This. research looked at the impact of HRM practices on organisational perfonnance in
· the case of some rural banks in the Ashanti region of Ghana. Research over the years, has
established significantly a positive correlation between HR practices and organisational
performance. The assumption underpin.rung the practice of HRM is that people are the
organisation's key resource and organisational performance largely depends on them.
Therefore, if an appropriate range of HR policies and processes are developed. and
·implemented effectively, HR wiU make a substantial impact- on. organisational
performance. However, the · majority of the cold. The objectives of the study were to
examine the general HR · practices and programmes of the rural banks, evaluate the
perceptions of employees on HR practices and programmes of the rural banks and
establish the impact of properly managing hum.an resources on the perfonnance of these
rural banks. This study surveyed four branches each of four rural bank.s with total
respondents of 150 made up of 40 managerial employees and 110 non-managerial
eriiploy~es. The re~ponse rate was 98.66% ~hich represented 40. managerial employees
· and 108 non-managerial employees. The study employed two sets · of 8 and 10 HR
practices categorised questionnaires for managers and employees respectively. Purposive
and convenience sampling techniques were applied to managers and employees
respectively. The findings of the study revealed that HR practices are improperly planned;
implemented and managed by non-HR experts and that the practices,. pr9gran1mes arid
policies of these rural banks are lowly perceived by their employees. The· study also
showed that ·the en6nnous benefits of properly managing human resources are lost to
these rural banks. It was recommended that rural banks should dedicate a department to
HR for the proper management of human resources through whom competitive advantage
could be created.
