Abstract

Hospital management has been centre of academic and research attention for decades in advanced countries due to its significance in community healthcare. Effective utilization of human resource available in hospitals has also received increasing attention in developed countries. However, there seemed acute shortage of empirical evidence from developing countries especially from Pakistan. As a result, this study investigated Effective Utilization of HRM in Selected Public and Private Hospitals of Karachi and Hyderabad, Sindh through questionnaire survey. Findings of this study suggest sharp contrast in the way human resource is managed in two sectors. Private healthcare sector appeared effective in utilization of available human factor with incentive schemes and motivation at work. While, public sector hospitals seemed governed through cumbersome rules with less opportunity of employee involvement, motivation and satisfaction. Policy recommendation for government and decision making quarters are discussed in the last section
