Overview

Human Resource Strategic Orientation presents empirical findings on the linkage between the soft and hard human resource strategic orientations, firm performance and three components of organizational commitment namely: affective, continuance and normative. While previous studies have focused on the relationship between human resource practices and firm performance, they have failed to consider the different types of human resource strategic orientations. Existing literature reveals limited empirical studies in Sub-Saharan Africa and Kenya in particular. This book, therefore, extends Meyer and Allen's (1991) multidimensional conceptualization of organizational commitment and Storey's (1987) soft and hard orientations of HRM to a non-Western context. The results show varied relationships obtained from tests of twenty six hypotheses. Students pursuing undergraduate degrees in business and postgraduates studying MBA and doctoral students in HRM will find this book a useful resource. It contains a list of references for further study and methodology for carrying out research.
