Poor working conditions, improper compensation system, poor management and absence of evaluation system leads to failure in retaining capable personnel which ultimately leads to failure of the organization and is a common situation that appears in many organizations. Some of the previous researchers like Ahmad and Schroeder, (2003), Delaney and Huselid, (1996), Ichniowski et al., (1997), conducted studies on HRM activities with reference to developed countries. The content of their studies mainly focused on how HRM related practices greatly affect the performance of the employees. The literature available on human resources management elaborated the role of HR practices with different set of activities.

It is found that each set of these practices have shown significant impact on the performance across all types of organizations in different countries.
