Perceived Financial Sustainability of Tourism Enterprises: Do Green Human Resource Management Practices Really Matter?
Dr. Tareq Hasan Abdeen, Dr. Nagla Harb Sayed Ahmed

Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) and Perceived Financial Sustainability (PFS) are two topics that seem important to the tourism and hospitality industry in Egypt. Green management, in general, and GHRM, in particular, and its relationship with PFS remain relatively underexplored. This research examines the relationship between GHRM and PFS in a selection of tourism and hospitality enterprises in Egypt. It uses the most commonly used four dimensions of GHRM; these are: green recruitment and selection, green training and development, green performance management; and green reward and pay. A survey was conducted on a non-random ―purposive‖ sample of enterprises within the tourism and hospitality industry in Egypt. The findings of this research show that GHRM, in general, enhances managers’ perception of financial sustainability. The results also reveal that both green training and development and green performance management are positively and significantly related with PFS, while green recruitment and selection and green reward and pay are not significantly related with PFS. The paper concludes with suggestions for managers of tourism and hospitality enterprises in Egypt and for future researches.
