Jyoti Verma


It is anticipated that, as a result of increased competitive pressures, the emphasis is on the search for competitive advantage and strive is to align better personnel policy choice with business strategy. Thus, the purpose of this conceptual paper is to provide an overview of the SHRM literature with the foundation of personnel management (PM) and thereafter of human resource management (HRM) that builds up to our current concern with paradoxes, ambiguities, and balance issues. This paper has addressed the special issue on managing the dualities in SHRM i.e. strategy in HRM practices, whether it is a compulsion or a choice for organizations. After reading this, practitioners might gain more insights in the potential tensions/issues, ambiguities, and conflicts of interest that are characteristic for the field of SHRM in practice and then can take decisions that whether the practice of SHRM should be a compulsion or choice for the organization.
