The Human Resource Management (HRM) Assessment Instrument is a structured, participatory self-evaluation tool designed to be used by non-governmental organizations and public sector health institutions to assess the status of HRM in their organizations and to facilitate the development of improvement strategies. The instrument is organized according to the core functions of a HRM system: HRM Capacity, HRM Planning, Personnel Policy and Practice, HRM Data, and Performance Management and Training. These functions are described in a matrix with four stages of development and indicators for each stage. The instrument should be used in conjunction with a review of documents at the organization including personnel files, job descriptions, financial/payroll records, and relevant labor law.
