Shehzad Ahmed, Mahr Muhammad Saeed Akhtar

Human Resource Practices (HRPs) are a set of practices through which an organization governs its employees. Effective implementation of HRPs is crucial for an organization to achieve its goals and objectives. The purpose of the present study was to develop a research scale to assess the effective implementation of HRPs in General Public Sector Universities (GPSUs) of Pakistan. The development of the research scale was done after considering the intricacies and specifications taken from related literature review. The prevailing scenario of GPSUs Pakistan was kept in mind during the scale development process. The research scale encompassed the six factors of HRPs namely recruitment and , orientation, training and development, performance appraisal, compensation and benefits, and working environment. The research scale was validated through peer review and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in the field. Finally, 34 statements were . University of the Punjab, Lahore (One of many General Public Sector University) was through simple random sampling (fish bowl) technique. Further, two hundred and fifty (250) permanent faculty members were also taken through simple random sampling (fish bowl) technique from the university. The scale reliability index was found alpha () 0.937, whereas for each factor,  ranged from 0.598 to 0.927. The positive, strong and significant correlation of each factor with overall sum of Human Resource Practices-Assessment Scale (HRP-AS) for teachers showed that all factors contribute towards assessing the main construct while relatively weaker inter-factor correlations indicate mutual independence of each factor.
