Personnel/human resource management (P/HRM) has become one of the most complex and challenging areas of Canadian business. Significant changes are occurring in employment legislation, work force composition, and product market competition. Consequently, Canadian organizations need managers who understand the technical dimensions of P/HRM problems and opportunities and are able to make effective human resource management decisions. "Canadian Personnel/Human Resource Management: A Diagnostic Approach" shows readers how to make effective human resource management decisions by diagnosing organizational conditions such as business strategies and cultures, and external conditions such as increased foreign competition, government regulations, and union pressures. The balanced integration of managerial and technical material makes this book an important source of information as well as a valuable learning tool.
