A co-operative needs membership that understands the need for investment in its human capital, management, board, staff, members and other significant policy. Members must also be aware of issues concerning the successful delivery of their specific social and economic needs. A strong co-operative culture at the heart of the organisation thus needs to be developed in order to have a successful co-operative HRM function contributing positively to the effectiveness of the co-operatives. If properly applied and managed HRM strategies will provide a better fit in a membership-based organisation and could provide co-operative with a genuine competitive advantage.
