Strategic HR


Strategic HR is the strategic management of human resources aligned with the organisation’s intended future direction. It is concerned with longer-term people issues and macro-concerns about structure, quality, culture, values, commitment and matching resources to future need. You’ll find here information on HR strategy, HR capability, alignment of the HR function with business strategy and the contribution of HR to business performance.
