Performance is an important aspect of HRM. Employees should be motivated in order to improve on their performance. Employees should therefore be provided with a sound working environment and also good pay. When employees fail to be motivated they tend to be reluctant in their productivity and cannot attain the organizations' goals. To enhance performance of employees it is imperative to improve harmony develop favourable relationship and alleviate conflict among them. A high performance work system is an integrated set of HRM policies and practices that together produce superior fmployee performance. Contigent rewards, information sharing, reduced status distinction between managers and workers, employment security and selective hiring help improve performance. The efficiency of an educational system depends largely on the efficiency of its teachers. The quality of education imparted to students depends to a large extent on the quality of teachers in the schools and colleges. Buildings, equipment, curricula, books and teaching methods are no doubt important. But no other aspect of education is so vital and significant as the men and women who actually teach in the educational institutions. It is they who can make a proper use of the buildings and equipment, who can give life and meaning to the curriculum, who can make the books interesting or dull, who can make teaching methods inspiring or soul killing. Performance of teachers is equally as important to education. It becomes the key to a good school system. The study was guided by the objective; to investigate to what extent remuneration, workload, and conditions of service, incentives and promotion influence performance of teachers. All the head teachers and teachers interviewed were from randomly sampled schools which were included in the study. The sample,covered teachers in the selected five public secondary schools with fifty respondents in all schools and was limited to Maranda Division, Bondo Di'hrict, Nyanza province, Kenya. The methodology used in the study was descriptive survey; because of the nature of the study that required a descriptive analysis of the situation based on respondents perspective.
