Abstract

This study critically reviewed relevant literature in search of strategic human resource development (SHRD) with the aim of exploring SHRD components and the influence of SHRD to employee performance. It also focuses on the investigation of the role of employee commitment as a mediator from employees of Thailand’s State Owned Enterprises listed companies. The findings were presented by descriptive and inferential statistics and the Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was examined by structural equation modelling using AMOS.

The results of the study from 232 respondents demonstrated that SHRD had a positive effect on employee performance. Given the influential variables of SHRD components, strategic capability development was the most influential in the developmental context, while supervisor involvement was the most influential in the organizational context. Significantly, employee commitment was found to play partially a mediating role in the relationship between SHRD and employee performance of the State Owned Enterprises. Suggestions from this study pointed out that investing in SHRD of the organization contributing to effective employee performance should be carried out in parallel with imbuing employees with high commitment to the organization.
