Tea is one of the leading plantation commodities in Indonesia. Most of the tea commodities produced today are exported to the international market. The success of tea plantations in facing the dynamics and challenges of course cannot be separated from the implementation of good human resource management where human resource management is aimed at improving the quality of the company’s workforce. This paper aims to determine the application of human resource management in a tea plantation company in Indonesia (case study: PT. Perkebunan Tambi). The qualitative research method used in this study used an interactive model and took sources from key informants. The results of this study indicated that PT. Perkebunan Tambi implements human resource management starting from planning, recruitment, selection, socialization or orientation, training and development, performance appraisal to promotion, transfer, and termination of employment to increase productivity and quality of its employees.
