Positive Employee Attitudes: How Much Human Resource Management Do You Need?

We propose a selective view of HRM that is guided by work motivation theory, arguing that one of the means by which firms achieve higher performance is by investing in certain forms of HRM practice that help fulfill intrinsic work values and thereby influence employees' attitudes to their jobs and to the firm in a positive direction. Additionally, an accumulation of complementary practices has important communicative functions that intensify positive employee attitudes.
