Good HR practices can create and add value for the organization. The Corporate Sector has slowly evolved and adopted a number of contemporary and good HR practices to effectively manage their human resources. These HR practices are equally relevant for the Indian Armed forces. With its 1.4 million strong human resources, the Indian Armed forces are a virtual treasure trove of HR issues, challenges and best practices. Today’s challenges require informed decisions on force structure requirements, recruiting and retention programs, well-being programs and personnel readiness from both individual and unit perspectives. Incorporating best HR practices in policies relating to selection system, training and development, appraisal, leadership styles, organizational climate and people orientation, revisited, will help in meeting that challenge. This paper aims to carry out a comparative study of use of Best HR practices in both the organisations.
