Abstract

This study examined the role of strategic human resource management to determine whether it has an impact on employee’s organisational citizen behaviour for the environment, and if so, does this impact change depending on the age of the employee. This research also examined whether the use of green human resource management practices has a positive relationship with employee’s organisational citizen behaviour for the environment. The reasoning for this research was to identify possible factors that can help organisations achieve their environmental goals.

Research carried out in China found that there is a positive relationship between strategic human resource management and employee’s organisational citizen behaviour for the environment, but there is a gap in this research on whether this relationship changes in employees depending on their age. There is also a gap in the research around the relationship between green human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment.

A scale on strategic human resource management, internal environmental orientation and organisational citizen behaviour was administered online to participants, to examine the relationship between strategic human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment, and green human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment. The demographic information gathered was then used to compare the results of participants of different ages to determine whether their age had an impact on the relationship between strategic human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment.

After analysing the results, a Spearman’s correlation detected significant positive relationship between strategic human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment. A Spearman’s correlation detected significant positive relationship between the two variables for both age groups examined, but the difference in results was not significant. A linear regression was performed to confirm that the age of an employee does not impact the relationship between strategic human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment. A Spearman’s correlation detected significant positive relationship between green human resource management and organisational citizen behaviour for the environment.
