Human Resource Alignment
From Business Strategy to HR Practice
by Stephen M Flynn

Is your human resources (HR) strategy aligned with that of your business? Often an organisation’s strategy is expressed in financial or marketing terms; in some cases it is even absent. It is then hard to translate into HR plans. Human Resource Alignment offers practical advice to HR professionals in creating an HR plan that is in sync with the overall business strategy.

Stephen’s book offers the concept of ‘organisational maturity’ as the means of translating the business strategy into HR practice. The reader is shown how to identify the current maturity level of their business from the pattern of work practices evident in the organisation. The book then demonstrates how to select a pattern of tangible HR practices that align with the organisation’s maturity level. Finally, the reader is shown how to structure their HR department to deliver the newly-created HR plan.

Human Resource Alignment draws from Stephen’s 36 years experience of the human resources profession, 18 of which he has spent as a Senior HR Director. Alongside Stephen’s practical experience, the book draws on contributions from the wider HR literature; ultimately providing a template that can be adapted for the needs of any and every organisation. The book will appeal to business leaders and HR professionals, as well as those entering and studying the world of human resources and personnel.
