About this eBook

PREFACE The times are changing and so is business environment. The ongoing LPG process Liberalization, Privatization and Globalisation has made business environment highly competitive and complex. These changes have led to changes in human resource environment which, in turn, has changed human behaviour in organisations. As such, the changing environment has necessitated a perspicacious and thorough study of its impact on human resource management practices. The present book is a modest attempt to fulfil this need. The book makes a presumptious attempt to knead all aspects of HRM logically dividing them into seven sections to enable the readers comprehend the key and vital issues of HRM in a dynamic environment. The seven sections are 1 Human Resource Management Environment and Strategies, 2 Acquisition and Absorption, 3 Development, 4 Maintenance and Retention, 5 Control, 6 Miscellaneous, and 7 Cases from Indian Organisations. Thus, the book gives a well-knitted and balanced coverage of theory, contemporary issues, and practical examples and anectodes drawn from the Indian business world. Employee empowerment, potential appraisal, succession planning, strategic human resource management, human resource management in a changing environment, HR in virtual organisations, international human resource management and leadership in the new millennium are some of the emerging and contemporary issues discussed in the book. These topics have not been dealt with in most of the books on HRM available in the market. The book covers the whole syllabus of HRM prescribed by the UGC Course Development Committee on Management. In all, the book provides a refreshing insight into all that a reader wants to know about human resource management. The book is written in a jargon-free and accessible style. It is hoped that the book would serve as a useful text for the students of M.B.A., M.Com. and other diploma courses in management. It would also be useful to the practitioners in the field of human resource management. Finally, a request to the discernible readers to do a great favour to me by sending their valuable suggestions and critical comments on the book for its improvement in subsequent editions.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Every author owes a great deal to others who extend assistance of one type or other. I am no exception. The list to acknowledge them individually will be too long. I wish to express my sincere thanks to all of them. Nonetheless, I must mention some of them whose help was of considerable importance. I express my sincere gratitude to my revered and erudite teacher Prof. T.S. Papola for his guidance and encouragement in my academic endeavours. I also wish to express my profound regards and gratitude to Prof. P. Bhattacharyya, Hon ble Vice Chancellor, Tezpur University, Tezpur for his recognization and reward to my academic career. My sincere thanks are also due to my excolleagues in Assam University, Silchar and my colleagues in Tezpur University, Tezpur for their cooperation and encouragement extended to me during the course of the present study. I imbibed interest in HRM while teaching it in Assam University for about a decade. The students, in and outside the classroom, always acted as a sounding board to deepen my interest and, in turn, improve my knowledge in HRM. I take this opportunity to exonerate my debt to them by dedicating this book as a token of my love and affection to my loving students 1994-2002 , in Assam University, Silchar. As always, I am deeply appreciative to my wife Geetu and sons Abhineet and Abhinav who have provided me with a loving and supportive atmosphere needed to complete this and other academic projects over the years. Finally, my sincere thanks to my publishers, S. Chand Company Private Limited, for their untiring effort and support in bringing out this book. Tezpur 14-4-2003 Baisakhi
