(Torrington and Hall, 1987) There is always some degree of being in between the management and the workforce, mediating the needs of each to the other. The structure of the business I am studying is hierarchical although they do try to completely integrate all the workers within the company. 1) Crew member 2) Five star crew member 3) Training squad member The hierarchy moving 4) Hourly paid floor manager up in Stature. 5) Salaried floor manager 6) First assistant manager 7) Store manager 8) General manager The purpose of having a successful human resource department is to fulfill, and ensure that a number of aspects are considered. A simple and common analysis of these essential factors is as follows: ? Legal ? Political ? Economic ? Society ? Technological ?

Each month normally an employee can gain a star at the start until they get up to the five star region in the hierarchy then from then on it gets harder to continue up the hierarchy.

As shown below: ? Human resource management is essential for an organisation to survive ? Human resource management changes the perceptions of both employees and employers ? There is defined differentiation between "personnel" and "human resource" ? The human resource management function includes the "Le PEST & Co" factors which essentially need considering to ensure success ? Training involves growing in knowledge, skills and attitudes through learning experience. ? Training can act as a reason for motivation. ...read more.
