And in this session, you learned that the HRM function consists of a variety of actors, including line managers, HR specialists and employees. And the distribution of HRM activities across these actors is a strategic decision and depends, amongst others, on the value and the uniqueness of each individual HRM activity. Because so many actors are involved in HRM implementation processes the need for control in coordination is paramount. And to realize this, and make sure that different HRM actors, like line managers, employees and HR specialists work together affectively, control mechanisms are needed. And in this session you also learned that control mechanisms can be subdivided into formal and informal control mechanisms.
