Abstract

Research on values has provided significant insights at individual, organizational and societal levels of analysis. One area that remains under-explored is how the individual values of managers influence decision-making on human resource (HR) issues. This article explores this relationship between the individual values of managers and HR decision-making by drawing on data collected from Canadian and Irish line managers. Questionnaire data was collected from a total of 340 managers. Results provide modest support for the proposed model in that capability values were shown to be a significant positive predictor of the importance of health and safety, and peace values were a significant positive predictor of the importance of employment equity. The findings emphasise the need to simultaneously examine both individual values and organisational factors as predictors of human resource decision-making
