Therefore, the problem that embraced two variables: human resource management strategies included five indicators: (Job analysis and design strategy (Appendix Table 1A), staffing and recruitment strategy (Appendix Table 1B), training strategy human resource planning (Appendix Table 1C) performance evaluation strategy (Appendix Table 1D) and strategic human resources planning (Appendix Table 1E) as the independent variable. Either the dependent variable is regulatory restraint strategies have included three indicators (employees reduction strategy, work redesign strategy, systematic strategies).

People working in organizations with a view to achieving organizational strategies and business design and production of goods and services (Braton & Gold, 2003). So, we can define it as human energies that can achieve success and that contribute to achieving efficiency and effectiveness of the organization.

It was the strategic approach to human resources management which concerns all regulatory activities affecting the behavior of individuals and helps the organization to achieve its goals (Inyang, 2010). Also (Armstrong, 2009) refers It was the method for making decisions about the intentions and plans of the organization in the form of policies and programmers on human resources. Based on the above, we could define the strategy of human resource as the selection of the appropriate strategies for human resources management that is compatible with the organization's strategy to increase the organization's ability to achieve the competitive superiority.

Job analysis process provides information relevant to each of the human resource management and organization and the workers themselves is so important (Al-Saedy, 2017):

    1. Planning human resources needs of the organization.

  7. Performance strategy: It is formal organizational process implemented by comparing actual performance of individual or team with the expected performance according to the substantive or personal items which makes it a key role in human resources management and development. As the organization's performance evaluation strategy not working alone it is a part of an integrated system of care to identify successful value-added utilization of human resources (Braton & Gold, 2003). Performance evaluation steps include the following: Determined performance standards, measuring performance, comparing actual performance standards, discussion of evaluation findings with personnel affirmative action and corrective action (Al-Saedy, 2017).
