They serve as a heuristic device that help us to discover and understand the world for explaining the nature and significance of key HR practices. Being the first model, this emphasizes just four functions and their interrelatedness. The four functions are: selection, appraisal, development and rewards.
Four major models have been identified for human resource management and all these serve many purposes. They provide a characterization of human resource management that establishes variables and relationships to be researched. They serve as a heuristic device-something to help us discover and understand the world for explaining the nature and significance of key HR practices. The four functions are selection, appraisal, development, and rewards. These four constituent components of human resource management and are expected to contribute to organizational effectiveness. The Fombrun model is incomplete as it focuses on only four functions of HRM and ignores all environmental and contingency factors that impact HR functions.

There are many similarities with the Harvard 'map' but the Michigan model has a harder, less humanistic edge, holding that employees are resources in the same way as any other business resource. People have to be managed in a similar manner to equipment and raw materials. They must be obtained as cheaply as possible, used sparingly, and developed and exploited as much as possible. The Michigan model is also known as the 'matching model' or 'best-fit' approach to human resource management. In essence, it requires that human resource strategies have a tight fit to the overall strategies of the business. As such, it limits the role of HR to a reactive, organizational function and under-emphasizes the importance of societal and other external factors.
Human Resources models help to explain the role of HR in the business. In this article, we will go over the 5 most practical HR models. The model shows a causal chain that starts with the business strategy and ends, through the HR processes, with improved financial performance. The model thus shows how HR activities that are aligned with organizational strategy lead to business performance. According to this model, HR will only be effective if its strategy is aligned with business strategy in line with the best-fit theory. HR strategy is thus derived from the overall strategy.

At the rhetorical level many organisations espouse the "soft" version of Human Resource Management HRM that focuses on treating employees as valued assets and a source of competitive advantage.
Human resource management HRM has frequently been described as a concept with two distinct forms: soft and hard. The soft model emphasizes individuals and their self-direction and places commitment, trust, and self-regulated behaviour at the centre of any strategic approach to people. In contrast, the hard model stresses the rationalism of strategic fit and places emphasis on performance management and an instrumental approach to the management of individuals. This chapter first analyzes the conflicts and tensions both between and within the soft and hard models. It then reports on the findings of an in-depth empirical study which allow us to review and challenge the theoretical foundations upon which the soft and hard models are based. Human resource management has frequently been described as a concept with two distinct forms: soft and hard.

Беккер понимал, что через несколько секунд его застрелят или собьют, и смотрел вперед, пытаясь найти какую-нибудь лазейку, но шоссе с обеих сторон обрамляли крутые, покрытые гравием склоны.
