Quotation Pernkopf-Konhäusner, Katharina. 2011. Adding content to HRM system strength: A conventionalist perspective. 2011 Academy of Management Annual Meeting, San Antonio, Vereinigte Staaten/USA, 12.08.-16.08..




HR scholars have recently pointed out the climate strength as a relevant mediator for understanding the HRM-performance linkage. However, previous work remained relatively silent about the content features of climate strength. This paper introduces a conventionalist perspective to elaborate on content and align it with the HRM system strength construct (Bowen & Ostroff, 2004). It is suggested that the conventionalist perspective, using Boltanski and Thévenot's (2006) "orders of worth" framework, is useful to shed light on the variety of HRM system content in an organization, thus also helping HR managers to develop appropriate content of HRM systems.
