Globally, business organizations recognize that engaging human resource management practices on an international standard is imperative. But realizing target performance from just scarce resources is a challenge to most organisations. Many organisations are continuously spending time trying to control and master change making them losers. With the current practice, HR has not been able to deliver on training line management in methods of achieving high employee production. This paper investigated the Influence of Elements of Work Realities on HRD Mandate Capability in Banking Organisations in Nairobi County, Kenya. The main objectives pursued included to establish the relationship between employer-employee champion and HRD mandate capability in Banking Organisations in Nairobi County, Kenya; to determine the association between continuous transformation agent and HRD mandate capability in Banking Organisations in Nairobi County, Kenya. A survey of banking institutions was used while a questionnaire and interview schedule and content analysis were used to gather primary data. The target population was 850 and a sample size of 272 was used. Statistical analysis was done using Statistical Package of Social Sciences (SPSS) current version. The findings confirmed that there are problems facing human resource mandate delivery capability. It was concluded that all the two elements of work realities have significant influence on HR mandate delivery capability. It was therefore recommended that organisations need to consider factors such as employer-employee champion and continuous transformation agent elements which are capable of influencing HR mandate delivery capability. Human resource should therefore discontinue their non-value adding traditional practices to service delivery.
