Abstract:The understanding in the way how healthcare organization operates reveals fundamental problems in the infrastructure and synergy of processes which hinders healthcare organizations to achieve an unprecedented performance in high quality of care. HRM is determined as a key asset to integrate efficient operations by having line managers implementing HR practices in its intended way. Despite the efforts to achieve an alignment throughout the organizational levels, the study of Bos-Nehles (2010) reveals five main factors that are responsible for major discrepancies in the real implementation of HR practices with incisive effects on the efficiency of the practices in the private sector. This study contributes to the problem by analysing in detail the five main reasons stated by Bos-Nehles for the differences in the implementation process of HR practices particularly in the healthcare sector. The research focuses on a hospital over a period of 30th May to 11th June 2016, using three semi-structured interviews conducted with a HR manager and two line managers and analysed by a specific coding scheme. This methodology enables to elaborate the effect of the five factors on the day-to day implementation process of line managers and the difficulties to its intended execution. The outcome of the study shows the lack of capacity and clarity in policies and procedures as the major factors that impact the implementation process of line managers, while some lack in desire of the line managers and support by HR are determined as valid but less important factors.
