Download and read online Organization Staffing and Work Adjustment in PDF and EPUB This volume explores the concepts, themes, methods, and procedures of organization staffing. As Tziner notes at the outset, although organizations usually attempt to predict the likely future performance of each applicant in terms of productivity, rarely do they consider the likelihood of the applicants finding gratification in their work-related needs and aspirations--running the risk that extremely talented staff may eventually abandon the organization because of a lack of personal fulfillment. Tziner offers a functional and integrated conceptual framework that will enable organizations to maximize the probability that staffing decisions will result in optimal work adjustment and the enhancement of organizational productivity.

Download and read online Decision Support for Team Staffing in PDF and EPUB How can the selection of individuals to configure teams be improved with the help of information technology? Due to organizational trends, team-based work structures gain importance and increase the demand for staffing highly effective teams. However, existing human resource management systems have often not yet been adapted to support HR decision makers in this task and IS support for team staffing is rather scarce. Existing systems only consider whether a person has the required technical skills and abilities for a job. Those systems (1) are not able to capture the latent aspects that typically underlie personnel selection decisions, (2) do not consider candidate preferences and (3) especially neglect to consider the match between the person and the team members in terms of interpersonal compatibility.This book presents a decision support system based on an automated recommendation approach for providing a pre-selection of candidates that fit best with a specific job and with future team members. The system contributes to literature by proposing an IS-supported approach for the selection of individuals for teams and to practice by offering time and cost savings for HR professionals.

Download and read online Career Development in PDF and EPUB Career Development: A Human Resource Development Perspective offers a strategic framework that demonstrates the role of career development within the human resource function. It goes beyond conventional interventions and includes key topics such as diversity, work–life balance, and ethics. Historically, the career development literature has been viewed either from the perspective of the individual (how to build a career) or from an economic perspective (how an organization benefits from developing employees). In this book, McDonald and Hite bring together the strengths of both traditions, offering an integrated framework for career development. The theoretical foundation expands on the counseling literature by incorporating the literature from human resource development and related fields. The application section reflects on the wide range of ages and working options that characterize the current and future workplace. The final section of the book addresses career development issues such as managing a diverse, global workforce; ethics; and work–life balance. This book will help prepare human resource development students, scholars, and practitioners to develop and maintain successful career development programs, and to foster more innovative research that advances the discourse.

Download and read online Arbeitnehmerpr ferenzen f r einen internationalen Mitarbeitereinsatz in PDF and EPUB Das Feld der internationalen Mitarbeitereinsätze diversifiziert sich. Während in der Vergangenheit der Prototyp eines internationalen Mitarbeiters männlich und mittleren Alters war und mit seiner nicht berufstätigen Frau und den Kindern von der Unternehmenszentrale für zwei bis fünf Jahre ins Ausland geschickt wurde, trifft all dies heute seltener zu. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht, inwiefern sich die Präferenzen der Mitarbeiter im Hinblick auf die Gegenleistung für einen Auslandseinsatz unterscheiden und welche Vergütungselemente und Zusatzleistungen für welchen Mitarbeitertyp ausschlaggebend sind. Eine Conjoint-Analyse zeigt, dass insbesondere die Nationalität und die Lebenszyklusphase der Mitarbeiter einen großen Einfluss auf ihre Präferenzen haben. Die Arbeit bietet Anhaltspunkte für Unternehmen, ihre Entsendungspraktiken und Vergütungsrichtlinien effektiv und effizient zu gestalten. Doris Warneke, Jahrgang 1977, studierte an der Universität Paderborn, der Jönköping International Business School in Schweden sowie der Universidad de Málaga in Spanien International Business Studies mit den Vertiefungsfächern Personalmanagement, Internationales Management, Englisch und Spanisch.

Download and read online The Oxford Handbook of Organizational Climate and Culture in PDF and EPUB The Oxford Handbook of Organizational Climate and Culture presents the breadth of topics from Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior through the lenses of organizational climate and culture. The Handbook reveals in great detail how in both research and practice climate and culture reciprocally influence each other. The details reveal the many practices that organizations use to acquire, develop, manage, motivate, lead, and treat employees both at home and in the multinational settings that characterize contemporary organizations. Chapter authors are both expert in their fields of research and also represent current climate and culture practice in five national and international companies (3M, McDonald's, the Mayo Clinic, PepsiCo and Tata). In addition, new approaches to the collection and analysis of climate and culture data are presented as well as new thinking about organizational change from an integrated climate and culture paradigm. No other compendium integrates climate and culture thinking like this Handbook does and no other compendium presents both an up-to-date review of the theory and research on the many facets of climate and culture as well as contemporary practice. The Handbook takes a climate and culture vantage point on micro approaches to human issues at work (recruitment and hiring, training and performance management, motivation and fairness) as well as organizational processes (teams, leadership, careers, communication), and it also explicates the fact that these are lodged within firms that function in larger national and international contexts.
Download and read online Worklife Balance in PDF and EPUB Across welfare societies we have seen the emergence of policies and norms for work-life balance alongside rising expectations among working parents to be able to participate in employment and caregiving, and to have more time for family life and leisure. Yet despite this value placed upon work-life balance, working parents face increasing work demands, as well as rising numbers of insecure and precarious jobs, both of which produce a deepening sense of economic uncertainty in everyday life, which has been intensified in the current period of financial crises. The agency and capabilities gap addresses these tensions in work-life balance within families, workplace organizations, and policy frameworks. Inspired by Amartya Sen's capabilities approach, this volume considers not just what individuals do, but also their scope of alternatives to make other choices. It includes rich contextualized studies across Western and Eastern European countries and Japan, with a focus on gendered agency inequalities for work-life balance.
