Abstract

Human Resources in an organization are the type of resources that possess the ability to make decisions, the ability to create and innovate, and the ability to generate and enhance a sustainable competitive advantage. Hence, managing Human Resources strategically has been critical. Similarly, measuring the practices of strategic human resource management has also been difficult. The objective of this paper is to present an instrument to measure the Practice of Strategic Human Resource Management in Private Sector Organizations. A systematic and adequate attempt was made to conceptualize and operationalize the construct of the Practice of Strategic Human Resource Management and the instrument was based on three dimensions i.e., coherence, integration and devolvement. By using 288 Heads of Human Resources and 288 Chief Executive Officers of Sri Lankan listed firms, various forms of validity and reliability were tested and it was found that the instrument possesses adequate degrees of validity and reliability. It is of the belief that the instrument can be utilized for future research studying the Practice of Strategic Human Resource Management in organizations.
