There has been examples of new practices being introduced, such as performance appraisal, performance related pay, training and development, mentoring, management of change, organizational design and so on. In only some scenarios of these Kuwaiti organizations are among the implementation of innovative HRM practices perceived to be successful and that often the applications of Anglo-American practices were being associated with pure Kuwaiti organizations. Indeed, there was strong evidence of HRM being embedded in these Kuwaiti organizations and lots of examples of properly executing Western HRM practices into career development motivation as directly as possible. Thus, at National Bank of Kuwait for instance, HRM practices reported were better use of performance appraisals, the willingness to take responsibility, compensate and reward equality, respect of job titles, understanding of business team and the effective matching of human resource values with enduring traits of the Western regime. Aside, certain HRM issues have inhibited management and economic development in Kuwait and stained the country's image. With respect to linking HRM practices to organizational goals, human resource planning is the thread that ties together all other human resource activities, integrating them with the rest of the organization (Kleiman, 2007, p. 56) and that the use of technology is encouraging because human resources information systems and other technologies have streamlined the processing of data, making organization HR information more readily available for assessment
