Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) covers the entire HR strategies used by organizations and attempts to quantify their influence on the performance of the organization. SHRM is a process for evolving and executing HR strategies that are associated with business plans and help the organization attain its objectives. This paper will explore the impression of SHRM in organization skillset and the link between strategic human resource management practices and organizational performance while using the resource-based view (RBV) approach in organizations. Existing research has highlighted or recommended that organizations use either a comprehensive and integrated approach or the best fit strategy to acquire a strategic advantage. The significance of SHRM for businesses will be discussed in this paper. The purpose of this paper is to inform people by providing an insight into the different components connected with Personnel Management and SHRM. It was possible to find many studies on these topics, and the most relevant ones were taken into consideration. To avoid the accumulation of too much data, redundancy, and irrelevance to present activities, the period of the 1990s has been taken into consideration. The method of collecting data is secondary, hence, the majority of the literature was sourced from internet databases and reputable Indian and international books and publications.
