Linking Service-oriented High-Performance Work Practices Bundle with Person-job Fit, Person Organization Fit and Affective Commitment: A Parallel Mediation Analysis
Keywords:High-Performance Work Practices, Person-Job Fit, Person-Organization Fit and Affective Commitment, Telecom Sector
Affective commitment, having diverse perspectives, is a challenge of the day. The study examines the effect of high-performance work practices (HPWP) on Affective commitment in the Telecom sector of Pakistan through the mediating role of Person-job fit, and Person-organization fit between HPWP and Affective commitment. The study framework strengthens from the Theory of Work Adjustment (Afshan & Motwani) and the Social exchange theory (SET). The purposive sampling technique used 350 questionnaires distributed among employees and 290 returned. Findings show an insignificant direct relationship between HPWP [Career development, Training and development, and Performance appraisal] and Affective commitment. Whereas person-job fit and person-organization fit fully mediate the association among high-performance work practices with Affective commitment.
