This study provides empirical support for a seven-factor multi-item measure of High Performance Work practices using data from multiple managers working for companies in 18 different countries (N = 3,289). Reliability, generalizability, measurement equivalence, and validity were demonstrated. This measure will facilitate future research on HPWPs. We bring clarity to the field of High Performance Work Practices by creating a consistent measure that can be used across countries and cultures. We studied 3,289 managers working for companies in 18 different countries. Our results show that there are consistencies in the structure of High Performance Work Practices in different contexts. We go further to explain why these practices are effective in enhancing the performance of organizations in different contexts. This will help managers and researchers to better understand how they can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations and to close gaps between managers and researchers.
