We examined the relationships between green human resource management practices, organizational identification, and green citizenship behaviors in the hotel industry. Our framework comprised 5 dimensions of green human resource management practices: green recruitment, green training, green performance management, green reward, and green involvement. We predicted that each dimension would positively influence frontline employees’ organizational identification, and, in turn, their green organizational citizenship behaviors of eco-initiatives, eco-civic engagement, and eco-helping. Participants were 426 frontline employees working in Taiwanese hotels. Consistent with our predictions, each of the 5 green human resource management practices had a positive influence on organizational identification, which then positively affected green organizational citizenship behavior. Moreover, green human resource management practices enhanced employees’ green organizational citizenship behavior, and organizational identification was an effective mediator of the relationship between green human resource management practices and green organizational citizenship behavior. Practical and theoretical implications of the findings are discussed.
