Abstract

This study was conducted to identify teachers’ perceptions toward human resource management dimensions in an International School in Prawet district, Bangkok, Thailand and to compare teachers’ perceptions classified by various demographic factors. A quantitative survey methodology was adopted for this study. The researcher used Henri Fayol’s administrative theory and HRM models for discussion. The findings demonstrated that teachers’ perceptions toward human resources management in school was at a low level and there was no significant difference in teachers’ perceptions toward human resource management dimensions according to demographic factors such as age, gender, nationality, period of work experience and education level. However, the results also revealed that Thai teachers’ and Asian teachers’ perceptions toward professional development had a significant difference in the direction that the mean of Asian teachers’ perception was higher than Thai teachers’. To become better educational administrators, it is recommended leaders review and revise their HRM policy and practices especially in teachers’ retention strategy and other weaknesses found. There could be valuable research conducted on a similar study in other International Schools, Thai schools and bilingual schools to compare HRM in education.
