Work Practices to Augment Employees’ Performance Oriented Behaviors?
We examine the relationship between high performance work practices and employee performance mediated by employee involvement, motivation, and satisfaction. We collected data on adapted scales from 292 heads of departments of various public and private sector institutions from Pakistan. The results indicated a positive and significant impact of high performance work practices on employee involvement, motivation, satisfaction, and performance. Besides, results also supported the mediation of employee involvement and motivation. However, the relationship between employee satisfaction and performance was not found significant and similarly, its mediation was also not established as we expected. The study is first of its kind, where a composite model of high performance work practices was tested for its employee-related outcomes. Moreover, the mediation of employee involvement and employee motivation in the relationship between high performance work practices and employee performance is also a noteworthy contribution of the current research in the Pakistani context. The results are generalizable to public and private sector higher education institutions of Pakistan but can also be used in other organizations with caution.
