    The objective of this paper is to investigate the relationship between HRM practices and Continuous Improvement (CI) activities in order to gain an understanding of how the HRM function may be utilized to improve CI implementation success, and consequently, organizational performance. The paper includes a brief literature review of HRM and CI and statistical analyses of data collected from the Continuous Innovation Network Survey (2002). The results of the analyses demonstrate that HRM has a significant effect on CI and organizational behavior, with the strongest relationship between HRM, CI and performance occurring when company's align their CI activities with their strategic objectives and use of systems, procedures, and processes to measure the results of their CI activities .
