It is believed that the organization in which the human assets are more efficient, tend to achieve better results. Thus, this study seeks to assess the influence of HR practices on the performance of manufacturing organizations in India. In this study, 20 HRM practices were analysed under different heads viz. Human Resource Planning, Recruitment & Selection, Training & Development and Performance Appraisal. This is descriptive research in which a sample of 200 employees was analysed. For the testing of hypothesis, regression was used. The findings of the study reveal that HR Practices have significant impact on the effectiveness of the manufacturing units. There are some areas that need further exploration in future including the topics with more variables in case of performance of manufacturing firms.
