This study concerns HRD policymaking in companies. More specifically it explores whether so-called vertical integration of HRD policy at different organizational levels occurs within companies. Findings indicate a virtual absence of HRD policymaking or strategic HRD aligning, in all aspects and levels within the companies studied. It is thus problematical to harmonize HRD policy processes in a vertical direction.
