The Impact of Behavioral Organization Development Interventions on Employee Development and Organizational Performance. A Mixed Methods Approach
Keywords:Organization Development, Organizational Performance, OD Interventions, Employee Development
Corporate planners have found that organisational performance (OP) presents a significant strategic challenge and complication. They are looking for solutions to the problem of how to maintain their competitiveness in the global market while establishing a strategic position. Organizational development (OD) interventions provide solutions to these challenges and complications. We employed the mixed-methods explanatory sequential design and tested the effects of seven OD behavioral interventions on OP, including coaching, reward systems (RS), career development plans (CDP), financial assistance program (FAP), pay systems (PS), and training and development (T&D). The aim of this study was to support corporate planners and practitioners. We defined the OP as growth in financial performance (FP) (G). We employed employee development (knowledge, skills, and abilities) as a mediator. We sent 800 (sample size) questionnaires to HR heads, and 762 completed ones were returned. We use a stratified random probability sampling method to choose a sample of 800 firms from the population, which is all listed firms with the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP). We employed SPSS Version 20 to perform regression analysis. We calculated coefficient β values, t- and p-values, adjusted R2, and F-statistic values were computed and determine the causal influence. We conducted mediation analysis the four-step method proposed by Baron and Kenny (1986). Goodman and Sobel Preacher and Leonardelli (2001) used a web-based technique to conduct tests to confirm the mediations among variables. We conducted a focus group of ten OD professionals to gather qualitative data, conducted thematic analysis then merged the data to obtain insightful findings. The findings are valuable for OD practitioners and the study is a step towards a Green-OD Community.
