Human Resources Management comparing to Personnel Management
Using human resources management approach, we assume that it is not possible to have universal model which works in any organization. We are talking about a set of concepts, methods and techniques from which you can select a specific one. Each organization has different set of methods. This approach is an extension of the earlier concept - personnel management.
While the personnel management focus on organizing, consequence and realizing separate functions, human resources management focus on customer, cooperation between supervisor and employee and integrated control functions.
