Abstract

Globalization has not only helped the organizations to look for proficient employees, but also to retain the expert, talented and accomplished employees. Consequently, the role of Human Resource (HR) practices in fostering employees’ engagement, organizational practices in retaining employees and employees’ commitment is paramount. The main objective of the study is to examine, evaluate and interpret the relation between organizational HR practices and employee commitment, and to see whether these are positively or negatively correlated, as there are not many studies which examine whether there is a positive and negative relation between HR practices and employee retention in the Indian economy. About 100 employees from the Indian economy are considered. Primary as well as secondary data was collected using a questionnaire and the results are discussed in the light of the existing literature.
