Implementation of HRM depends on the organization’s strategic constellation. However, there is a little empirical evidence about the actual relationships between this strategic constellation and HRM outcomes like the quality of working life (QWL) of personnel. By employing a large personnel survey from Finnish municipalities, decision-maker survey and municipalities’ strategic documents we aim to clarify the interrelationships between the strength of the strategic human resource management (SHRM) and different HR indices like involvement, renewal, trust, and QWL. We conclude, that bearing in mind the “fit” between organizational culture and adopted HRM strategy, applied QWL measure may be an adequate tool while assessing the success of organization’s HRM practices.
