On SAGE Insight: How to retain motivated employees in their jobs?

From Economic and Industrial Democracy

This article examines the contribution of human resource management (HRM) and information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the retention of motivated employees. The purpose of this article is to provide new evidence on on-the-job search of employees, especially motivated ones, by analysing the role of HRM practices and associated ICTs. The author uses a representative random sample of private sector employees from Western Europe. It combines various fields of research, i.e. human resource management, organizational psychology, labour, behavioural and personnel economics. The research provides new results on employees working in a service economy and covers not only Luxembourgish employees but also French, Belgian, German and some other nationalities.

Abstract

This article examines the contribution of human resource management (HRM) and information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the retention of motivated employees. The author uses a representative random sample of private sector employees from Western Europe. The data set contains information on employees’ motivations, on-the-job search and workplace environment.

The results show that HRM and ICT bundles are positively related to motivations. Being motivated for intrinsic and personal growth reasons decreases the likelihood to search while being motivated for rewards or compulsion reasons increases it. HRM strengthens the likelihood to search in the same way, while ICTs tend to increase the likelihood to search of all employees.
