Abstract

The field of human resource management is ever emerging and evolving. Since its inception, it has faced abundant hues and cries. The purpose of this study is to give a holistic and integrative view of HRM concepts and usages. So, this study is based on a meta-analysis of the literature of current major practices used in different ways. The study examines the social exchange theory, the resource-based view of the organization, human capital theory, descriptive study, normative study and strategic theories of human resource management. The comparison of these studies assists HR practitioners to develop the contingencies and to fit the HR policies according to the context and requirements of the organization. An implied but unproven hypothesis symbolizes that good contextual HRM fit may lead to the vigorous development of the organization.
