(HR Analytics & Career Development)
To what extent is HRM different from conventional personnel management? Is it the same phenomenon in a different name and modern version? To capture the theme of my essay, I will first distinguish between HRM and Personnel Management. Thereafter I will provide a general overview of management, interrogate the four dimensions of HRM, i.e., inception, development, motivation and maintenance. It is also my intention to delve into the peculiarities of personnel management, which has at some stage grown both as an academic discipline and as a field of application in work organizations.
Whether the two disciplines are similar or different, that will be discussed just before
the conclusion. It is important to express the reflection of HR metrics on such
matter. [900 words
