Purpose: The current study aims to investigate the role of green human resource management (GHRM, i.e., green competence building, green motivation enhancement, and green employee involvement) practices in enhancing employee environmental performance in the health care sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Design/methodology/approach: The data were collected from hospital staff (N=350) working in different private and public hospitals of China. Structural equational modelling–partial least squares (PLS–SEM) modelling was used to test the proposed model based on the respondents' data.
Findings: The study results support the relationship between GHRM practices and environmental performance directly and through employees' green attitudes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study results also extend this support to the negative moderating role of perceived personal inconvenience on the relationship between GHRM practices and environmental performance.
Keywords: Health care, COVID-19, GHRM practices, Green employee attitude, Perceived personal inconvenience, Environmental performance.
