STRATEGIC HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES AMONG COMMERCIAL BANKS IN KENYA

The study looks at the extent of adoption of strategic human resource management practices (role
and structure of HR department, recruitment, training and development, compensation) among
the commercial banks in Kenya and further seeks to determine factors influencing their
adoption(poor communication and decision making process, poor planning of HR issues, poor
job orientations). The study conducted a survey on 43 commercial banks and analyses were
carried out by statistical means. Descriptive statistics and factor analysis were used to draw
comparisons and make conclusions. The responses yielded a variety of human resources
management variables relating to role and structure of the HRM department, recruitment, results-
oriented appraisals, participation, compensation, training and development and internal career
opportunities.
The study, thus has both academic and practical implications for HR management. From an
academic standpoint, this work contributes to the SHRM literature. While traditionally, the costs
associated with the development of SHRM have been regarded as a cost, these costs would be
better considered as an investment in capital assets. From the practitioner point of view, thisstudy is of importance to line managers, Human Resources Managers, and top management of
commercial banks in Kenya.
