Alternative Approaches and Strategies of Human Resources Development

Edited by: T.V. Rao, K.K. Verma, Anil K. Khandelwal, E. Abraham S.J.

There are many ways to develop human resources and harness their potential for organizational growth. In the past, organizations have used training as the main mechanism and strategy for developing human resources. In the last five years many organizations have started evolving and experimenting with different mechanisms and strategies of developing employees. These include performance appraisals, potential development exercises, performance feedback and counselling systems, career planning and development, drug interventions, role analysis exercises, etc. These are in addition to training being extended to unionized categories. The papers presented in this volume are first-hand descriptions of these experiences and experiments. The organizations covered include private and public sectors, multinational organizations, and banks. Only those experiences that are considered new and different have been presented. *** "As technological advances continue to transform the working world, promoting teamwork-focused Human Resources development and maximizing the potential of one's employees is more important than ever. This anthology of essays by learned authors isn't presented in a vacuum - there are also suggested activities and implementation strategies for putting alternative approaches to Human Resources Development into practice....especially recommended for college library collections and Human Resources reading lists, and a 'must read' for professionals in the field." --Midwest Book Review, MBR Bookwatch: February 2017, Dunford's Bookshelf [Subject: Human Resources]
