Experts state that a new critical function has emerged for the HR department called as the practice of knowledge sharing. The penetration of KM it’s happening either voluntarily or not. The responsible inside the organization must reconsider priorities and align to business trends, employees’ necessities or society requirements and expectations. The mission of KM is to give more credit to information, workers and the organization by extracting, using and creating knowledge (the order has also a logic). Both KM and HRM focus on individuals/employees. Using the research undertaken in a regional approach, we identified the perception of KM among HR executives and top managers. We strive, starting from the results of the research to underline some improvements that can be done for both HRM and KM functions within the companies. The mutual goal for HRM and KM is motivating the employees to work their best with the information they have, to be innovative while doing their job and to share knowledge and experiences without giving away the competition spirit. The paper approaches in the first part the perspectives of KM and also its connection to HRM. The main part of the work intends to establish some common directions in order to better integrate the cooperation of KM and HRM within the organization. The concluding remarks are bold and optimistic as there is much more to be done.
