Human resource management is vital for improving any organization’s performance. As results of recent research
have proven that human resource applications affect business performance, measuring the impact of various
applications is necessary to use the limited resources wisely. A survey was conducted involving 156 firms from
Turkey’s top 500 companies and job enrichment, enlargement and simplification were among the human resource
applications studied. Impact on organizational performance was operationalized using three variables: financial and
market performance in addition to job satisfaction and firm loyalty. Finally, suggestions were made to HR Managers
on effectively using the HRM variables to increase organizational performance.
