Additionally, survey questionnaire technique was utilized for data collection from the respondents who were selected through random sampling technique. The findings of the study showed participation of the employees in decision making i.e. making them autonomous to some extent contributes largely towards innovative strategic management.

In addition to that, the link between HPWPs and firm performance was strengthened by the mediator in case of participation, job definition and performance appraisal. Lastly, the study enlightens the management to employ only those SHRM practices which have the most effective impact on firm performance.
