Abstract
W artykule przeanalizowano relację pomiędzy Rozwojem Zasobów Ludzkich (Human Resource Development - HRD) i zaangażowaniem pracowników, którego kluczową rolę w zapewnianiu sukcesu firmom potwierdza co raz więcej wyników badań (MacLeod i Clarke, 2009). Celem HRD jest stworzenie środowiska pracy, które pozwoli pracownikom na wykorzystanie ich pełnego potencjału oraz umożliwi osiąganie lepszych rezultatów (performance). Wyniki badań pokazują jednak, że zaangażowanie pracowników jest mediatorem wpływu HRD na wyniki i efektywność zachowań w pracy. Działania rozwijające potencjał pracowników jednocześnie budują zaangażowanie, które prowadzi do korzystnych zachowań pracowników. Aby potwierdzić rolę zaangażowania pracowników jako mediatora autorzy przeanalizowali wyniki badań z projektu (Engagement Barometer)®, pochodzące z trzech firm produkcyjnych działających w Polsce (łącznie 905 uczestników). (abstrakt oryginalny)

This article explores the link between Human Resource Development (HRD) and employee engagement (EE), which according to a growing body of evidence is necessary for companies to thrive (MacLeod and Clarke, 2009). The aim of HRD is to create a workplace environment that allows the use of an employee's full potential as well as increases performance. However, research suggests that EE mediates the effect of HRD on performance, as it is HRD processes that drive employee engagement. This leads to beneficial behavior on the part of employees. To confirm the mediating effect of EE, the authors have selected sample results from the Barometr Zaangażowania® project (Engagement Barometer) that came from three manufacturing companies located in Poland (a total of 905 participants).
