Soft HRM

Storey (1989) distinguished between hard and soft forms of HRM, typified by the Michigan and Harvard models, respectively. 'Soft' HRM stresses the 'human' aspects of HRM. Its concerns are with communication and motivation. People are led rather than managed. They are involved in determining and realizing strategic objectives.
