Influence of HRM Practices on Organizational Commitment: A Study among Software Professionals in India
Paul, A. K.; Anantharaman, R. N.
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v15 n1 p77-88 Spr 2004
Although organizational commitment has been discussed frequently in organizational psychology for almost four decades, few studies have involved software professionals. A study in India reveals that HRM practices such as employee-friendly work environment, career development, development oriented appraisal, and comprehensive training show a significant positive relationship with organizational commitment. The study's results emphasize the role of such HRD variables as inculcating and enhancing organizational commitment, and suggest that HRD practitioners and researchers should further develop commitment-oriented organization policies.
