Gestion stratégique des ressources humaines : recherche théorique et empirique sur la durabilité de la relation entre stratégie RH et performance

Abstract : For the two last decades, an abundant literature has been entirely devoted to the treatment of the place of the HRM in the implication of human resources for the achievement of strategic objectives and the improvement of the firms' performance. This literature concerns the Strategic Human Resources Management (SHRM). If the majority of the research carried out in the study of the bonds between the HRM and firms' effectiveness led to significant results, these studies remained silent on the question of resistance of this effect in a long time. Currently, firms are concerned about the way to maintain their performance as long as possible, taking into account the running risks. The sustainability of the performance thus becomes the managers' major concern. By raising this issue, our research aims to increase former studies and to provide a complementary light to the strategic human resources management. "Configurational" approach of human resources should be the conceptual foundation to find an answer to this issue. This approach stipulates that a strategy of human resources made up of internal and external coherent HRM practices with the strategy business, is likely to ensure a long term performance. Our method is based upon longitudinal data coming from REPONSE survey led by DARES and BVA Institute for the periods of 1997-1998 and 2004-2005. This survey was carried out into a representative sample of 2978 French Business Units of more than 20 employees in 1998, and 2930 Business Units of the same size in 2005. The principle static and dynamic results of this research show that simultaneous associations between HRM systems and the four dimensions of the performance (profitability, innovation, absenteeism and social climate) stand up to the introducion of temporal shift. This conclusion supports the relevance of human resource strategy's coherence like an asset in the maximization of sustainable performance.
