The focus of this paper is on the impact of HRM practices on private sector organisations performance in Nigeria. Guinness Nigeria Plc is a private sector driving entity. Its human resource practices can be crucial to its performance. The purpose of this study therefore was to assess whether Guinness‟s human resource management practices, particularly recruitment and selection, Staff performance appraisal, compensation, and training and development practices influence its performance. Simple random sampling was used to select eighty employees from Guinness Nig. Plc. T-tests were carried out to examine the relationship between the selected Human Resources practices and organization performance. The results revealedthat, from the perceptions of the respondents, there exists a positive relationship between effective recruitment and selection practices, effective performance appraisal practices and Guinness‟s performance. The research did not gather sufficient evidence to conclude on how compensation, training and development practices influence organization‟s performance. The study recommends that the management of Guinness Nig. Plc continues to ensure that the company‟s Human Resources policy, effective recruitment and selection practices, as well as effective performance appraisal practices are upheld.
