Strategic HRM at Whole Foods

Whole Foods Market Inc. is an American supermarket chain exclusively featuring foods without artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners, and hydrogenated fats. Visit their website, www.wholefoodsmarket.com, and read about the company, its mission, and values, culture, etc. Recently, Amazon acquired Whole Foods. Amazon has a much different organizational culture, business strategy, and approaches regarding human resources. Identify what type of general business strategy Whole Foods used prior to the acquisition to compete. Compare and contrast that strategy with Amazons and comment on how the merger between the two organizations went. What type of things, from an HR perspective, needed to be considered so that it could have gone more smoothly? Examine some of the scholarly journal literature regarding the business and HR strategies, HR practices, etc. and how they need to be considered in a situation like this. More specifically, use this literature to substantiate the discussion of how the business strategy impacts and aligns with some of the other human resource management (HRM) functions (i.e., recruitment, selection, training performance management, pay, etc.). Use top-tier peer-reviewed journals. Cite all of the references that you use in APA format in-text and on a reference page. Double spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font, with 1-inch margins.
