Strategic Human Resource Management

Philip Stiles

Oxford University Press

Major structural and cultural effects have occurred as organizations have attempted to move from one image of themselves to another in a bid to maintain and enhance their competitive capabilities. This chapter describes how the companies have managed the transition process, particularly in terms of their use of human resource management to facilitate change. It examines the causes of change, the key levers the organizations have used to manage the process, and the effect the change initiatives have had on employees. It argues that the methods adopted by organizations have been broadly similar and follow a similar pattern.
