Businesses that aim to align their human resources strategy (HRS) with their business strategy tend to be more profitable and more efficient than those that don't. This report argues that the process of aligning HRS with business strategy should be based on circumstance (contingency) rather than a one-size-fits-all approach (universalist). Consequently, it points the reader down some specific, 'primrose' path where strategy and HR can be aligned for benefits all round.
