During the past three decades scholars have made a tremendous effort to study the relationship between High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs) and organizational performance. But comparatively scholars have paid less attention to establish the relationship between HPWPs and various attitudes and behaviors of employees. This paper provides comprehensive review on various types of HPWPs and its link with improving Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) via mediating organizational justice and organizational commitment. The main objective of this paper is to explain how to improve OCB of employees by adopting various HPWPs via mediating organizational justice and organizational commitment. Finally, the paper presents a comprehensive framework which shows the mediating role of organizational justice, organizational commitment between HPWPs, and OCB. This paper provides further insight, for people who are responsible in handling employees as human resources managers of organizations, on HR practices contribute to high individual level and organizational level outcomes.

Abstract


During the past three decades scholars have made a tremendous effort to study the relationship between High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs) and organizational performance. But comparatively scholars have paid less attention to establish the relationship between HPWPs and various attitudes and behaviors of employees. This paper provides comprehensive review on various types of HPWPs and its link with improving Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) via mediating organizational justice and organizational commitment. The main objective of this paper is to explain how to improve OCB of employees by adopting various HPWPs via mediating organizational justice and organizational commitment. Finally, the paper presents a comprehensive framework which shows the mediating role of organizational justice, organizational commitment between HPWPs, and OCB. This paper provides further insight, for people who are responsible in handling employees as human resources managers of organizations, on HR practices contribute to high individual level and organizational level outcomes.
