Part of the answer lies in the perspective brought to bear upon HRM: there is a diversity in the HRM debate, derived from the manner in which particular participants view the essential elements of HRM and what they believe it is representing, that colours the discussion. For the purposes of this analysis four broad perspectives are set out here: ● ● ● ● that HRM is no more than a renaming of basic personnel functions, which does little that is different from the traditional practice of personnel management; that HRM represents a fusion of personnel management and industrial relations that is managerially focused and derives from a managerial agenda; that HRM represents a resource-based conception of the employment relationship, incorporating a developmental role for the individual employee and some elements of cost minimisation; that HRM can be viewed as part of the strategic managerial function in the development of business policy, in which it plays both a determining and a contributory role and is particularly so for multinational firms.
