Abstract: The current study addressed the effect of electronic-human resource management (e-HRM) as a moderating variable on training practices and employee-level performance relationship, as guided by the contingency theory and social exchange theory in the context of a developing country. Through the application of a self-administrated questionnaire, data were collected from respondents (n = 592) operating in the private sector of Jordan. Notably, structural equation modelling (SEM) with smart partial least square (PLS) was applied; the results confirmed the hypothesised model, as training practices and e-HRM use significantly affect employee performance. Further, e-HRM was seen to significantly moderate the relationship. In addition, discussion for the implications, direction and suggestions for the future body of literature were introduced.

Keywords: training practices; employee performance; electronic-human resource management; e-HRM; moderating; private sector; Jordan.
