About this product
- DescriptionThe Acceptance of Human Resource Invation, based on a survey done by the author at the Valiant Insurance Corp., examines the adoption, implementation and acceptance of workplace invations introduced by management. The purpose of the book is to provide an understanding of the gap that exists between the stated purpose of a new human resource program and its actual achievements. The study done at the insurance company was designed to measure employee reaction to and acceptance of the following human resource invations: quality circles, job posting, flex-time, a fitness program, flexible benefits, case rewards, an employee newsletter and a peer award. The study found that executives and managers were more accepting of these invations than were lower level employees. Personnel Administrator A practical guide for personnel managers and human resource professionals, this book examines the adoption, implementation, and acceptance of work invations introduced by management. The study is based on an extensive survey undertaken at a major insurance company to measure employee reactions to and acceptance of eight invations: quality circles, job posting, flextime, a fitness program, flexible benefits, cash awards, an employee newsletter, and a peer award. The author analyzes why employees tend to accept certain invations while rejecting others and offers suggestions for encouraging employee acceptance when it is lacking. Kossek begins with an interdisciplinary review of theory from the invation, personnel, and organizational development literature. The following chapters describe the research design, examine critical historical events in the adoption of the invations studied, and set forth the measures used in the human resource invation survey which forms the basis for the book. In analyzing her results, the author looks at differences in acceptance of invations as a function of hierarchical level, race, sex, seniority, unit differences, and the properties of the invations themselves. Based on her results, the author offers practical guidelines for the successful implementation of new programs and invations. An indispensable tool for human resource managers and executives, this book will also be of significant value to students and researchers in the field.
