1.1      Background of the study

In organizations, human resource management is concerned with the overseeing and controlling the employees so as to develop the organizations’ performance (Osemeke & Monday, 2012). Human resource management covers such practices as human resource planning, recruitment and selection, training and development, compensation management and performance appraisal (Eniola & Elizabeth, 2013). To what extent, these practices influences the performance of the organization is the credence theme of the present study. In any case, various analysts exposed that human resource management practices are accepted to be the basic constituent of organizational procedure (Benjamin & Anthony, 2014). In such manner, the organizations need wise, instructed, skillful, conferred and profoundly energetic employees to build up a way for boosting the organizational performance. Thusly, human resource management generally implies the undertakings looking over employees, counseling with them, instructing them, empowering them through training to shape their tenacity, accomplish their potential endeavors and to encourage the organizational destinations (Fahad, Nadeem & Samsaa, 2015),.

The organizational performance is an indicator which measures how well an association/ firm/ undertaking/ business substance accomplishes their destinations. The organizational performance is concerned with administration quality, administration advancement, worker fascination, representative maintenance, client/worker fulfillment and management /representative relationship (Caliskan & Nemli. 2010). The literature revealed that the human components of the organization are those that are equipped for learning, changing, enhancing and giving the innovative push which if legitimately roused can guarantee the long haul survival of the organization (Danlami, 2012). In such manner, the human resources have been distinguished to be both profitable and a source of advantage. It is additionally examined that the practices utilized by an organization to deal with its human resources can substantially affect numerous organizational results (Eniola & Elizabeth, 2013). At the point when organizations face difficulties, for example, a financial droop, it depends deliberately upon prepared experts who respond rapidly to changes in nature and make techniques for achievement. Human resource management practices are liable of organizational performance in precisely selecting and training, rewards, compensation and incidental advantages, obliged aptitudes to seek after the system viably and the assessment of performance of the employees. Human resource management can be depicted as a key, coordinated and cognizant way to deal with the occupation, development and prosperity of the people working in associations (Benjamin & Anthony, 2014). It has a solid reasonable premise drawn from the behavioral sciences and from key management, human capital and mechanical relations speculations. Human resource management is the approaches, practices and frameworks that impact representatives' conduct, states of mind and performance (Fahad, Nadeem & Samsaa, 2015). Parallel to the understanding those human resources are fundamental for an organization; human resource management capacity is additionally going up in organizational pecking order. Human resource management intends to guarantee that the organization gets and holds the talented, conferred and very much spurred workforce it needs (Robindro & Kassa, 2016).

In the past, worker retention strategies have tended to be planned internally and independently by the companies concerned. Coordination at the global level and an exchange of best practices on innovative retention policies within the industry can help. It is important for young workers of both sexes that companies have gender-differentiated career development plans in place, including mentoring to meet their need for guidance on their career path, advice on day-to-day issues in the workplace and personal development. Coordination and cooperation are also required for skills migration policies. Many workers in the oil and gas industry are employed through specialized services companies, and accidents are more prevalent for contract workers than for regular company employees. Although there are no ILO instruments that specifically address contractors’ and subcontractors’ safety and health at work (or for training in the industry), those concerning occupational safety and health (OSH) in general emphasize the importance of OSH training for all workers. Safety training should focus on supporting preventive action and finding practical solutions. Many accident reports emphasize that training in the oil and gas industry must contribute to improving the safety culture, that safety training needs to be supported and that all workers should be involved. Safety training in the industry includes soft skills such as communication among workers and between employers and contractors; and industry-specific safety requirements such as risk assessment, risk management, chemical safety, emergency preparedness, safety reporting, mitigation, emergency response and evacuation. It is crucial to incorporate respect for tripartite social dialogue in safety training in order to continuously improve the safety culture. To this end, the ILO Guidelines on occupational safety and health management systems (ILO-OSH 2001) is an important instrument
