Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the link between employee value proposition (EVP) dimensions, employee commitment and organisational citizenship behaviours (OCBs) in organisations.

Design/methodology/approach

This cross-sectional study collected data from 134 employees of a government department using a survey method. The collected data were analysed with a regression method using Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 24.

Findings

The regression analysis shows that perceived organisational support, and work environment (WE) influence employee commitment. Also, the relationship between organisational commitment (OC) and OCB was found to be significant. The analysis also confirms that OC mediates the relationship between the EVP variables and OCB.

Research limitations/implications

This study is cross-sectional research, future studies may adopt a longitudinal method or multi-sourced data for further research insights. Due to the adopted research design, the findings should be interpreted with this in mind.

Practical implications

This study helps to understand the impact of EVP attributes on employee commitment in organisations. The finding would benefit organisations on the need to enhance EVP fulfilment, and its benefits findings from the study show perceived organisation support and WE affects OC while OC affects OCB. It is crucial for organisations to consider and align EVP strategies in their people management strategies.

Originality/value

This study contributes to the EVP theory by analysing the role of affiliation dimension of the EVP on employee commitment. Prior research appears to have neglected the influence of the EVP on employee commitment.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between employer branding attribute of organisational support and employee retention in a government agency in New Zealand.

Design/methodology/approach

This study is cross-sectional in design, and an online survey method was used to collect data from 134 research participants. Research participants were recruited from a local council in New Zealand. The Process Macro Regression method was employed to analyse the collected data.

Findings

The main findings from this study are: first, the study shows that perceived organisational support (POS) as an employer branding technique affects employee retention. Second, POS significantly influenced employees’ organisational commitment (OC) as a predictor of employee retention. Third, the relationship between organisational support and employee retention was mediated by OC in this study.

Research limitations/implications

This study examined POS as an employer branding strategy; the findings have a number of valuable implications for organisations. This study suggests that organisations should develop adequate organisational support mechanisms as a way of acquiring the status of a better employer among different stakeholders.

Practical implications

Precisely, the findings imply that organisations should focus on increasing organisational support to attract, maintain and retain employees because employees desire conducive and favourable work environments.

Social implications

A well-crafted and efficiently implemented organisational supportive strategies may enhance the reputational status of the organisation as an employer brand among its future job applicants.

Originality/value

This study tested POS as an employer branding attribute in the New Zealand context; research on POS as an employer branding strategy is scarce. The results suggest that organisations that embrace organisational support mechanisms as employer branding strategy succeed in maintaining and retaining their talents for a longer time.

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

The results of the research paper’s conceptual model reveal that positive improvements in perceived organizational support (POS) and the work environment (WE), as elements of the employee value proposition (EVP) between employer and employee, do increase organizational commitment (OC) in employees. This in turn boosts organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) as the employee is more willing to invest their effort beyond the minimum expected level to produce innovative work for the organization’s benefit.

Originality/value

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.

Abstract

Purpose

The content of training (art-based method) and instructional strategies (blended learning) can improve business school students' creativity and attempts to determine how training can be maintained using longitudinal tracking. The study aims to answer (1) whether the incorporation of art-based methods enhances the creativity of students compared to traditional face-to-face (F2F) teaching, and (2) whether such creative training and blended teaching methods have a higher transfer of training.

Design/methodology/approach

This study adopted a two-stage design (1) it adopted a 2 × 2 (with or without art-based methods * blended teaching or F2F teaching) between-subject design of experiments with 221 participants and (2) a one-year follow-up study was conducted (participants who were employed for 6 months to one year after graduation) with 187 participants and their directors.

Findings

The results showed that the inclusion of art-based methods in the creative training of students strengthens creative ability of the students; there were no significant differences between blended and traditional learning. The authors examined the effect of transferring creative training through a questionnaire analysis of participants and employers of the participants. Self-regulated and self-directed learning positively influence motivation to transfer, which positively influences creative performance.

Originality/value

The higher the level of self-regulated and self-directed learning of students, the more effective the transfer of creative training is over time.
