Human resources practices are essential in influencing organisation performance. The primary goal of the study was to understand the influence of human resources practices on performance of Local Governments in Tanzania.The study was guided by three specific objectives which seek to identify the effects of employees’ compentnce on the performance of LGAs; to determine the influence of employees’ commitment on the performance of LGAs; and to assess the influence of employees’ working environment on the performance of LGAs in Tanzania mainland.The study was performed using explanatory design with facts generated from interviews and focus group discussions. The facts were supplemented by data collected from secondary sources. The data from both interviews and FGDs were analysed through content analysis. Data were transcribed to list codes which were combined to identify themes and patterns. Conclusions were drawn through patterns and relations between themes and comparison between cases. Findings revealed that, employees’ competence, commitment, and working enviroment have relatively high influence on the performance of Tanzania LGAs.These HR practices are obtained through recruitment on variable demands,proper training and development policies, good compensation policy,proper performance management and conducive work environment. Finally, it is recommended that human resource practices and performance in LGAs is a two way traffic that the government must make sure that it commits and assures that employees are supplied with all the expectations from the government to conform to the good practices influencing performance.
