Sylwia Wiśniewska, Kamil Wiśniewski

Abstract


The notions of human resources management (HRM) and knowledge management (KM) are frequently occurring concepts in today’s organisational world. Theoretical papers and numerous case studies have illustrated that human resources management and knowledge management are linked. The growing importance of knowledge management in an organization influences the functions of human resources management. Effective HRM can significantly support the development of a knowledge-based organization. The aim of the article is to indicate the specificity of human resources management in a knowledge-based organization. The article consists of three chapters. The first chapter contains a theoretical discussion of key issues, such as: human resources management, knowledge, knowledge management and knowledge-based organization. The second chapter of the article presents the relationship between human resources management and knowledge management in an organization. Moreover, the chapter contains the analysis of the characteristics of human resources management in a knowledge-based organization. The third chapter describes innovativeness, which is the key attribute of knowledge workers, and should be supported by HRM activities.
