Abstract

Previous studies examining the relationship between Human Capital Management (HCM) practices and organisational performance are mostly conducted in the West and adapted in this country to study the relationship on private sector. Unfortunately, there is a wide gap on study examining the performance of the agro-based government agencies whose dual roles are socio-economic and commercial functions. Various questions have enormous implication to the survival of agro based government agency, and yet have not been fully addressed by existing research. This dissertation examines the relationship between HCM practices and human capability on organisational performance in agro based government agency in Sabah. The goal is to measure the relationship of four domains of HCM practices (employee relations, manpower planning, job security and compensation) and human capability on organisational performance. This study also examines the significant of organization age as moderator for HCM practices and human capability on organisational performance. A total of 122 usable questionnaires were collected using cross-sectional survey in the agro-based government agencies under the Sabah Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry between March 2010 and April 2010. Results of multiple regression indicated that HCM practices has no significant relationship with organisational performance, but human capability indicated a positive relationship with organisational performance. The hierarchical regression result showed that age of the organization does not moderate the relationship between human capability and organisational performance. The findings can form the basis for useful recommendations for agrobased government agencies managers in encouraging the practice of HCM who are concerned with maintaining their competitive advantage for long-term organizational success.
