    Abstract

    The main aim of this paper is to explore the human resource management problems faced by the public sector organisations in the Solomon Islands and Samoa. This study used the Contingency approach to examine how the contingency variables have an impact on the human resource management problems faced by the public sector of Solomon Islands and Samoa. The findings from this paper showed that some of the human resource management problems faced by the public sector of Samoa and Solomon Islands are financial constraints, inability to retain skilled workforce, lack of skilled workforce, lack of employee collaboration and consultation, hostile working environment, lack of top management support and poor employee attitude. This study has implications for policy makers and academics.
