We might attribute the expanding scope of HRM to the alignment of choices made on other management variables relative to internal contingencies. The data were collected from 602 large organizations in three countries (Great Britain, France, Canada). The study shows that the relationship between compensation policies and other HRM practices (horizontal contingencies) leads to a higher perception of efficiency of the HRM director than the alignment with other management variables (vertical and transversal contingencies). However, the expanding scope of HRM practices did not appear complete. Our empirical results also show that such practices oriented toward individual performance and the openness of the compensation system, regardless of the organizational context, have a positive impact on perceptions of efficiency
