Paving the Way for the 21st Century: The Human Factor in Higher Education Financial Management.
Ginsburg, Sigmund G., Ed.
This book presents human resources issues that will affect the financial management of colleges and universities as they move into the 21st century. It examines how business managers and human resources managers must balance human resources management policies and practices against the financial demands on the institution. It discusses the importance of organizational culture to the success of a college or university and to the successful management of human resources concerns. Part 1, Preparing for a New Era, views human resources management in the context of financial stability, organizational change, the need for leadership, and a diverse workforce. Part 2, Work Issues, focuses on issues affecting individual employees and the organization's ability to recruit, motivate, retain, evaluate, and realize the most that it can from the skills, knowledge, and drive of its employees. Part 3 covers compensation issues: salary, health benefits, other benefits, and retirement programs. Part 4, Departmental Issues, discusses factors that shape human resources management, policies, and practices: collective bargaining, information systems, and the changing nature of human resources administration. Contains a bibliography of 88 items. (Each chapter contains references.) (JDD)
