Abstract


The resource-based view argues for the importance of creating a sustainable competitive advantage for organizations to survive and thrive. Through their people, organizations can create a strong diverse and immobile workforce. In this study, we explored the significance of strategic human resource management in Egyptian national organizations. We sought after the views of human resource managers on the activities organizations support to link their human resource management activities to long-term strategies and objectives. The qualitative semi-structured interviews highlighted common activities among the visited organizations. The findings demonstrated that strategic human resource management is still in its infancy stage. Egyptian organizations are losing dynamism because of the poor management of their people.
