Abstract

In this study we explored the effects of human resource diversity management (HRDM) on organizational citizenship behaviour (OCB). The data for this study were collected from 530 Chinese employees in a range of industries. The results of our study indicate that overall, HRDM is positively related to OCB. We found that compensation diversity management is the strongest predictor of OCB. Recruitment and selection diversity management is also significantly associated with OCB. Our hypotheses regarding the relationship between training and development and performance appraisal diversity management with OCB were not supported. Results of our study indicate that the link between diversity management in specific HRM functions and OCB may epend on the focus of HR diversity management in a particular national context. This focus appears to be guided by salient Chinese specific diversity issues and the characteristics of the Confucian HRM.
