Critically discuss and apply with specific examples the three models of SHRM.
In this paper, you are required to do a critical analysis of the three models of SIHRM – i.e. universalist, matching (closed) or matching (open). Additionally, you have to focus on the following aspects:
Explain the limitations of each model
The RBV and institutionalist perspectives on SHRM
The drawbacks of the models
The roles of organisational and national culture in the models
Application of the models
Students should critically evaluate the three models of SIHRM – i.e. universalist, matching (closed) or matching (open). They should describe the limitations of each model. A strong answer will discuss the RBV and institutionalist perspectives on SHRM. It should be emphasised that these models fail to truly encompass the complexities of a modern (global) organisation. The very limited role that organisational and national culture is given in these models should be emphasised – especially for global organisations – tie in with Vicky‘s lectures. Application of the models is required. For example, ‘best practice’ may suggest the use of individual PRP if an organisation wishes to maximise profits – this however, may not be an appropriate type of reward strategy in a more team‐based cultural setting (e.g., Japan).
