This paper aims to introduce the concept of shared-value and propose how it could be applied in the field of human resource management (HRM).


Conceptual paper presenting key ideas.


The ability to connect the interests of people and the business is seemingly within the remit of human resource (HR), yet the people management function has been slow to implement the shared-value creation idea. A principles-based approach to HRM, underpinned by a body of knowledge, is proposed as the way forward.


While many other professions have adopted a principles-based approach to setting standards of good practice, the development of principles of human capital management is nascent. This paper discusses the feasibility of this approach for the HR profession.
