Impact of Green Human Resource Management on Eco-Friendly Behavior, Organizational Commitment, and Environmental Performance of Hotel Employees in Pakistan
The Green Human Resource Management has least been explored especially in the context of Pakistan’s hotel industry. The instant research explored the relationship of Green Human Resource Management with employees’ commitment, employees’ eco-friendly behavior and overall organizational performance for Pakistan’s hotel industry. The hotels situated in Lahore were systematically selected and data was collected on structured questionnaire from top, middle and lower management of these hotels. Data was analyzed by employing Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM). The results showed that the Green Human Resource Management exerted positive effect on Employees’ Organizational Commitment and Hotels’ Environmental Performance but did not affect Employees Eco-friendly Behavior. Therefore, hotel management in Pakistan should look for potential candidates at the time of recruitment who cherished environmental practices. Further, a significant mediating role of employees’ eco-friendly behavior was observed to be existed directly and indirectly for the relationship between Hotels’ Environmental Performance and Green Human Resource Management. It is suggested that appropriate reward mechanism is required to instill eco-friendly behavior in the hotel employees of Pakistan.
