In the business world today, increasing numbers of companies (think Apple, Google, Netflix, etc...) are focusing their hiring efforts on recruiting the human talent that will best compliment their existing team, seamlessly integrate into the culture of the company, and help the company meet its strategic vision and goals.
To accomplish these goals, the organization must have the right combination of individuals on their team. Enter — the field of strategic human resource management.
