organisational structure[edit]

what is an organisation structure? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:51, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Please consult the article on organizational structure. —Eustress talk 14:57, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

haw can i you for me unvarsty — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:26, 14 June 2013 (UTC)


I reverted edits by JorisvS to move this page and rename as "Human-resource management" (with a hyphen). The current nomenclature would appear to be the common name by most any standard. Is there any strong case otherwise? —Eustress talk 22:12, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

No there is no case anywhere in the HR world. NB the same user has also done this change to Human resource consulting and Human resource policies. I have requested moves back in all three so these two are still outstanding, assuming you are an Admin can you assist there too please? I think from recollection there is also one for an IT related discipline which has been currupted by this user in this way.Tmol42 (talk) 00:34, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

would it be appropriate to include efficacy studies?[edit]

I'm having a great deal of trouble finding empirically derived research on this topic. mostly all i can find is highly theoretical business jargon accompanied by no data gathering or poorly design qualitative data gathering. which leads many essays on the subject to suggest various systems without justification. would it be helpful to include a topic section that discussed the efficacy of HR? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:07, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Subjective List of journals in article necessary?[edit]

This article has quite a long list of what appears to be some editor's favorite journals. Many more could be added too? I suggest they are taken out of the article entirely, or expanded significantly, for balance and not present a possibly biased, and definitely, a subjective list of journals as they currently stand? Thoughts from other editors first, and before I edit that section accordingly please?Mrm7171 (talk) 01:27, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

ASTD is now ATD[edit]

The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) is now the Association for Talent Development (ATD), a non-profit association for workplace learning and performance professionals.

[1] (The titles of this referenced page and the disambiguation page should also be changed from ASTD to ATD.)

Random Edits[edit]

These two articles could be their own section because I think both of these topics are important to the evolution and current trends in the Human Resources field.

Virtual HR [1] The current and increased significance of information technology in Human Resources processes.

Diversity and International Issues [2] With the increase in globalization and diverse work spaces, human resource professional place more emphasis on these topics.

These two articles could be helpful in adding more bulk to the history of Human Resource Management section.

Evolution of HR [3] Tracing Human Resources through its beginning to now, including research from the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM)

Principles of Management [4] The history of Human Resources, from just a general management role to personnel management. The early stages of the field and its transition to more specialized functions. (talk) 22:25, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Reverted long self-referential passages[edit]

Both here [2] and in the article a few days ago. My concerns are that the new user is self-citing, when we don't know if they're a reliable source. This type of editing also tends to look self-promotional in nature, and it may constitute copyright violation, as well, though that's more a hunch than a certainty. 2601:188:0:ABE6:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 03:06, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Peer Edit[edit]

Aarean, I think you have a really good amount of information, and I am really impressed with how you managed to include as much information as you did regarding the amount that was already in the article before you started editing. I also think you included a good use of multiple sources. To improve this article and avoid redundancy, I would combine some of the lead section information with the history, like when it talks about the 20th century human relations movement. I think that your arcfhhticle sounds very neutral which is important for Wikipedia, and you have done a great job of informing be about Human Resource Management!

Kuzavaam (talk) 19:06, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

"Human resource management" has significantly more hits than "human resources management", even in combination with other words. If the pages are merged then "Human resource management" should be the preferred term. --Nicholas0 (talk) 10:54, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Human Resources Management[edit]

I've turned Human Resources Management into a redirect here (again). It was a copy/paste of this page, which is WP:CUTPASTE problem which destroys attribution, as well as being a CFORK, which leads to pointless confusion. If there really is enough of a difference to call for two different article, this was absolutely not the way to do it. Grayfell (talk) 01:18, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
