The 7 G Framework of HRM Practices

Prof. Ajantha S. Dharmasiri developed a very intuitive framework for HRM practices or functions. It is known as the "Seven G Framework".
In brief, the Seven Gs are as follows: Goal, Get, Grow, Give, Glue, Glow, and Guard.
Now I will briefly describe what each G entails:
  1. GOAL: What needs to be done to achieve the strategic goals of the organization?
  2. GET: Getting the right people in the organization to achieve the goals.
  3. GROW: Developing the people through training and development.
  4. GIVE: Giving reasonable remuneration for their contribution.
  5. GLUE: Engaging employees to stay in your organization.
  6. GLOW: Let them express themselves and shine in their career while contributing in your purpose.
  7. GUARD: Having proper policy framework in place for employee protection.

My post ends here. But I am curious to know your opinion regarding it. Do you think the 7-G framework portrays all the main functions of HR well? If not, let us know what do you think it's missing? Thanks.
