Green Human Resource Management Practices: A Study on The Banking Sector of Pakistan
Keywords:Green Recruitment and Selection, Green Training and Development, Green Reward and Compensation, Green Performance Management, Green Employee Involvement, Environmental Sustainability
This study focuses on the importance of Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) practices in managing environmental concerns. We collected data from 204 respondents across seven sample banks using a semi-structured questionnaire and analyzed it using the SPSS software. Our findings suggest that although all selected banks are aware of ecological issues and try to implement green practices in their regular activities, few have a formal green policy. We also identified challenges organizations face in implementing GHRM practices, including outdated technology, high initial investment, ineffective policies, lack of community and government support, and a general lack of environmental consciousness. Our study highlights the vital role of the human resource department in creating a green workplace that influences green recruitment and selection, green training and development, green reward and compensation, green performance management, green employee involvement, and environmental sustainability.
