(p.117) 6 Contextual Diversity for the Role and Practice of HR
Strategic Human Resource Management

Veronica Hope Hailey

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that the normative and prescriptive models of both personnel management and human resource management have been too simplistic and have failed to address the diverse and complex roles that are required of the function. These models imply, amongst others, two things: first, that a progression from a bureaucratic form of personnel management to a strategically integrated human resource management function is desirable for all organizations if they are to manage people effectively; and second, that a best practice model of people management necessitates a strategic role for the personnel/HR function.
