    Abstract

    Focusing on Chinese migrant workers, our paper aims to bridge human resources management (HRM) literature and social identity literature by exploring possible sources of employees differences in their experiences of Human Resource (HR) practices and ultimately their work attitudes. Based on a dataset comprising 133 firms and 2, 225 migrant workers, we found that (1) employees perceived HR practices mediated the relationship between firm intended HR practices and employee job satisfaction and affective commitment; (2) that migrant workers social identities had a direct impact on their perceptions of HR practices; and (3) that their social identities moderated the relationship between firm intended HR practices and their own perceptions. Important theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
