Organizations are expected to perform. The expectations as regards to what performance may be acceptable, in the short or long term, differs on the basis of interest of the stakeholders. Improved organizational performance are mostly evident over a certain period of time; where the organizations have been able to learn and relearn from the effectiveness and efficiency of their processes, effects of corporate strategy, systems, and policies; and the business environment dynamics that sometimes necessitates re-strategizing and reintroduction of newer policies, strategies, and systems. All of which are aimed toward ensuring improved performance in the different arm of the organization (management, administrative, and operation), and the organization at large. Ensuring a state of performance is important only before improved performance can be achieved. Managing the pool of people and resources for the goal of achieving improved performance, influencing actions, routines, systems, decisions, and relations within and without the workplace in a manner that ensures a congruent goal of improved organizational performance is a duty expected of a sophisticated department of the organization like the human resource (HR). The impact of human resource management (HRM) on organizational performance, in whatever regard, is determinable to the extent of how well HRM functions and operations are executed. This study sought to assess, understand and evaluate how impactful HRM contributes to improved organizational performance through it functions. The study reviewed literature on the subject and responses to research questions from 151 participants were analyzed to establish a correlation between HRM scopes and improved organizational performance. HRM impacts were measured using HRM functions as a parameter and organizational performance was determined by testing alignment between organizational strategies and objectives through responses to productivity appraisal questions from respondents. The study concluded that effective HRM does contribute to improved organizational performance.
