Human Resource Management is a management function that helps managers to recruit, select, train and develop members for an organization. HRM is concerned with the people’s dimensions in organizations. HRM refers to a set of programs, functions, and activities designed and carried out. The present study compares the perception of human resource management practices between the drivers and conductors in Kerala State Road Transport Corporation with the help of Canonical Discriminant Analysis. For the purpose of the study, 378 drivers and 382 conductors were considered from three regions of KSRTC, namely, north, central and south regions through disproportionate stratified random sampling method. The study identified that the selected predictor variables of human resource management practices have direct effect in discriminating the perception between drivers and conductors of KSRTC. Hence it is concluded from the discriminant analysis that there is a significant difference in the perception between the drivers and conductors towards human resource management practices of KSRTC.
