Abstract

At times, HRM must be re-active, dealing with problems or opportunities as they arise, yet leading thinkers stress the importance of being pro-active, helping to shape the strategies of the organisation. A pro-active role means identifying, analysing and implementing solutions to problems and opportunities before they arise. How can these two roles be reconciled? What mechanisms can ensure that reactive and proactive roles support the business strategy?
