Previous authors have used laboratory experiments and public opinion surveys to examine attitudes toward equal employment opportunity and affirmative action (EEO/AA) programs. This study adds a level of specificity to this research by examining attitudes toward the actual human resource management (HRM) practices comprising organizational EEO/AA programs. EEO/AA-related HRM practices were identified in in-depth interviews. Line managers in four organizaions (n = 242) responded to a survey asking them to express their attitudes toward 26 EEO/AA-related HRM practices and to indicate their level of organizational commitment and perceived career opportunities with the company. Findings indicated that although demographic groups differed in their attitudes, all demographic groups expressed neutral to positive attitudes toward EEO/AA-related HRM practices. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Group & Organization Management: An International Journal SAGE

Abstract

Previous authors have used laboratory experiments and public opinion surveys to examine attitudes toward equal employment opportunity and affirmative action (EEO/AA) programs. This study adds a level of specificity to this research by examining attitudes toward the actual human resource management (HRM) practices comprising organizational EEO/AA programs. EEO/AA-related HRM practices were identified in in-depth interviews. Line managers in four organizaions (n = 242) responded to a survey asking them to express their attitudes toward 26 EEO/AA-related HRM practices and to indicate their level of organizational commitment and perceived career opportunities with the company. Findings indicated that although demographic groups differed in their attitudes, all demographic groups expressed neutral to positive attitudes toward EEO/AA-related HRM practices.
