Abstract: To begin with, the most important factors that affect organizational performance is human resources. While research on strategic human resource management (SHRM) has established a significant relationship between high-performance human resource practices (HPHRPs) and firm-level financial and market outcomes, few studies have considered the HPHRPs' important role in enhancing mechanisms, resulting in improved firm performance. According to the researchers, the bundles of practices are more effective than mere one practice, moreover, most early works on HPHRPs examine only the direct relationship between a set of management practices and performance outcomes. Though, our goal is to this study some less discussed factors that can lead to positive relationships between high-performance human resource management and organizational performance. To do this, by reviewing critical literature on human resource management, we suggest a dominant mechanism through which HPHRPs affect performance. Our suggestions are illustrated in a proposed model based on literature review. Therefore, the concepts developed in this paper need to be empirically tested. Implications and contributions are also discussed.
