Abstract

Focusing on Chinese migrant workers, our paper aims to bridge human resources management (HRM) literature and social identity literature by exploring possible sources of employees�� differences in their experiences of Human Resource (HR) practices and ultimately their work attitudes. Based on a dataset comprising 133 firms and 2, 225 migrant workers, we found that (1) employees�� perceived HR practices mediated the relationship between firm intended HR practices and employee job satisfaction and affective commitment; (2) that migrant workers�� social identities had a direct impact on their perceptions of HR practices; and (3) that their social identities moderated the relationship between firm intended HR practices and their own perceptions. Important theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
