The paper aims to throw light on High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs) spanning the management discourse and augmenting people-oriented approach, resulting in sterling performance. The authors contend that the best way to reap the benefits of HR practices is to consider employees as valued asset of the organization and have certain delineated bundles of practices with a staunch perspective to create a synergistic environment for building economics as well as human capital. An attempt has been made to discuss and understand the recent trends in HPWPs in greater depth, moving beyond improvising knowledge, skills and abilities.

 
 
 

High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs) can be defined as practices which aim to enhance an organization’s effectiveness, while attracting, selecting, hiring and developing high performing workforce as well as high performance organizations. These are the modern management practices which aim to harvest “growth and benefits” within the organization and among employees and establish a paradigm that provides a “win-win” situation for the employee as well as the employers. This win-win situation can be a junction for generating not only financial capital and sterling performances, but also “human capital”—in essence, fostering “people-oriented approach”, that in turn has spillover effects on extraordinary performances and outcomes.
