The role of strategy in human resources management:

Human resources management requires strategic thinking. It involves taking a comprehensive approach to managing people in the workplace. Effective human resources management aims to contribute towards increasing employee productivity and overall business performance. This can only be done if the HRM functions are carried out within the context of a broader business strategy.

Here are a few examples of strategic HRM:

  • Identifying the training needs of existing employees, and arranging suitable training opportunities to meet these needs.
  • Identifying skills gaps within the organisation, and developing and implementing a plan aimed at filling these gaps.
  • Doing succession planning – this may involve headhunting new employees, or grooming current employees for more senior positions.

As you can see from the examples above, strategy has an important role to play in the effectiveness of human resources management. Effective HRM, in turn, is essential to the success of an organisation.
