Abstract

Human resource management (HRM) consultants have a paramount role in solving current company problems, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They are professionals who work for HRM consulting firms. This research aims to investigate the positive effects of sustainable leadership styles and HRM practices on consultant job satisfaction and performance in firms in Indonesia. We standardized and tested seven hypotheses and engaged the Snowball sampling method for collecting primary data. Then, we sent a self-report questionnaire with 27 items to respondents. Four hundred consultants are the target respondents in cross-sectional data collection from the beginning of January to the beginning of February 2022. The confirmatory factor analysis has produced valid and reliable items in total. The goodness of fit test has issued a fit model. Hence, first, the chief executive officers’ (CEOs) sustainable leadership styles and HRM practices positively affect consultant job satisfaction. Second, consultant job satisfaction positively affects consultant performance. Therefore, sustainable leadership styles and sustainable HRM practices are independent variables. Job satisfaction is the mediating one.
