Abstract

Knowledge sharing has been shown to be beneficial for organizational development, but as a private behavior, it is not considered to occur spontaneously. To explore the antecedents of knowledge sharing, this study examines the influence of high-performance human resource on knowledge sharing behavior. To address this problem, the mediating roles of organizational commitment and organizational citizenship behavior and the moderating role of transformational leadership are conducted in the relationship between high-performance human resource and knowledge sharing. Based on 448 survey questionnaires from employees across various industries, the results indicate that high-performance human resource is positively related to knowledge sharing, and organizational commitment and organizational citizenship behavior could take positive mediating effects respectively. In addition, organizational commitment and organizational citizenship behavior sequentially mediate the relationship between high-performance human resource and knowledge sharing. Moreover, transformational leadership strengthens the effects of high-performance human resource on organizational commitment and organizational citizenship behavior, respectively.
