The study evaluates the obstacles human resource practitioners face in Pakistan's businesses in this research paper. A total of hundred human resource practitioners from a hundred randomly selected firms and one hundred eighty others belonging to different occupations were contacted through a structured questionnaire, and their responses were taken. They responded to a Likert scale questionnaire measuring five major obstacles to implementing HRM practices. The purpose of the research is to know the thinking of the experts on the importance of issues they face while executing HRM practices such as recruitment and selection, training and development, performance appraisal, compensation and benefits, and first-line manager knowledge about HRM. Data has been compiled and tested on SPSS with Multiple Linear regression, showing that recruitment and selection, training, development, performance appraisals, and need assessments (IVs) impact HR Practices.
