Abstract

Drawing on the literature of three streams of management studies - human resource management (HRM), women in management and organizational effectiveness - a model was developed bringing these perspectives together into a single comprehensive framework. The model suggests positive associations between HRM practices, fairness in promotion and organizational effectiveness. A survey was conducted among 102 Israeli organizations, which represented a 44 per cent response rate. The findings indicate a significant and positive association between high-quality HRM and fairness in the promotion of women in organizations. Fairness in the promotion of women into managerial ranks was also found to be associated with higher organizational effectiveness. Implications for management and suggestions for future research are discussed.
