The purpose of this current study is to examine how perceived HR practices and transformational leadership affect proactive work behaviors within the organization of high/low perceived organizational support (POS).

The data was collected by both web-based and paper-based questionnaires. 203 data were useful from employers in different industries in Taiwan. The findings reveal that POS would partially moderate the relationship between perceived HR relationship and proactive work behaviors. However, the hypothesis that transformational leadership is positively related to proactive work behaviors was not supported.

It is suggested that organization should not only focus on well-established HR practices, but also on providing considerate POS to arouse employee’s extra-role behaviors. Future research could continuingly reveal the relationship between transformational leadership and proactive work behaviors. Furthermore, how proactive behaviors benefit organization could be also extended for future research.
