Sammanfattning

This study investigated factors influencing line managers' and professionals' perceptions of the HRM capabilities of the HR function. Using a sample of 913 managers and professionals in subsidiaries of 11 Nordic multinational corporations, we tested the extent to which features of the unit's HRM system, attitudes of the unit's general manager and characteristics of the HR manager helped explain the perceived HRM capabilities. The analysis revealed that perceived HRM practice visibility and HRM inducements (the link between individual performance and HRM-related benefits) were strong predictors of individual perceptions of the HR function's HRM capabilities. The use of e-HRM and the most senior manager's attitudes towards the unit's HRM practices were also significantly related to perceived HRM capabilities.
