ABSTRACT

Statistics indicate that persons with disabilities live in low income countries where they experience social and economic disadvantages and denial of rights. The aim of this study therefore was to establish the influence of human resource management practices on implementation of People with Disability programmes among public secondary schools in Nairobi County, Kenya. The study focused on employee selection, talent management, training and compensation on implementation of People with Disability programmes among public secondary schools in Nairobi County, Kenya. It was guided by Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory, Resource Dependency theory, Human Capital theory, and V-rooms Expectancy theory. The study conducted a census approach and targeted the 80 public secondary schools within Nairobi County. Primary data was collected by use of structured questionnaires. Descriptive statistics and inferential statistics were used for the purpose of data analysis by the use of SPSS Version 21 and MS Excel Software. The study findings indicated that employee selection, talent management and training have a positive significant influence on implementation of PWDs programmes among public secondary schools in Nairobi County, Kenya while compensation had insignificant effects. The study recommends that the public secondary schools should come up with better role alignment criteria, skill alignment criteria and employee placement policies to select competent employees who can make the process of implementation of policies in the organization easier. They should also aim to improve their current talent management practices. Furthermore, there is a need for the public secondary schools to enhance the mentorship programmes in the school, provision of more career progression opportunities and improving the on the job training practices in the school. Lastly, there is a need for the public secondary schools to come up with additional benefits and allowances internally which a different package from the one is provided by the government. In so doing, an improvement in implementation of PWD programmes among public secondary schools in Nairobi County in Kenya can be seen.

Key Words: Employee Selection, Talent Management, Training, Compensation And Implementation of People With Disability Programmes.
