HRM Policies and Management Practices

(p.133) 7 HRM Policies and Management Practices
Strategic Human Resource Management

McGovern Patrick

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on two related issues concerning the viability of HRM in practice. The first of these concerns the existing state of line management practice. It provides evidence of the practice of performance appraisal as a prelude to a discussion of the factors which enable and constrain line involvement. The second general set of issues concerns the configuration of incentives and constraints which shape the level of line management involvement in areas such as performance appraisal. Here the focus is on the implementation of human resource policies, specifically the consistency and quality of practice across different managers.

Keywords:   human resource management, line management, performance appraisal, incentives, human resource policy
