A Study on Impact of Hr Strategies on Employee Performance in Abu Dhabi Distribution Company
In any organization HRM has to object on ensuring and achieving "return on investments" and this can be maximized by effective utilization of skilled and un-skilled manpower. Here it is also important to consider the financial risks that should be kept at minimum levels (Coyle-Shapiro Shore, 2007). It is stated that (Wilkinson and Ackers, 2001) commitment of employees and their attitude towards the work changes from time to time in the organization. So it is the HRM who has to look forward for planning and implementing effective HR strategies so as to increase employee performance. Thus aim of the research is to study the employee perceptions on HR strategies of ADDC. Objectives of the study include identifying the various HR strategies implemented by the organization, identifying the organization's human resources systems, policies and practices, study the impact of these policies and practices on employees and finally put forward few recommendations based on the analysis of the results. Research results show that most employees are not been rewarded for their performance and most employees are unaware of the performance appraisal system, there is a need to revise and focus on promotion and reward policies and as most employees are not happy with their benefits like compensation. Thus it is recommended that the more the appraisals and rewards the more will be the employee commitment. In other words it can be said that ADDC can further boost their employee performance through revising the current salaries, giving rewards for better performance, promoting employees who perform their job well.
