• Over the past decade, there has been an increasing emphasis by researchers and practitioners alike on the importance of human resources as one of the key ways of gaining a competitive advantage for a firm. Consequently, numerous researches have been conducted on business strategy and its effect on human resource management within the context of firm performance. Most of the research on this theme have been conducted in USA, and very less number of research are conducted in the context of emerging economy like India.
