Abstract:

This study assessed the match between strategic direction, human resource policies and the perceptions of those policies held by middle managers in five successful organizations. Human resource practices related to retention -- job movement, organizational signals, and incentives -- were the focus of three separate studies. The results indicated that the strategic considerations of these organizations were well served by their human resource practices although the configuration of policies and practices differed. The research also indicated that these effective organizations exhibited greater flexibility in interpreting policy and enforcing boundaries in areas in which they needed information to innovate and adapt. Originator-supplied keywords include mobility rewards organizational communication and perceptions of organization.
