A Practical Guide for Personnel Management: The Essential Elements.
Todaro, Julie B.
The essential elements of personnel management are outlined. Personnel management may be called by various names and may be practiced by various levels of management, but in any case it is one of the most important elements of a management position. While sample forms generally relate to Texas community colleges and libraries, the guide is written in general terms, and the scope is personnel management in general, rather than the management of library personnel in particular. Chapters address the following topics: (1) personnel today; (2) selecting personnel; (3) personnel performance expectations; (4) communication and personnel; (5) productivity and personnel; (6) evaluating personnel; (7) managing diverse personnel; (8) management styles and personnel; and (9) future directions. Fifteen sample forms are included, and additional forms are interspersed throughout the text to assist the reader/manager to apply personnel guidelines to his or her own situation. (SLD)
