The increasingly frequent involvement of companiesâ€™ line managers in human resource (HR) activities leads us to investigate the strategic value that these managers grant HR. This research focusses on the line managersâ€™ perception of the strategic importance of HR, versus the perception of HR managers themselves, as a relevant factor in line managersâ€™ own involvement within the execution of HR-related tasks. If line managers do not perceive the relevance and strategic importance of HR and its key role in the companyâ€™s strategy and performance, it is difficult to guarantee the managersâ€™ commitment and effectiveness in HR management implementation. Based on interviews with HR development and line managers in 100 Spanish firms, we verified discrepancies in HR versus line managersâ€™ perceptions, confirming that the assessment given by the line managers is slightly lower and, in turn, providing us with references to draw useful conclusions for a successful implementation of HR practices.
