Authors: Akangoa, Roland
Issue Date: 31-Jul-2014
Abstract: Contemporary organizations reap a lot of benefits from line managers who perform their HR role as expected. HRM is an inevitable consequence of starting and growing an organization and indisputably transcends across every part of an organization. The main objective of the research was to investigate the dyadic relationship between line managers‟ role and the HRM function. The study also sought to identify how line managers‟ role impact on businesses and the challenges that line managers face when performing their HR role. Primary and secondary sources of data were used in the research work. Questionnaires were used to gather primary data. The sample size of the study constituted two hundred and twenty seven (227) employees of ECG in Kumasi, Ashanti East Region. Data collected was organized into tables and figures based on the objectives of the study. The results were then analyzed and converted into percentages and other charts. Quantitative methods were used in the data analysis. From the study, it was revealed that line managers are effective in recruitment and selection, line managers‟ delivery of HRM practices increased employees‟ performance, line managers are incompetent and they lack support from the HRM department . Based on these findings, it is recommended that HRM professionals should support line managers, provide regular training for line managers and appoint line managers professionally. It is also recommended that team building exercise be embraced by both line managers and HRM professionals since line managers need HRM professionals and HRM professionals need line managers.
