Abstract

This paper examines the incidence and effectiveness of strategic human resource management (SHRM) in Canada based on a survey of 68 municipalities in eight provinces with populations exceeding 38,500. The findings reveal that SHRM is being practiced in a small majority of Canadian municipalities and the majority of the respondent municipalities with SHRM have fully integrated their human resources function within the strategic planning process, which suggests that there is significant potential for the improvement of organizational effectiveness.
