Abstract:The link between HR practices and affective commitment is widely accepted by theorists, but the specifics of how they are connected are still weakly grounded. Theorists find differing results when empirically testing similar grounds, suggesting there are conditions that moderate this relationship that are yet to be determined. Through a combination of theories and ideologies including self-determination theory, need satisfaction, Service-dominant logic and Intellectual capital (IC), this paper attempts to answer the research question “What Employee level variables moderate the positive relationship between HR practices and affective commitment?” 4 hypotheses of moderating variables that attribute to the relationship at hand are proposed, drawing from IC theory resource typologies; Human capital, Organizational capital and Social capital, and a model is created to present their placement in the chain between HR practices and Affective commitment. The implications, limitations and opportunities further research are discussed.
