The reasoning behind Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM)
Strategic human resource management by definition utilizes employees as a source for managing any organization’s needs. As such, organizations assets include the employees that provide a viable advantage to the said organization. Forward thinking organizations have this perspective and show this; by the way, employees are hired, promoted and compensated. This action on the organizations part creates an environment and workforce poised for corporate success.

The planning and employment process of a human resources department to funnel an employee from the “candidate stage” all the way through the “hiring process,” to “employee status” and then to the “remuneration and benefits stage” is a goal that has a sequence, which in turn must embraces federal legislative policies and procedures. This above-mentioned process ensures that the organizations remain compliant with respect to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), diversity inclusion and affirmative action plans (Paynes, 2013, p.89).
