It also helps to clarify why widely popular models with clearly prescribed structures take on a variety of forms in practice and are dynamic. We contribute to theorizing on the HRM function by introducing a dynamic, tension-centered perspective, based on paradox theory, that builds on previous research on the organization of the HRM function and the challenges facing HRM practitioners working within any particular model to organize HRM work. We discuss the limitations of our study, as well as offering suggestions for future research and practical implications from paradox theory for HRM practitioners dealing with tensions in their work.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley||Journal:||Human Resource Management||Volume:||57||Issue:||5||Start page:||1111||End page:||1126||Copyright (published version):||2017 Wiley||Keywords:||Dynamism; HRM; Organization; Paradox; Responses; Tensions; Variety||DOI:||10.1002/hrm.21893||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
