The study used the descriptive approach, through which the researcher developed a scale to answer the questions of the study. The study sample consisted of 120 employees in infrastructure contracting companies, they were divided into non-overlapping groups. The results showed the impact of strategic planning for human resources on the performance of construction project management and its contribution to raising the level of readiness of construction companies in facing external challenges and enabling them to compete with international companies, in addition to the contribution of strategic planning in facing the negative effects resulting from the Corona pandemic. The results are according to the company's age, capital, and the size of the company's project. The results of the study also showed that strategic human resource planning helps project management officials in the early detection of expected danger areas and attracts well-equipped workers with the appropriate skills to work efficiently.
