Human Resource Management (HRM) is a strategic and coherent approach to the management of an organization.s most valued assets: the people working there who individually and collectively contribute to the  achievement of its objective. The assumptions underpinning the practice of human resource management are that people are the organization.s key resource, and organizational performance largely depends on them, if, therefore, an appropriate range of human resource policies and processes are developed and implemented effectively, human resources will make a substantial impact on firm.s performance used. The objective of this study is to examine the paradigm shift shaping human resource management for improved organizational effectiveness in Nigeria. Literature survey  method was adopted to discuss issues raised in the study. The paper  demonstrated that a changing environment today is influencing what  human resource managers do and the models for engagement of human capital. There is more emphasis on knowledge work, and therefore, on building human capital, the knowledge, education, training, skills, and expertise of an organization.s employees. The paper recommended that human resource managers should shift their focus from providing transactional services to providing top management with decisions that inform and support organizational effectiveness in Nigerian organizations.
