Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) scholars have determined a consistent positive association between Human Resources (HR) systems and organizational performance. However, scholars have called for further understanding of the mediating mechanisms that explain the positive relationship between HR systems and organizational performance, suggesting that these unknown mechanisms are the ‘black box’ of SHRM research. This paper will mainly focus on the underlying mediating mechanisms in the ‘black box’, also discuss about some limitations in existing scholarly research.
