Traces the development of personnel management in Britain over four distinct periods from the late nineteenth century onwards, and identifies the economic, political, social and institutional forces in the growth of the function. Builds up a detailed profile of the personnel practitioner, covering demographic and remunerative data, qualifications, time spending and status in the enterprise. Critically discusses the role of the professional association and its occupational models. Finally examines the conceptual and operational distinctions between personnel management and human resource management in the British context.
