Human Resource Policies, Accounting and Organisational Performance

CIMA’s study examines the relationship between human resource management (HRM), management accounting and organisational performance.


Analysed within are the ways HR managers and management accountants are working closely together to develop strategic plans and annual budgets. In some of the cases, they also developed performance-related bonus schemes in close collaboration and were involved in frequent communication on decision making.


Some of the findings include:

  • A mix of financial and non-financial measures leads to improved organisational performance.
  • When employees are viewed as assets rather than simply costs, there is a positive impact on an organisation’s performance.
  • The role of employees is critical in achieving an organisation’s targeted performance.
  • Teamwork has a major impact on an organisation’s performance.
  • Organisational culture (with regards to employees) has a major impact on an organisation’s performance.Specific HR policies can be linked to an organisation’s performance.
