Access to knowledge resources such as human capital and managing these capitals is the main element of attaining competitive advantages in a knowledge-based economy, in a manner that needs a distinctive paradigm of human resource management. The necessity of adopting diverse human resource practices for driving innovation has resulted in doing current research aimed at considering the impact of different initiatives of innovative human resource management on entrepreneurship. The research method is descriptive–correlational and based on Structural Equation Modeling. The survey population consisted of the employees of Bouali Sina Petrochemical Complex (BSPC) out of which 227 employees were selected by using simple random sampling based on sampling formula. The main tool of gathering data was questionnaire. The research results indicated that formation of innovative climate paves the way for entrepreneurship. Accordingly, there are positive and meaningful relationships between innovative training, innovative performance appraisal and innovative compensation with climate for innovation while a significant relation is not inferred between innovative recruitment and climate for change. Subsequently, some suggestions have been provided for HR managers to help them develop and improve entrepreneurship.
