Role of the HR environment on talent growth: an empirical study of industrial clusters in China

Role of the HR environment on talent growth: an empirical study of industrial clusters in China Purpose – In order to reveal why there are favorable growing environments in industrial clusters (IC), the author examines the effects of the HR environment on talent growth from five aspects: industrial clusters economy (ICE), industrial clusters HR policy (ICHRP), industrial clusters living setting (ICLS), industrial clusters culture (ICC) and industrial clusters HR management (ICHRM). Design/methodology/approach – The sample for this study came from four IC in China. Exploratory factor analysis and SEM analyses were conducted to analyze data. Findings – It proved that: the economy of ICE has a positive direct impact on the talent growth in the clusters; ICHRP has a positive direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; ICC does not have a direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; ICLS has a positive direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; the HRM of companies in IC has a positive direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; the culture and ICHRP has a positive direct impact on the HRM of companies in the clusters. Originality/value – The paper helps to reveal why talent grows better in IC than in other regions. It offers theoretic support for government to set HR policy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Chinese Management Studies Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – In order to reveal why there are favorable growing environments in industrial clusters (IC), the author examines the effects of the HR environment on talent growth from five aspects: industrial clusters economy (ICE), industrial clusters HR policy (ICHRP), industrial clusters living setting (ICLS), industrial clusters culture (ICC) and industrial clusters HR management (ICHRM). Design/methodology/approach – The sample for this study came from four IC in China. Exploratory factor analysis and SEM analyses were conducted to analyze data. Findings – It proved that: the economy of ICE has a positive direct impact on the talent growth in the clusters; ICHRP has a positive direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; ICC does not have a direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; ICLS has a positive direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; the HRM of companies in IC has a positive direct impact on talent growth in the clusters; the culture and ICHRP has a positive direct impact on the HRM of companies in the clusters. Originality/value – The paper helps to reveal why talent grows better in IC than in other regions. It offers theoretic support for government to set HR policy.
