Strategic Human Resource Management: Influences on Perceived Organizational Support and Job Attitudes
Glenn G. Glarino

The transformation towards Strategic Human Resource Management is a goal of most HR Departments today. This study investigated the relationship between how strategic the HR function of the firm is on job attitudes and perceived organizational support (POS) while controlling for covariates such as age, gender, job level and work tenure. Nineteen firms (180 participants) responded to questionnaires. Results showed that strategic human resource (SHR) is positively related to job attitudes namely, affective commitment (AC), sacrifice commitment (Sacrifice CC), and employee engagement (EE) while it was unrelated to alternative commitment (Alternative CC). A significant relationship was also found between SHR and POS. Finally, the study found the relationship between SHR to AC, Sacrifice CC and EE were individually mediated by POS. Implications of the findings especially in relation to designing HR activities that promote higher POS due to its mediating role with the job attitudes are discussed.
