Abstract: The aim of this study is to explore and confirm the factors of employee development practices and sustainable organisational performance in the context of Indian steel organisations. Data is collected using questionnaire from employees of two Indian steel organisations. Exploratory Factor analysis, Confirmatory factor analysis and Cronbach alpha is conducted for scale development and assessing the reliability and validity of both constructs. The results provided sufficient evidence to confirm high degree of validity and reliability between the identified EDP and SOP scales. Both the scales of EDP and SOP are developed in the context of Indian steel organisations only. The identified factors of EDP and SOP will help the policy makers, managers and practitioners of not only steel industry but set a benchmark for other manufacturing industries in developing the most critical asset of an organisation i.e., human assets and its contribution in sustainable development of an organisation.
