A high performance work practice scale: Validity and invariance across five cultures

Gabriela L Flores, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

In this study, a comprehensive high performance work practice (HPWP) model is developed from an existing taxonomy of HPWPs. Using data collected in organizations across seventeen countries, the model is evaluated for equivalence across five cultures and two economic groups. Findings support the generalizability of the seven factor model across these contexts. Finally, the model is evaluated within a larger network of theoretically related antecedents and outcomes. Specifically, the behavioral perspective of HR and the resource based view are used to develop hypotheses relating the use of HPWPs to strategy and organizational resources. ^
