By: Walters, Jack Edward, 1896-.
Publisher: New York : Ronald Press Co., [1945]Description: xx, 547 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.Subject(s): Personnel management | Labor and laboring classes -- United States | Personnel ManagementAdditional physical formats: OriginalDDC classification: 658.3 Online resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: "This book endeavors to set forth both principles and practice in the field of personnel relations as it is today. It includes in its scope the varying phases of personnel relations as they are determined and influenced by workers in labor unions; managements; the government; labor-management cooperation; individual employees; and personnel relations techniques and procedures. The structure of the book has in fact been built around these. The vital theme that runs throughout the book is the consideration of these principles and practices in a setting of democracy, with an endeavor to give a realistic understanding of what that implies and means for everyone concerned. Without such an understanding all discussion becomes mere generality, of little aid in the important decisions, judgments, and actions that count in reaching a sound and enduring solution of the problems of personnel relations. Thus the book attempts to present personnel relations not in a mere descriptive sense, but from positive democratic viewpoints of those who are actively concerned: from management's point of view when the management of personnel relations is being considered; from that of representatives of government, when personnel relations under government cooperation and regulation are discussed; and from labor's standpoint when the aims, history, and actions of labor unions are reviewed"--Preface.
