professional and financial wellbeing of family, friends and self. Many are feeling distressed on recurring thoughts about how long this pandemic will last, whether our family and friends will be infected and how long we will be living in this condition. Hence, the researchers of this study anticipated that the COVID-19 outbreak would be highly stressful to the people and will have psychological consequences of varying degrees. This study examines the relationship of stress, anxiety with health locus of control (HLOC) among entrepreneurs and employees serving in organisations, and the coping strategies they have adopted to overcome it. Using the quasi-experiment method, the data were collected using the perceived stress scale (PSS) and multidimensional health locus of control (MHLC) from 91 entrepreneurs and employees. The findings indicated a significant association between HLOC and stress. It was observed that respondents were aware that the current work stress is arising because of a struggle to balance personal and professional lives during the pandemic. Further, it was also observed that stress was significantly higher in employees than entrepreneurs, and HLOC types positively impacted their stress levels.

  • Conceptualisation and Validation of Multidimensional Measure of Workplace
           Spirituality

      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Workplace spirituality (WPS) has gained acknowledgement as a significant discipline in the corporate world. The dynamic environment leaves all the organisations in a quandary as to how to manage and take relevant and ethical decisions at the same time. However, despite the unprecedented challenges, organisations need to continuously stay agile, innovate for self-development and growth, and ultimately augment the wealth of the nation. It is at this time that WPS acquires utmost importance for the leaders. The research article intends to develop a scale and add new dimensions to the literature for measuring WPS from the point of view of the existing bank employees. We conducted two studies for testing the scale. For conducting Study 1, we applied exploratory factor analysis (EFA) with varimax rotation, and for Study 2, we applied second-order confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Statistics were drawn from 406 employees from banks in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR). The results showed that WPS has seven dimensions, namely, meaningfulness, compassion, gratitude, authenticity, embracing diversity, resilience and inner peace, and others’ orientation. It may be useful for managers to analyse these dimensions in detail in order to identify their impact on employee work attitudes and job outcomes. We believe that this is a pioneering wherein WPS has been represented as a second-order factor. The concluding part of this paper contains an incisive discussion on future developments in the spirituality domain.

      Abstract: South Asian Journal of Human Resources Management, Ahead of Print.
      Although researchers recommend the continuous performance evaluation of employees (CPEE), literature is scant about a procedural framework for CPEE. This article aims to develop a simple and robust method for CPEE using the modified Pugh matrix method (MPMM). The criteria for CPEE are compared pairwise using the analytical hierarchy process (AHP), followed by a comparison of employees using MPMM to determine and rank the employees based on their performance. The proposed method is successfully validated in an organisation, and the working mechanism of MPMM is demonstrated. Implications of the proposed method for CPEE and the scope for future work are also discussed.
