Abstract
This study examined the role of Human Resource Management (HRM) in achieving organisational
competitiveness in a selected South African State-Owned Enterprise (SOE) in Gauteng province.A qualitative
research approach wasused with data obtained usingstructured interviewsfrom the company’s human resource
practitioners and departmental heads. Purposive non-probability sampling was applied in recruiting 24
participants and data was analysed usingthematic analysis. The study revealed that, HRMdepartment provided
opportunities for employees to upskill themselves through short courses and university degrees such as honours,
masters and PhDs. However, employees reported that their remuneration packages are not commensurate with
their skill sets and capabilities leading to low morale. It was therefore recommended for the organisation to
conduct an industrial survey to decipher the going remuneration rates in order to offer competitive packages to
their employees.

Key words: Human Resource Management, state-owned enterprise, competitive advantage, training and development, salary, bonus, low morale
