As organizations move toward a more customized approach to human capital management in the quest for high performance, they face trade-offs and challenges. In particular, although the four workforce-of-one techniques (outlined in research notes four through seven in this series) make it possible for organizations to achieve a greater degree of fit between individual employees and various human capital management practices, they must sacrifice a degree of control and transparency, and they may face challenges with respect to resource allocation and perceived lack of fairness. This research note explores those challenges and suggests ways of overcoming them. This is the ninth research note in a series of 13.
