|Samenvatting||In this thesis the relationship between HRM, performance and well-being is examined. A distinction is made between two types of HRM, productivity HRM and commitment HRM. The goal of a commitment HRM system is to develop employees and commit them to the organisation. Productivity HRM is focused on short-term results and performance (Lepak and Snell, 2002). This study researches the effects of these two systems on performance and well-being. Performance is measured via in-role performance and compliance and employee well-being is accessed via job satisfaction, affective organisational commitment and strain. |
The results of this study show that productivity HRM has a positive relationship with compliance and job strain. Thus, compliance and strain are higher in an organisation that has implemented productivity HRM practices. Productivity HRM is not associated with in-role performance, job satisfaction and commitment. Commitment HRM is positively associated with commitment. Moreover, commitment HRM practices do not increase strain. Unfortunately, the hypothesised performance effects of commitment HRM were not found.
The results of this study indicate that there are different types of HRM which have different effects. Productivity HRM seems to increases performance but has a negative effect on well-being and commitment HRM has a positive effect on well-being but does not increase performance. These results support the trade-off theory and indicate that an HRM system aimed at improving performance does not improve employee well-being.
