9780071032742: Manage People, Not Personnel: Motivation and Performance Appraisal

Anyone who has supervised people knows that motivating employees and evaluating their performance can be frustrating and difficult. This book is designed to help managers carry out their tasks. The essays, which originally appeared in the Harvard Business Review, feature the best thinking available from leading academics and executives about what works and what doesn't in getting top performance from employees. The book includes many of the classic works on employee motivation and performance appraisal by such prominent people as Rosabeth Moss Knater, Harry Levinson, and Frederick Herzberg. Manage People, Not Personnel will be of interest to employers in large and small firms, human resource managers, and others who look to the Harvard Business Review for the best in practitioner-oriented articles in business management. "The articles in this collection represent the wide spectrum of views of leading scholars and practitioners interested in motivation and performance appraisal. Some of the diversity can be attributed to the fact that the articles have been written over a 30-year period during which much has been learned about the topics. However, it would be a mistake to assume that controversy no longer exists. The readers of this volume will be exposed to and, it is hoped, will participate in a lively debate concerning motivation and performance appraisal-issues of fundamental importance to management". -Victor H. Vroom, from the Preface
