A firm's talent philosophy and business strategy influence the human resource strategy that guides its staffing strategy. As explained in Staffing to Support Business Strategy, this philosophy reflects how organizations think about their employees. Its business strategies are created to leverage resources and capabilities in ways that result in superior value creation compared to competitors. Its competitive advantage depends on its ability to leverage the resources and capabilities that derive from the talent it is able to hire and retain. How it positions itself to compete in the marketplace determines the competitive advantage it needs to create and the staffing strategies it needs to pursue to acquire and retain the appropriate talent. A company's choice and execution of its staffing strategy influences the number and types of people it hires, and thus its ability to maintain a competitive advantage and execute its business strategy. This book also discusses the nine strategic staffing decisions all firms must make.
