Abstract:This study seeks to explore the differnces between intended and realized HRM in the dutch healthcare sector. During the research phase the differnces between intended and realized HRM turned out to be more nuanced and five dimensions to the gap were identified along which the gap can be viewed. Decentralized responsibilities for HR, responsibilities of HRM professionals, governance of HR processes, external environment and control. The research is done in three healthcare organizations in the eastern part of the Netherlands. Semi-structured interviews were held with a director, three HR professionals and one coach. In the interviews questions were asked to deepen the knowledge about intended and realized HRM in the organization and what the roles of different actors are in the HRM implementation process. Transcripts were analyzed for differences between intended and realized HRM and the findings divided over the five dimensions. The organizations were divided into cure and care organizations which seemed to be a clear distinction after analyzing the findings. The use of self-managed teams and different organizational structure was a major influencer in the findings. The research suggests that the clear distinction of intended and realized HRM being HR professional’s vs managers is not valid in all situations and neither is it that simple. The five dimensions as presented give a more nuanced view on the gap.
