Learning organization and innovative behavior The mediating effect of work engagement

Learning organization and innovative behavior The mediating effect of work engagement Purpose – The purpose of this study is to investigate the mediating effect of work engagement on the relationship between learning organization and innovative behavior. Design/methodology/approach – This study used surveys as a data collection tool and implemented structural equation modeling for empirically testing the proposed research model. Findings – The study found that learning organization culture makes a direct and indirect impact on employees' innovative work behaviors. Results from hierarchical multiple regressions and structural equation modeling supported that work engagement fully mediates the relationship between the learning organization and innovative work behaviors. Practical implications – HRD practitioners can develop effective interventions to enhance their employees' innovative behavior by devoting efforts to create a workplace that promotes collaborative learning culture and work engagement. Originality/value – This study is valuable to HRD specialists interested in developing effective interventions that encourage employees to engage in innovative behavior. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Training and Development Emerald Publishing

Design/methodology/approach – This study used surveys as a data collection tool and implemented structural equation modeling for empirically testing the proposed research model. Findings – The study found that learning organization culture makes a direct and indirect impact on employees' innovative work behaviors. Results from hierarchical multiple regressions and structural equation modeling supported that work engagement fully mediates the relationship between the learning organization and innovative work behaviors. Practical implications – HRD practitioners can develop effective interventions to enhance their employees' innovative behavior by devoting efforts to create a workplace that promotes collaborative learning culture and work engagement.
