Title:Redesigning Library Human Resources: Integrating Human Resources Management and Organizational Development
Author(s):Hawthorne, Pat
Subject(s):Leadership in libraries
Library organization
Abstract:The human resources (HR) function within organizations has expanded beyond administrative and operational roles to include more strategic responsibilities. This change is requiring HR practitioners to take on new types of responsibilities in the area of organizational development—responsibilities that include redesigning jobs and work, developing performance management systems, managing change, and designing and restructuring organizations. Four strategies for integrating human resources management (HRM) and organizational development (OD)—job analysis, work redesign, team-building, and change management—are presented in this article along with recommendations on how to integrate HRM and OD to enhance the performance and capacity of the organization and its workforce.
