Abstract


The present era of knowledge-based economy has posed immense challenge before organisations, particularly academic institutions, to identify the talent and potential of their human resource for developing them as knowledge workers. Keeping this in view, the present study is aimed to examine the perception of respondents towards HR practices prevailing in sample select institutions. The present study targeted 120 teaching personnel from five constituent colleges of Cluster University Srinagar. Simple random sampling technique was employed to gather information from the respondents. The data whatsoever collected were analysed using SPSS 20 version. The findings of the study depicted that respondents showed favourable satisfaction level towards HR practices. The findings of the study suggest that HR practices in sample institutions need to be further enriched and improved so that they will help in developing human capital which would eventually result in better institutional performance.
