Good Governance, Rule of Law, Recruitment and Selection, Training and Development, Human Resource Management


Purpose:  The aim of this study is to examine a relationship between good governance application and human resource management and propose the model of good governance application for human resource management of Mahamakut Buddhist University.


Theoretical framework: Recent literature indicated that good governance application can increase organizational efficiency and effectiveness and help the organization to achieve sustainable growth and development (Burikul, 2003). However, there was a lack of studies that explore how good governance can be applied to improve the processes of human resource management in the university.


Design/methodology/approach: We distributed the research questionnaires to 350 employees who work in Mahamakut Buddhist University during May 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, and received 321 questionnaires. We applied both descriptive and inferential statistics to analyze the collected data.


Findings: The results of the study illustrated that good governance application was positively related to human resource management and had an effect on human resource management of Mahamakut Buddhist University.


Research, Practical & Social implications: The study indicated that good governance can be implemented in human resource management to gain qualified employees, to improve career advancement, employee satisfaction, life quality of employees, and create organizational justice and sustainable growth of the university.


Originality/value: The value of the study is that good governance can improve the processes of human resource management to be transparent, fair, effective and acceptable. An application of good governance leads to sustainable growth and development of the university as a whole.
