THE RESULTS FROM CHIENG’S STUDY OFFERED USEFUL INSIGHTS FOR THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF HRM PRACTICES FOR MALAYSIAN CONSTRUCTION COMPANIESChieng Heng Ping |  Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)
Study: The Mediating Effect of Organisational Commitment on the Relationship between Human Resource Management (HRM) Practices and Organisational Performance in the Malaysian Construction Industry.
Seeking to determine the impact of current human resource management practices on organisational performance and staff commitment, Chieng’s study involved front line employees in a group of 3,286 large construction companies affiliated with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB).
Chieng’s study collected 205 pockets of usable data that sought to determine the impact of HRM practices (e.g. recruitment, selection, training, compensation, performance appraisals and job design) in the industry. The findings showed that unlike other HRM practices, training and performance appraisals did not have a strong correlation with performance and organisational commitment. The results from this study offered useful insights for the future development of HRM practices for Malaysian construction companies.
