HR strategy articulates what organisations plan to do about managing its people. It supports the overall direction of the organisation and seeks to build its capability. Many organisations do not define their HR strategy and make ad hoc interventions rather than attempting to apply HR policies and procedures in a coherent way. The HR strategy considers what the organisation is trying to achieve and defines how people need to be managed to make this happen. It takes in resourcing, learning and development, performance mangement, reward, employee relations and organisational culture.
