Selecting an HR strategy* 1. Introduction Like all of the other major business functions, human resources must accomplish a wide range of  activities from basic transaction processing to strategic planning in order to be successful. The  importance ascribed to each of those functional activities in large part represents your human  resource strategy. Delivering a strategic impact requires development of a strategy that supports the corporate  business objectives, aligning and prioritizing each of the various activities to support and help  accomplish those objectives. While an infinite number of HR strategies can be formulated, most  in use today fall under a relatively small number of models. While I don't recommend using a  strategy just because of major firm uses it, it is helpful to know what the range of strategies  available to HR are. This article highlights the various HR strategy models and provides some  insights into the advantages and disadvantages of each. 2. What are the most widely used HR strategies? If you study successful organizations around the world, you'll find that there are a finite number of  HR strategies in use. Although each of the strategies listed below is a distinct category, many  firms use them in combination in order to arrive at an approach that best fits their situation. For  example, stable business units that provide the core revenue base for an organization may  operate under one strategy while a business unit that focuses on future development may  operate under another. Widely admired firms like Intel, General Electric, Cisco, Nucor and Microsoft have found that a  "performance culture" is the best approach to drive their success. While other excellent  companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Oracle and Dell Computer have adopted an e-HR strategy  where technology permeates everything they do in HR. Other successful companies have  achieved good results using the more traditional business partner or personnel strategy. Each  category has its advantages, costs and disadvantages so be sure and compare and contrast  them before deciding that any one is the overall best. 3. The 10 basic HR strategies The 10 basic most commonly used HR strategies or models are: A. Personnel B. Generalist C. Business partner D. Call centre E. Outsourced

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
