HRM practices in Taiwan have been developed with Taiwanese economic structure. Indeed, it has changed from traditional labor-intensive to a more capital-intensive marketplace. Simultaneously, the Taiwanese industrial structure is transitioned to service-oriented industry dominated structure.

Qualitative research is conducted with case studies by interviews. The results of the research are summarized as follow: (1) The HRM practices between manufacturing and service-oriented industrial firms in Taiwan are different among specific functions; (2) The appropriate firm’s HRM practices can enhance human capital of the firm; (3) The HRM practices between manufacturing and service-oriented industrial firms in Taiwan are different. Conclusion, managerial implications and suggestions for future research are discussed in the end.
