Abstract

Purpose: This study aims at providing empirical evidence on the extent to which organisational commitment mediates and strengthens the relationship between human resource management practices and organisational citizenship behaviour amongst administrative staff working in Jordanian universities.

Design/methodology/approach: Data were gathered using a questionnaire. The population of the study consisted of administrative staff working at 29 universities. A total of 350 employees participated in the study. Data analysis involved the computation of descriptive statistics, as well as structural equation modelling, factor analysis, regression and correlation analysis.

Finding/results: The results of the study indicated that the human resource management practices, organisational commitment, and organisational citizenship behaviour were statistically significant. Moreover, it was found that human resource management practices through organisational commitment impact organisational citizenship behaviour.

Practical implication: The literature supports that organisational citizenship behaviour promotes the effective functioning of any organisation as well as contributing to the overall success of the organisations. Therefore, there is a need to conduct studies that concentrate on how to improve organisational citizenship behaviour so that organisations can sustain performance.

Originality/value: The conceptual model developed in this study provides relationships of human resource management practices through organisational commitment that can be used by the management of organisations as a guide to positively influence the organisational citizenship behaviour of the employees in their organisations.
