    The main aim of this paper is to analyse the impact of human resource practices on business results. This study will follow the universalist and contingency approaches propounded in the literature (Delery and Doty, 1996; McMahan, Virick and Wright, 1999) in order to confirm their validity in the specific context of Spain and for financial institutes within the Social Economy sector: Credit Cooperatives and Savings Banks. As for the contingency approach, we will introduce a new variable into the strategic process to moderate the human resource system - results equation: the integration of Human Resource Management. The efficacy of the personnel policies that are applied is conditioned by the consideration of human resources in the strategic formulation process. Prior to this analysis, we evaluate the direct effect of the aforementioned integration on the results along the lines of works such as those of Golden and Ramanujan (1985), Lengnick-Hall and Lengnick-Hall (1988) or Brockbank (1999).
