We are first humans i.e., we have our own emotions, which the organisation functions. Since no individual can work feelings, perceptions, attitudes, values, judgements, back- isolate and has to work with team, the need for personnel grounds, educations etc., management becomes all the more pivotal. Therefore to cater to all these attributes and motivate employees to work in a proper channel personnel mgmt was evolved. Objectives After reading this chapter, you should know: We all know an organization is a place where two or more persons come together and work to achieve a common goal. • How did the Personnel Management evolve. There can be any sort of organizations like manufacturing units, • What do you understand by Personnel Management. service sectors, government organizations, public limited • How did various traditions lead to the development of companies etc. Personnel Management.

All these organizations which exist today, exist for some reason Nature and the Development of Personnel Management. i.e., they try to serve some purpose in the society e.g. if hospital Growth of Personnel Management: exist it tries to provide health services to the people.

In order to achieve the goals a well-run organization works out a The ancients, with their Stone axes, adages and other flint tools, set of rules sometimes called policies, programmes, rules, may not have appreciated the principle of “transfer of skill from regulations, procedures or guidelines and sanctions.

Another consideration, motivators provided opportunities for personal realization (achievement, responsibility, advancement, interest- ing work, recognision and sense of controlling one’s destiny. Mc.Douglas Theory X and Theory Y: Theory X stands for the set of traditional beliefs generally held, while Theory Y is concerned with a diff philosophy or under- standing of man at work. The theory X involves strict supervision, coercion and the threat, which might breed organized worker-protest, restriction of output. The subordinates may exploit theory and therefore he suggests the carrot and stick approach to motivate work people. Personnel Specialists and Welfare Era: With the Introduction of factory system, thousands of persons began to be employed under one roof and had to be controlled if the goals of an organisation were to be achieved. For Admin work, clerks or manual employees had to be recruited. These were entrusted with the responsibility of hiring men to work of an organisation. Later, they were covered with the recruitment, placement and selection of personnel. With the increase of the size of an organisation, there functions had to be allotted to a full time ‘manager’. With further increase in the no of employees a separate personnel executive had to be appointed to develop systematic methods, determine wage rates; develop job descipline and descriptions and job specifica- tion. Later his duties were enlarged to cover additional responsibilities of looking after the benefits and services provided for the employees. In the course of time, arrange- ments had to be made to train n the existing personnel; and hence a manager for training was also appointed. Ultimately safety experts, physicaians, behavioural researchers labour relations, specialists and others were appointed. Therefore now we can understand that for administrative and organisational effectiveness, it was then found feasible to merge these diff functions into a single position, i.e. the personnel manager and welfare officer. We can know observe that, Organisational planning, manpower planning, manpower selection and other allied problems regarding the management of managers and high talent manpower assumed significance in the organisation. High talent personnel emerged as the key human resources, and personnel management was turned to the existing economic structure. The emphasis is now on “Management Of Human Resources” so now we can see that personnel mgmt has gone through vast changes. Beginning with ‘welfare work’ its now developed technical competence in manpower planning and other related jobs, besides acquiring expertise in such matter as wage & salary administration, Employee benefit schemes and services, training and development and other specialised activities.” 5HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT LESSON 3: PROFESSIONALISM IN PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT With the passage o f time, personnel management has become Economic Depression (1893): Great Depression of 1893 mature and professional. prevented further welfare movements alleviating the sufferings of workers.

Drafting and directing training programmes for all levels of employees, arranging for their on-the-job, office and vestibule training, holding seminar and conferences providing for educational and vocational counselling and appraising employee potential and performance are undertaken under this function. 3.

The integration function: after the employee has been procured, his skill and ability developed and monetary compensation determined, the most important, Yet difficult of the personal management is to bring about an “integration” of human resources with organisation, and to cope with inevitable reconciliation of individual, societal, and organisation interests. It rests upon the premise that significant overlapping of interests do exist in the organisation in such programmes as job enlargement, jobevaluation, variable compensation plans. The greater they overlap, the more productivity would coincide with employees that they would prefer to avoided assignment to narrow and respective tasks, meeting high output standards, acceptance of managerial decisions. For this reason, the organisation has disciplinary action programmes as well as some freedom to do away with the services of particular employees. On the other hand, there are certain things that employees desire which the organisation is reluctant to provide, e.g. increased wages, totally, safe working conditions time off with pay, shorter hours of work, premium pay for overtime work etc. 5. The maintenance function deals with sustaining and improving the conditions that have become established. Specific problems of maintaining the physical conditions of employees (health and safety measures) and employee service programmes are the responsibility of the personnel department.

Develop an organisational work culture where: superior- subordinate relationships, team work and collaboration among different units are strong and contribute to the professional well-being, motivation and pride.” Udai Pareek and T.V. Rao Thus, from this definition it is clear that HRD is all the more evolved field than HRM. Human resource management is the subsystem of the total management system. This is the responsibility of all managers, irrespective of their functions, disciplines and levels. HRM is primarily concerned with management of people, individuals or groups at work., as also their inter-relationship. It is not the sole responsibility of personnel specialists. Indeed line managers are equally and directly responsible for managing human resources working with them. They have to lead , guide and counsel people working with them and act as engines of motivation. HRD OD and IR are separate aspects of broader concept of HRM. However, in reality, each of these aspects overlap in practice, into the other and cannot be viewed in isolation. MRM practices, to succeed, must go currently with HRD, OD inter- ventions. Sound IR systems cannot be visualized without good HRD practices. Human resources developments a process to help people to grow. It is an approach to facilitate individual growth i.e. to transform a person a total person. HR is an asset and HRD is a means to attain better organizational effectiveness.
