Abstract

Firms in the developing and advancing industrial society are increasingly turning to best practices to gain competitive advantage and business performance. The universalistic perspective of human resource practices view practice or set of practices that will work in most if not all firms to gain competitive advantage and business performance. It is based on the concept that some HRM practices will be better than other practices and that these ‘best practices’ should be adopted by all firms. Unlike study by Delery and Doty (1996) in banking industry only, this study is done across different industries to relate HRM best practices to business performance. This paper is directed towards understanding the case of Malaysian HRM best practices and business performance prior to, during and immediately after the financial crisis of 2007-2008.
