Abstract:In this article the innovative behavior of employees and its relation with Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) and satisfaction with HR-practices (HRS) is investigated. Moreover an attempt has been made to get more clarity in the role of satisfaction with different types of HR-practices in this relation. Four types of HR-practices are differentiated: reward systems, employee influence, organization of work and HR flow. In the research model satisfaction with these different HR-practices are expected to act as mediators and as a moderator. The data used in this study was gathered by using a questionnaire. It was conducted within three companies (N = 151) from Germany that are active in the biomedical sector, the IT sector en the real estate sector. All three organizations can be characterized by their emphasis on innovation. The results show that LMX has a significant positive effect on innovative behavior which implicates that when the quality of LMX is high, an employee will demonstrate more innovative behavior. No direct relation was found for HRS and innovative behavior. Also the assumed mediating and moderating role of satisfaction with the four types of HR-practices were not confirmed
