Park, Yu Kyoung; Song, Ji Hoon; Yoon, Seung Won; Kim, Jungwoo
European Journal of Training and Development, v38 n1-2 p75-94 2014
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the mediating effect of work engagement on the relationship between learning organization and innovative behavior. Design/methodology/approach: This study used surveys as a data collection tool and implemented structural equation modeling for empirically testing the proposed research model. Findings: The study found that learning organization culture makes a direct and indirect impact on employees ' innovative work behaviors. Results from hierarchical multiple regressions and structural equation modeling supported that work engagement fully mediates the relationship between the learning organization and innovative work behaviors. Practical implications: HRD practitioners can develop effective interventions to enhance their employees' innovative behavior by devoting efforts to create a workplace that promotes collaborative learning culture and work engagement. Originality/value: This study is valuable to HRD specialists interested in developing effective interventions that encourage employees to engage in innovative behavior.
