The Human Resources Management School
The human resources school that emerged in the early 1950s, represented a substantial advancement from The Behavioral management theory. The behavioral approach did not always increase productivity. Thus, motivation and leadership techniques became a topic of great interest. The human resources school advocated that employees are very creative and competent, and their talent is largely untapped by their employers. Employees want to work meaningfully,contribute, participate in decision making and leadership functions.
