This book explores how Chinese enterprises implement green human resource management (green HRM), and how it affects employee green and non-green work behaviors through multiple underlying mechanisms and depends on individual green values and perceived organizational support.

The authors provide useful insight into green HRM practices and policies that are adopted by firms, why firms have chosen to adopt them, and how green HRM influences employee green and non-green workplace behaviors. To achieve this, the book applies several theories to develop a testable research framework, which has been empirically tested by utilizing qualitative and quantitative research methods.

This book will appeal to anyone interested in learning more about green HRM practices and the social and psychological processes through which green HRM influences employee workplace behaviors, and has significant implications for using HRM to implement organizational green initiatives.
