Abstract

Using the theoretical framework of Guest and Conway (1997), this paper aims to establish the applicability and impact of 'Best Human Resource Management Practices' (BHRMP) on employees' attitudes and behaviors. The research used a questionnaire survey in three leading shipping companies of Cyprus. Analyses examine the association between the BHRMP and the variables of work time period, nature of job contract, and male employees; and between BHRMP and psychological contract, employee commitment and motivation. The findings confirm the applicability of the framework in the Cypriot context and the existence of a positive association between employees' experience of a high number of 'best HRM practices' and psychological contract, higher motivation and commitment levels.
