Alignment of HRM and Business Strategies 2 In this paper, I proposed how I would ensure the HR strategy in alignment with the business strategy; described the HR job positions and responsibilities listed for that HR department; determined which HR job positions I would prefer and why. Also, I analyzed how the selected company can establish HRM strategies to improve competitive advantage, and proposed three ways that the company can increase diversity. Propose how you would ensure the HR strategy is in alignment with the business strategy. With rapid changes in the business environment, organizations are increasingly looking at human resource as a unique asset that can provide sustained competitive advantage.

The hotel guests expect to have a clean environment to enjoy their stay at the hotels, the contribution these two positions makes to the smooth operations of the hotels are priceless. Employing people in these positions will require job analysis, because “job analysis is often seen as a first step to appropriately recruiting, hiring, training, and compensating workers.” (Stewart and Brown, 2012, p.128) This will allow employers to choose the right employees to perform the right jobs functions.

In the same way, the maintenance position is also an entry level position; its staffs are responsible for the keeping of the hotels common areas. The maintenance staffs use tools such as screwdrivers and toilet plunger. Both teams work together under a on the go working condition as hotel guests are checking in and out almost at the same
