Abstract: Drawing on social capital theory, social exchange perspective and organizational support theory, the study proposes that ‘familiness’ can be utilized to enhance employees’ organizational commitment. It examines a family business’s practices of embedding it through corporate culture, reward and compensation, training and development and socialization. Using focus groups, interviews and a review of organizational documents in a single case study in China, it argues that family firms can gain comparative advantage by embedding such familiness in their human resource management practices. Decent work conditions, career development and a corporate culture that integrates employees into a large community, it concludes, maybe helpful in attracting and retaining the new generation of migrant workers.
