Beer and his colleagues were the first to underline the HRM tenet that it belongs to line managers. They suggested that HRM had two characteristic features: 1) line managers accept more responsibility Chapter 1 The Concept of HRM for ensuring the alignment of competitive strategy and HR policies; and 2) HR has the mission of setting policies that govern how HR activities are dev­ eloped and implemented in ways that make them more mutually reinforcing. The other major early contributors to the development of the philosophy of HRM – Fombrun et al (1984) – produced what has been termed the ‘matching model’, which indicated that HR systems and the organization structure should be managed in a way that is congruent with organizational strategy.

The emphasis is on business alignment and strategic fit. These are important requirements, but focusing on them can lead HR professionals to place cor­ respondingly less emphasis on employee needs and motivations when developing their new and altered arrangements. A simplistic view of the business imperative permits little room for considering how HR strategy should impact on individual employees. HRM indeed aims to support the achievement of business goals but, equally, it should aim to build a relationship based on trust, openness and personal fulfilment.
