This study aimed to investigate the effects of human resource practices in public organizations in Ethiopia; the case of the Ministry of Health. The study utilized both an explanatory and a descriptive research design. The study population was comprised of all the 570 employees of the surveyed organization, and 235 self-administered questionnaires were returned properly, which was used to collect primary data. Descriptive statistics were computed to describe the characteristics of the variables in the study, while correlation and multiple regression analysis were used to establish the nature of the relationships between the independent and dependent variables. The findings indicate that there is a significant positive effect between recruitment and selection, training and development, compensation and performance appraisal, and organizational performance. The results support the theory of resource-based view that says competitive advantage comes from the resources that are possessed by an organization. This study concluded that the HRM practices have been adopted by the companies in order to achieve positive performance. This study suggests that executives should offer competitive compensation to their staff, effective performance appraisal, and sufficient training and recruitment.
