In an increasingly environmentally aware world, businesses are progressively obliged to mitigate harmful effects of their operations on the environment. Integrating sustainable practices with human resource management leads to environmentally aware employees. Green human resource management (GHRM) practices can be used in the recruitment process to attract quality prospective employees. A company with higher GHRM appears a more reputable and responsible employer and has higher attractiveness to candidates. They in turn have higher job pursuit intentions. This is strengthened when the candidate themselves has high environmental values and attitudes, leading to better person-organization fit, increased performance and competitor advantage.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
