Advanced Topics in HR: Policies and Practices
Organisations focus on people. As the 21st century begins to unfold, the focus on human resources (HR) within an organisation has never been more critical. HR is a critical success factor for organisations looking to become more effective, focused, and competitive. Since the mid-1990's, organisations have been going through rapid and fundamental changes in the way they do business. Whether one reviews these changes in terms of globalisation, reengineering, TQM, or downsizing, there is more and more evidence to suggest that focusing on human resources within an organisation can provide one of the keys to success.
