One aim of this book is to discuss the socio-psychological aspects of personnel methods in the light of available evidence and opinion. Another aim is to help set the stage for the further development, evaluation, and use of these methods--so that personnel technology may become as useful as is materials technology. This book is written for those who are interested in improving personnel management by use of personnel systems and procedures. It undertakes to show how present personnel technology was developed and to clarify the boundaries of the personnel methods and management field from the socio-psychological point of view. The objective point of view can be applied to industrial-social problems with profit to labor, business and industry, and the community. The understanding of mutual problems is a primary function of both labor union managements and business managements"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
