ABSTRACT

Human Resources Management is a term increasingly used to refer to the philosophy, policies, procedures and practices related to the management of an organization’s employees. The study was motivated to investigate the effect of adopting strategic human resource management practices on organizational development by focusing on the University of Nairobi. The study also sought to find out the effects of adoption of human resource information system, recruitment strategy, training and development strategy and reward strategy on organisational development in the University of Nairobi. The study adopted a descriptive research design. The study population was 94 respondents. The study used a semi structured questionnaire to collect primary data. Quantitative data was analyzed by use of inferential and descriptive statistics while qualitative data was analyzed by use of content analysis. Descriptive statistics such as means, standard deviation and frequency distribution were used to analyze the data. Data presentation was done by the use of pie charts, bar charts and graphs, percentages and frequency tables. The study established that training and development strategy was the most significant factor in influencing organizational development, followed by reward strategy, HRIS and recruitment strategy. The study also established that there is a positive relationship between HRIS, recruitment strategy, training and development strategy, recruitment strategy reward strategy and organizational development. In addition the study established that the University of Nairobi was not using human resource information system to facilitate the designing of employee reward systems. This study recommends that the University of Nairobi as well as other public universities should adopt information systems in the designing of employee reward system. The study also recommends that the University of Nairobi as well as other public universities should use external adverts for job positions either in newspapers or organization website.
