This research report investigates the role of management accounting (MA) in relation to strategic human resource management (SHRM). The two main objectives of the report were:

  1. The existing MA information provided within the context of the SHRM process.
  2. Managers' and accountants' views on what role MA information could play in SHRM in future.
