Abstract

This research endeavours to investigate the involvement of the Human Resources (HR) department throughout the budgeting process and the utilization of budgets to further perform HR activities. Study seeks empirical evidence based on the responses elicited from HR department managers in 100 Pakistani companies with a distinct HR department. Results suggest that the HR department has limited involvement in the budgeting procedures, which in turn could explain the limited use of budgets as a means of performance evaluation and communication. Evidence from survey showed that HR departments in Pakistan do fully capitalize on the budgets as a mean of achieving organizational goals. This study contributes to the literature by analysing the responses of HR department managers and their views towards the budgeting function from HR management perspective in Pakistani companies.
