Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships among human resource development (HRD) efforts, top management support, and employees' attitudes (job satisfaction and organizational commitment) in the Korean context. Based on the Korean Human Capital Corporate Panel survey data, 3,899 responses from 159 large companies were analyzed by adopting hierarchical multiple regression analysis and a regression-based path analysis. The results indicated that HRD efforts positively affected organizational commitment through job satisfaction. In addition, job satisfaction had a moderated mediation effect on the interaction of HRD efforts and top management support on organization commitment. Finally, top management support moderates the relationship between HRD efforts and employees' attitudes such that increased top management support for HRD efforts improves employees' job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
