Human resources development is an important component for the success of any organization. Human resource management plays a crucial role in the implementation of strategic management in cooperatives. It has, however, not been accorded the importance it deserves in the cooperative institutions. The existing organizational design of most of the cooperatives does not conform to the basic principles of human resources management of a sound institution. The cooperatives are generally headed by a committee of elected members, who are not necessarily professionals. The cooperatives will have to evolve sound personnel policies encompassing proper manpower planning and assessment. It is necessary to evolve scientific staffing norms. There should also be a conscious policy for developing the second line of management in all key functional areas. Conscious and well specified HRD principles in crucial areas like recruitment, placement, training, career progression, managerial grooming, etc., are lacking in most of the cooperatives. There was no evidence of an objective system involving professional guidance for recruitment in cooperatives in several states. Therefore, it is necessary to study on human resource development in cooperative. This paper attempts to analyze the human resource development in cooperatives. A diagnostic research design (theoretical analysis) is followed in the present study. Empirical results show human resource management and development in cooperatives are is not effective.
