From personnel management to HRM: The implications for Teaching

Storey, John (1996). From personnel management to HRM: The implications for Teaching. Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources, 33(3) pp. 4–14.



The organizational significance of the move from 'personnel to human resource management' has been extensively debated; but what implications does such a shift carry for teaching? This article tackles this question by examining four main aspects: competing value systems and perspectives; the management and business course contexts within which HRM is taught; the interface between teaching and research; and curriculum design. It is concluded that while tutors still have considerable room for manoeuvre, HRM is merely one manifestation of a more powerful set of forces which will continue to impact upon educators and students in this area of study.
