Knowledge itself is not of any value to an or- ganization unless these contextual aspects are clearly understood. Much of the knowledge, both tacit and explicit remains largely un- tapped in most organizations; without a tho- rough understanding of context, it will not be possible for HRM or KM to support the de- velopment of management and leadership capabilities to support innovation and crea- tivity. Much work in HRM has focused on identifying facilitators and inhibitors of inno- vation, such as people (e.g. effective leader- ship behaviors associated with particular in- novation phases), structure (e.g. the impact of centralization, formalization, complexity, stratification, lateral communications, matrix structures, requisite variety, double-loop learning) and organizational size or resource availability. Other approaches have found that strategic type, organizational climate and culture, and organizational environment are also important facilitators or inhibitors of in- novation. For example, Taylor et al (2000) using a large-scale survey have shown that the significance of inter-firm networking for innovation differs markedly between industry sectors, and that high innovating organiza- tions often seek long-term, secure relation- ships with employees. Organizations also seem to adopt very different strategies to- wards staff directly involved in innovation as compared with staff in general, with less use of flexible employment policies for this group. An alternative is to see innovation as more dynamic and fluid, allowing for groups, individuals and collaborative partners to dif- fer in their perceptions and interpretations of events.
Depressed leaders feel powerless because of events that have left an unpleasant imprint. They are unsatisfied with this feeling of helplessness. Depressed leaders have a low level of energy and their enthusiasm is down. The organization drifts without direction. Employees are not motivated, they do not finish papers on time or only provide the necessary to the organization, not trying to give their best. Change proposals are met with resistance because senior management do not feel able to implement the measures necessary to revitalize the organization (Elfenbein 2007).
Throughout the last years, EPR has paid a lot of attention to those developments and their consequences for the service provision by organising a whole range of activities (public events, workshops for directors, seminars, discussion and learning groups for management and professionals etc.) on various topics related to this changing environment. One fundamental approach of EPR is to anticipate the future by accepting new realities and by learning from each other in the process of change.
This subsystem includes the information necessary to calculate vacation time, such as hire date, any leaves of absences (paid or unpaid), termination date if applica- ble, and any other events that interrupted service. In addition, the company’s pol- icy details, such as “use it or lose it,” might be programmed into the system. If there are any special rules, then this information is programmed into the system. For example, employees often continue to accumulate vacation on some type of leaves. Other data in this subsystem often include the number of days an employee was absent, leaves of absence, whether these leaves were sabbatical leave, personal leave, or maternity/paternity/paternal/adoption leaves, and the dates the employee started and ended each leave. Policy details would also be programmed; for exam- ple, some companies have a policy that states if absenteeism exceeds a certain number of days, then pay will be decreased by a certain amount.

The first overarching effort at competency study in the hospitality industry was focused in the lodging arena by Tas (1983). In agreement with previous studies (Guglielmino & Carroll, 1979; Katz, 1955; Mariampolski et al., 1980) human relationship or interpersonal skills were deemed not only important, but essential. Tas stated “no previously prepared instrument is suitable for the collection of data needed for this study. Hence, a multi-stage endeavor is used to develop the appropriate instrument” (pp. 31–32). Hence, a job competency skills assessment for future lodging managers was born. Seven distinct competency categories emerged: accounting proce- dures, hotel sales and promotions, housekeeping, hotel front office, personnel (now termed HR), food and beverage, and managerial responsibilities (pp. 32–33). “The study sample was composed of 229 hotel general managers with active members in the American Hotel and Motel Association. A total of 75 (33%) general managers returned the instrument” (p. 82).
The development of the building is increasingly rapid followed by a more varied development process from the stages of planning, design, implementation and building maintenance. The role of building maintenance after construction is increasingly important because of safety, security and comfort factors for users. The basic things about building maintenance as building maintenance management, building component maintenance, mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, building cleanliness and spatial maintenance. Integrated facility management make management of controlling facilities and infrastructure based on working conditions and environment what that needs and can be utilized by all elements, such as for management administration of facilities and infrastructure, maintenance and repair of assets to support work. Facility management integrates the principles of science, business administration and human behavior. As an integrated process management that considers human, processes and places in the context of the organization, includes an efficient physical environment, technology, safety, comfort and occupational health in achieving for more optimal work productivity. Based on the description above that integration facilities management developed supportive more workplace productive process flow by adding value and reducing costs, various services, activities, responsibilities, skills, knowledge and management. Everything is to better integrate existing organizational factors, simplify complicated processes to identify and schedule tasks, records, decisions maker and more. Scope of the future integration of facility management is also considered, account the current conditions of the organization and impact of future innovations and changes. Integration facility management is a computer system platform, designed to enable management facilities to implement a comprehensive maintenance
Abstract: Working in a corporation or with a large organization may definitely lead you to hear the expression "management change" that is used from time to time. In fact, management change has become vehementl6y popular with organizations or corporations that would like to initiate significant change that can include both work tasks and culture at the same time. This kind of change is generally embodied in the employment of a set of processes that aim at the insurance of a significant and systematic change which is supposed to be controlled regularly.One of the main goals of managementchangeregards to the workers who may not accept it easily, since the human capacity and energy thatare relied on to effectuate the necessary change may resist or react against the change and thus affect the efficiency or the accomplishment of the wished change. Consequently, to avoid this kind of problems, consistent efforts and adequate preparation are required so as to convince the workers and make them believe in the importance and the productivity of this change and insist until they accept to put it in use.The administration of both change management and humanresources have become an important factor which are needed to obtain some competitive advantages. The change however, should affect both the moral (mood) of the workers and the material of the factory, since they represent the backbone of it. In other words the responsible should take into account the material side i.e. the inclusion of recent technology and new strategies in addition to the abstract side i.e. the workers and the culture that prevails the factory. Thus, how can we assure a successful change in humanresources?
Advancements in the area of Human Resource Management are recently recognized well in the management literature (Boxall, 1992; Schuler and Jackson, 2008). According to Armstrong (1987), the origin of Human Resource Management can be traced from 1950s. He opined that, the significance of the leadership style with more visionary goal oriented and management of organization’s goals alignment with other functional areas was the need of those days. Further, it was thriven by ‘Behavioural Science Movement’, who stressed on the value concept of Human Resource and were in favor of better quality of worker’s working life. Organizational development movement was the next movement which was followed by Behavioural Science movement during 1970s. On the other hand, Flamholtz (1976) came out with the new theory termed as Human Resource Accounting which explained that Human Resource is one of the vital assets of any organization.
Observing the candidate while he/she is performing activities allows drawing direct conclusions on the scope and level of his/her competencies.
Tests are a broad and internally differentiated group of competency verification methods at the stage
of selection. From the perspective of analysis of all elements of competency (knowledge, skills and attitudes), knowledge tests are the most objective, but also the least useful. They are a good, reliable tool for examining the knowledge of employees in a specific field, but are rarely closely related to the scope of professional tasks, which makes it more difficult to use them as tools for diagnosis of future behaviours and performance of an employee. Psychological tests and competency tests also belong to the group of test tools for competency diagnosis. They are frequently used in personnel counselling and in some enterprises. The advantages of psychological tests in diagnosis of competencies include (Sidor- Rządkowska, 2011, p. 129): standardisation, and related equal chances, as well as the lack of influence of such factors as personal preferences or the recruiter's prejudices, transparency of the evaluation scales and reference scales that facilitates comparing results, verified methodological quality, and an important role in making corrections in previously gathered information on candidates. The disadvantages are believed to include (Sidor-Rządkowska, 2011, p. 129): limitation of the analysis of individual behaviour without taking into account the influence of external factors, lack of a holistic picture of abilities and skills of the candidate (focusing on some aspects of general abilities and skills) and limited pertinence to the content of work. In practice, the greatest difficulty is to choose the right diagnostic methods from those available, and their possible adaptation to the needs of the organisation (e.g. through adjustment of the evaluation scales to the results against the target group). Psychological tests need to be carefully chosen and skilfully interpreted (Sidor-Rządkowska, 2011, p. 128). Unfortunately, practice shows that: on the market, there is a great number of 'test-like' products, the application of which may, in the best case, expose the company to ridicule, and in the worst case, contribute to many human tragedies (p. 129).
Abstract: Business processes have evolved over time. The development has triggered an increase in demand for humanresources by a company. As a result, the level of complexity of human resource management in a company is increasing. The most crucial system in this activity is related to payroll. The payroll activity consists of three stages, namely updating master data, preparing payroll and issuing salary. The process in payroll is very vulnerable to threats, consequently strong controls are needed in this system. various types of controls are needed to protect this system. The control is influenced by the type of threat and the condition of the company itself. However, on the other hand, because of the large costs for employees, the company also has the option to outsource employees. Some of the benefits that can be given through this outsourcing system are cost reduction. Wider range of benefits and savings in computer systems.

DCS agreed with the recommendation and informed us that it has complied through the revision of an SAT and new training processes, which were developed for the software version upgrade that took place in August 2003. DCS informed us that the Web Learning Center was further enhanced and rolled out in December 2003. In addition, DCS informed us that feedback is now solicited on an ongoing basis as part of the HumanResources Communication Network and by periodic survey of the end-user community by the DCS Customer Service Team.
These elements of macro-level HRH policies can be stated in one or more documents elaborated by an institution such as the MOH and should serve as a general guide for the whole HRH system. Some aspects of these policies can be further developed in more detailed documents or administrative directives tailored to specific contexts. Sometimes, macro-level HRH policies can also be the subject of agreements at the international level (e.g., The Pan American Health Organization Regional Plan of Action for HumanResources for Health 2007–2015). It should be highlighted that the use of scientific evidence in the development of HRH policies can greatly facilitate consensus-building and achieve expected results. Even though research in the area of HRH is not abundant, in the lasts years, a valuable body of scientific evidence has been developed and should be used in policymaking. It will be important to identify mechanisms, such as the HRH Observatories mentioned above, to make this evidence available to policymakers, simply and clearly presented and accessible on an “ongoing” basis.
So we, in consultation with our human resource experts, our employees and their unions, changed the process! Everyone in CSC has access to a computer or terminal. As a result, employees and their managers can now view their leave balances on the system, so both know immediately what is available. Employees no longer fill in the manual form. They simply call a predetermined number and the adjustment is immediately made within the Leave Module of the Human Resource system. We found this to be a win-win situation for everyone. The employees like it because they can see their own leave and update their personal information such as their home addresses. Managers find it very helpful because they are no longer in a situation of chasing employees for leave forms and know immediately what leave they can approve. The Unions like it as they see it as providing necessary information to their members (our employees).

To help schools and Principals identify where they may need to start the HR management journey, and determine where they would like to be in the future, an understanding of the model described by Dr Roger Collins, Professor Emeritus of The University of NSW, is a useful framework (see figure below). When I started at St Peter’s College I found this model particularly useful in helping me to determine where I should focus my efforts initially. It also helped me to inform and prioritise the objectives and actions identified as part of the school’s 2020 Vision and Strategic Plan and later the school’s HR strategic plan. It also provided a clear ‘line of sight’ as to where we were heading in the future in
about regulation of the role of humans in realizing optimal goals. This regulation covers the problems of planning, organizing, directing, controlling, procuring, developing, compensating, integrating, maintaining, disciplining, and terminating workers to help realize the goals of the organization / institution, employees, and the community. The following are the scope of HR management in SBM which includes: Employee planning, Employee planning is an activity to determine employee needs, both quantitatively and qualitatively for the present and the future. A good and precise personnel plan requires complete and clear information about the work or tasks that must be performed in the organization. Therefore, before preparing a plan, job analysis and job analysis are carried out to obtain a job description. This information is very helpful in determining the number of employees needed, and also to produce job specifications. This position specification provides an overview of the minimum quality of employees that can be accepted and who need to carry out work as it should. It can be concluded that the human resource planning process is a way to set goals and implementation guidelines and is the basis for employee control.
considering that the Tier I strategy is based on current industry best practices. Also, the majority of these projects involve CII companies that pride themselves on achieving higher than indus- try average performance. These companies may therefore have higher Tier I scores than might be found on other industrial con- struction projects. The scores do, however, highlight the fact that few, if any, companies are utilizing all aspects of a formal, struc- tured workforce management strategy. If this was the case, then there would be more projects scoring in the 8 to 10 point range. It is important to know in which areas the projects are experi- encing the lowest scores and in which areas they are scoring the highest. Knowing the areas of greatest concern can help those projects make modifications that will provide the greatest return. Fig. 2 compares each project to the other project scores by each of the five categories: Project Average Work Skills, Information Technology 共 IT 兲 Utilization, Craft Utilization, Project Communi- cation, and Management Structures. The figure also shows how each of the five categories contributes to the overall Tier I index for that project.
