The moderating influence of HR operational autonomy on the entrepreneurial orientation-performance link in franchise systems
Dada, Olufunmilola (Lola)
This study investigates the concept of HR Operational Autonomy, i.e., the freedom a franchisor offers to franchisees throughout the system with regards to their creation of HR practices. It is shown to have a significant positive moderating effect on the EO-performance link among UK franchise systems, explaining over 20 % of the variance in performance outcomes. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
