Treating seriously the issues of attracting developing motivating people and to utilize them effectively. The organizations now rate high on development of following: personnel and HRM policies systems, practices Agreements consistent with the corporate strategy
“ Human Resource Management is concerned with the problems, organizations face at all levels of the organization”. “These activities undertaken by the organizations are the means by which they assure themselves of A long term supply of people with needed competencies and required levels of loyalty and commitment ”.

D efinition O f T he F unctions O f H RM Human Resource Management is the process of acquiring, training, appraising, and compensating, retaining employees and attending to their labor relations, health and safety, and fairness concerns.
P resent C oncept O f H RM Human resource management in its present form is an approach to the management of people based on four fundamental principles. Human resources are the most important assets of an organization. Their Management is the key to its success. Success is most likely if the personnel policies and procedures are closely linked with, objectives and strategic plans. The corporate culture and values, organizational climate and managerial behavior culture influences the achievement of excellence. This culture be managed. HRM is concerned with integration. Getting all the members of the organization involved in working together with a common sense.
H RM C oncept HRM involves all the management decisions and actions that affect the nature of the relationship between the organization and employees i.e., Its Human Resources. It communicates the instrumental values about people and the notion that people no less than, physical plans and financial resources may be viewed and managed as assets. The most important implication of this approach is the development of trust between employees, managers and unions

Motivation of Employees & Leadership
W hat I s M otive? Motive is an inner force that moves a person to behave in a certain way. Motives are the mainsprings of action in people. The term motive implies the action to satisfy a need.
M otives Motives are the “WHYS” of behavior. They arouse and maintain activity and determine the general direction of the behavior of an individual. Motives are sometime defined as needs, wants, drives and impulses within the individual. Motives are directed towards goals which may be conscious or subconscious
M otivation Motivation is a general term applying to the entire class of drives, desires needs, wishes and similar forces. To say that managers motivate their subordinates is to say that they do those things which they hope will satisfy those drives and desires and induce the subordinates to act in a desired manner. Motivation is a complex subject. It involves the unique feelings and thoughts and past experiences of each of us as we share a variety of relationships within and outside the organizations.
W hy M otivation? To initiate our followers to reach our objectives, we must hold some reward once the objective is attained. What rewards do people seek? The answer is that they seek to fulfill their wants and needs.
H uman N eeds PRIMARY NEEDS: Physiological requirements for water, air, food, sleep & shelter SECONDARY NEEDS Self Esteem Status Affiliation With Others Affection (Giving) Accomplishment Self Assertion
M otive N eeds & W ants The term motive, need, wants and drives are used interchange ably. Motivation can also be termed as the willingness to expand energy, achieve a goal or a reward. NEED Respect from others. BEHAVIOR outstanding work on the job. REWARD praise, pay increase, status symbols.
M otivator Motivator is something that influences an individual behavior. It makes a difference in what a person will do. Motivators are things that induce a person to perform. Motivators are the identified rewards or incentives that sharpen the drive to satisfy the wants.
M otivation A nd S atisfaction Motivation refers to the drive and effort to satisfy a want or goal. When a want is satisfied we experienced the contentment which is called Satisfaction. Motivation implies a drive towards an outcome, and satisfaction is the outcome experienced.
Significant Motivation Theories
1. The Carrot And The Stick Theory
2. Hierarchy of Needs Theory BASIC PHYSIOLOGICAL NEEDS SAFETY/SECURITY NEEDS LOVE/BELONGING NEEDS ESTEEM NEEDS SELF-ACTUALIZATION
HIERARCHY OF NEEDS Esteem Needs Affiliation or acceptance needs Need for self- actualizati on Security or Safety needs Physiological needs

3.McGregor’s Theory of Motivation THEORY “X”
4.Herzberg's Theory of Motivation (Two Factor Theory) According to this theory, motivation is largely affected by two factors, namely: The Hygiene Factors Or The Dissatisfies. The Motivators Or The Satisfiers.
The Hygiene Factors Or The Dissatisfiers Leadership Relationship With Peers, Superiors and Subordinates Working Conditions Salary Company Policy and Administration, etc
The Motivator Or The Satisfiers These are factors, which give a sense of satisfaction to the employees and result in motivating them. Achievement. Recognition. Advancement. Responsibility. Challenging work.

Vroom’s Ex pectancy Theory People will be motivated to do things to reach a goal if they believe in the worth of their goal and if they can see that what they do will help them in achieving it. In a sense a particular action will lead to a desire Force=Valance X Expectancy Force=Strength of a persons motivation. Valence=Strength of individuals performance for an outcome. Expectancy=The probability that a particular action will lead to a desired outcome.
Vroom’s Ex pectancy Theory Recognizes the importance of: Needs and motivation The harmony of objectives. Expectation of the rewards for the work done. Perception of value varies. Managers job to design environment.
McCelland's Theory of Needs Three kinds of basic motivation needs: Need for Power(N Pwrs) Need for Achievement(N Ach) Need for Affiliation(N Aff)
Portar & Lowler Motivation Model Value of Rewards Ability to do specified task Perception of task required Effort Performance accomplishment Perceived effort – review probability Perceived effort – review probability Perceived equitable rewards Intrinsic rewards Satisfaction Exitricis rewards
Equity Theory OUTCOMES BY A PERSON =OUTCOMES BY ANOTHER PERSON INPUTS BY A PERSON INPUTS BY ANOTHER PERSON
Reinforcement Theory Individuals can be motivated by proper design of their work environment and praise for their performance and that punishment for poor performance produces negative results.

Performance refers to an employee’s accomplishment of assigned tasks. P erformance
Appraisal All managers are constantly forming judgments of their subordinates and are in that sense continuously making appraisals. The term is,however, applied in Human Resource Management to “Formal and systematic assessment made in a prescribed and uniform manner at a certain time”. Appraisal is the judgement of an employee’s performance in his job, based on considerations other than productivity alone.
It is length of time during which an employees job performance is observed in order to make a formal report. A ppraisal P eriod
It is the systematic description of the job-relevant strengths and weaknesses of an individual or a group P erformance A ppraisal
P erformance A ppraisal A Complex and often Misunderstood Process Performance appraisal is an exercise in observation and judgement, it is a feedback process, and it is an organizational intervention. It is a measurement process as well as an intensely emotional and human process also.
P erformance M anagement Performance Management is the total process of observing an employee’s performance in relation to job requirements over a period of time and then making an appraisal of it. This is done by: Clarifying expectations. Setting goals. Providing on-the-job coaching. Storing and recalling information about performance. Counseling & Feedback. Monitoring.
Planning Performance. Managing Performance. Reviewing Performance. Rewarding Performance. P erformance M anagement P rocess
Managing performance needs appraisal. It means something very specific, and much too narrow. A process of improvement, which demands continued attention. Performance appraisal is only a part in the overall PM process. PM requires a willingness and commitment to focus on improving performance at all levels. Timely feedback and constant focus of everyone’s attention on the ultimate objective. We need to break performance appraisal orientation to performance management. P erformance M anagement
T he O rganizational A nd H uman C ontexts O f P erformance A ppraisal Performance appraisal is almost universal. In our contest not so well organized. Managers have limited contact with employees outside but we have no distance. Accuracy in appraisal is less important than motivating and rewarding the subordinates to most managers. Standards and ratings tend to vary widely and often unfairly Personal values and biases can replace organizational standards. Sometimes the validity of performance appraisals is reduced by the supervisor’s resistance to making them. Some supervisors complain that performance appraisal is pointless paperwork Performance appraisal interfere with more constructive supervisor -subordinate coaching relationships.

L egal I ssues I n P erformance A ppraisal To avoid legal difficulties, consider taking the following steps: Conduct a JA and determine job characteristics Incorporate these characteristics into a rating system Train supervisors to use the rating system properly. Provide performance counseling or corrective guidance Formal appeal mechanism, and higher level review. Document appraisal and reasons for termination decision
T he S trategic D imension O f P erformance A ppraisal Greatest Management Principle: The things that get rewarded get done well. Short term if rewarded will generate short term performance. When long term results required then the performance on longer periods need to be rewarded. Managers may emphasize short or long term objectives or a combination. Short term objectives - outcome as bottom line results for current quarter. Long term objectives - increase market share and securing repeat business. To be most effective, strategic management of Performance must be linked to the strategies an organization uses to gain competitive advantage eg innovation, speed, quality or cost control.

W hen S hould E ach T echnique B e U sed If objective is to compare employees across raters for important employment decisions (e.g. promotion, merit pay),MBO and work planning review should not be used. They are not based on a standardized rating scheme for all employees. If a BARS is used, diary keeping should be made a part of the process. This will improve the accuracy of the ratings, and it also will help supervisors distinguish between effective and ineffective employees. If objective performance data are available, MBO is the best strategy to use. Work planning and review are not as effective as MBO.
W hen S hould E ach T echnique B e U sed Appraisal methods that are best in a broad organizational sense- BARS and MBO - are the most difficult to use and maintain. Methods that focus on describing, rather than evaluating, behavior(e.g. BARS, rating scales)produce results that are the most interpretable across raters. No rating method has been an unqualified success when used as a basis for merit pay or promotional decisions. When certain statistical corrections are made, the correlation's between scores on alternative rating formats are very high. Hence all the formats measure essentially the same thing.

I mpact O f P erformance A ppraisal O n P roductivity, Q uality O f W ork L ife, A nd T he B ottom L ine Performance appraisal is a feedback process. Feedback increases performance by 10 to 30 percent.” Feedback is a fairly inexpensive way to improve productivity; but, to work effectively, it requires sustained commitment. The cost of failure to provide such feedback may result in the loss of key professional employees, the continued poor performance of employees who are not meeting performance standards, and a loss of commitment by all employees. The myth that employees know how they are doing without adequate feedback from management can be an “expensive fantasy”.
I mplications F or M anagement P ractice The difficulty of implementing and management of performance appraisal systems. To improve policy issues for improvement in PMS make “quality of performance appraisal feedback to subordinates” and “development of subordinates” integral parts of every manager’s job description. Tie rewards to effective performance. Recognize that performance appraisal is a dialogue involving people and data; both political and interpersonal issues are involved. No appraisal method is perfect, but with management commitment and employee “buy-in” performance management can be a very useful and powerful tool.
