Conclusions: The study is grounded in the theoretical framework of human resource management. Additionally, the study incorporates concepts related to human resources within the firm sector.  Based on this result, the study proposes some recommendations for mechanical engineering firms in Hanoi and employees. The value of this research lies in guiding mechanical engineering firms in Hanoi to enhance human resource management for improved performance and innovation.
