Strategic human resource management focuses on maximizing the potential of a company’s workforce through strategic planning, talent management, leadership development, organizational design, and performance management. In the past, strategic HR management was an administrative function. Today, HR professionals play a critical role in ensuring that the organization has the right people that help improve business performance and ensure that it delivers on its mission.
