Importance of the concept of supply chain management since the new millennium has significantly increased between the researchers and practitioners. It has been a popular subject to rapidly increasing research in the fields of logistics, marketing and operations management from many different points of views. Management of human resources is recognized as a critical factor in the successful implementation of supply chain strategies for businesses. Therefore, developing a systematic approach across the supply chain to ensure effective management of human resources is critical for businesses to manage to reach their goals and achieve the success as it would also lead to developing and sustaining a competitive advantage in the global market.
In this context, this study aims to examine the relationship between strategic human resources management and supply chain management and develop an understanding on the importance of human resource management for supply chain management field. Accordingly, the concepts of human resource management and supply chain management are analyzed theoretically by evaluating various elements of human resources management, and by analyzing the findings of some research conducted in the literature which revealed that human resource management practices and strategies could have a significant positive impact on success of businesses in the field of supply chain management by helping them to meet their objectives and goals. As of theoretical character of the study, the paper is based on the systematic review of the literature by making use of secondary data like journals, papers, websites and various magazines as the primary sources to bring an explanation to the correlation between both variables.

The Supply Chain architectures are being redesigned in the context of digital transformation by the material impact of Artificial intelligence (AI), digitization, blockchain
and automation. Driving value from data across intelligent supply chain workflows and deploying AI Governance and ethic models to create and capture new value are part of the progression path as organizations grow their capabilities. We are witnessing: effectively advancing supply-chain management in global operations decisions by seeing digitization as a win-win proposition to provide strategic assets and engines for innovation; creating new paths to value by using Digitization combined with Synchromodality based on optimization algorithms and dynamic orchestration with hybrid multicloud as strategic advantage in de-stressed logistics in establishing sustainable networking, collaboration and trust within the core of customer relationship concept.
