Abstract

The current study discusses the significance of High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs) and analyses its relevance to employee engagement and performance in Nigeria. Hotel employees with different background are interviewed and their views thematically analysed. Findings show that when employees feel more engaged with their jobs, they are more likely to support HPWPs, recognizing its importance and demonstrating creative performance. The relationship between HPWPs and performance outcomes is strengthened by managerial trust in employees’ capability and appreciation for work done. Research findings offer unique understanding of HPWPs and clarify its application efficiency in the hospitality industry. Implications are discussed.
