Osman Bayraktar, Hüner Şencan

This paper aims to clarify how employees of interest-free banks approached to HR practices from the perspective of the asset and resources concepts. The study aims to present the effect of the “asset concept” on the evaluation of human resources practices. The paper is a descriptive analytical study. 351 out of 550 survey forms that were sent to the sample group were chosen to be evaluated and the data was analyzed using SPSS 22. The data was examined based on the theoretical framework of human asset and the human resources conceptual structures. Results showed that there existed a statistically significant and positive relationship between “human assets” orientation and their ways of evaluating “human resources practices”. Although this relationship was positive, it can be evaluated as a weak one. According to the conclusions made based on the findings of the research management and human resources applications that are realized within the framework of human assets in the interest-free banks affect the employees positively and have a feature of increasing their morale and motivation. Therefore, education, consciousness raising applications and adoption of the approach of human values can provide beneficial results to the businesses.
