Horizontal & Vertical Alignment

  • Vertical Alignment: the degree to which the content of an HRM practice focuses on, embeds, and communicates the desired performance competencies

    • Example: Is the degree to which job applicants possess the competencies assessed in the teacher selection (hiring) process?

  • Horizontal Alignment: the degree to which HRM practices are mutually supportive and reinforcing
