Business and People Strategy and Performance

Research Report: Developing a Strategic HR Approach

  • July 17, 2013

Learn how to apply the principles of social science to HR practices, to determine what factors make a difference and under what circumstances.

We don’t believe in ‘best practice’, which implies one-size-fits-all, but we seek to identify good practice and define a set of operating principles that apply under most circumstances. Our view is that the business circumstances and conditions should influence HR’s approach fundamentally.

Topics explored in this report include:

  • Does HR strategy exist?
  • How HR strategy can better align with wider business strategy
  • Four strategic roles that HR can play, depending on the needs of the business
  • Tendencies of strategic HR approaches
  • Emergent vs intended HR strategy
  • Effective people strategies
  • HR’s unique contribution to the organisation
  • Improving and developing talent.
