Impact of Green Human Resource Management on Employee Behaviour


Ali Halawi, Ph.D. and Wael Zaraket, D.B.A.


An organization’s role is gaining more importance than ever before due to the challenges facing the stakeholders to whom such organizations appeal. When the power structure of the community is highly respected and the approach of the organization becomes more stakeholder-centered, the negative externalities and societal challenges can be lessened. Such negative externalities and societal challenges are abundant in Lebanon, which requires assessing the Green responsibility of Lebanese private companies in preparing their employees to combat these challenges and in appealing to the stakeholders. This study argued that Lebanese private companies can acquire an edge when adopting high Green responsible human resources management, especially in the presence of hyper competition which characterizes many industries. Green responsibility of Lebanese private companies is perceived within the human resource frame via its influence on retaining the employees and creating a noble cause for them. This study attempted to explore the stance of Lebanese companies regarding Green human resources responsibility, seeking to provide simplified general reflections of Green HRM on employee work behavior through taking a model of two Lebanese companies representing diverse industries (A university and a bank).
