ABSTRACT
The present trend of globalization, liberalization, technological advancement, and effective knowledge economy has created an emerging emphasis on human resources (HR) and their contribution towards organizational competitiveness and performance. Strategic HR development basically requires identification of suitable Human Resource Development (HRD) activities and programs and aligns those to the employees' performance, so that organizations can understand how strategic selection of HRD activities can rationalize HRD expenses and also benefit the organization, achieving its strategic intents. Strategic Human Resource Development (SHRD) activities when aligned with the individual employees' development and growth needs can also motivate them to perform and deliver the best results. SHRD practices also support the organizational initiatives to face the real challenges of globalization and competition, as they can continue to sustain their competitive advantage through development of requisite competencies of their HR.
