Workplace Issues in Human Resources. Symposium 40. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on workplace issues in human resources consists of two presentations. "The Effect of Organizational Structure on Single-Source and Multiple-Source Performance Appraisal Processes: Implications for Human Resource Development (HRD)" (Karen K. Yarrish, Judith A. Kolb) investigates ratee acceptance of single- and multi-source performance feedback for employees working with a loosely coupled (nontraditional) and a tightly coupled (traditional) organizational system. Findings indicate at least a low-moderate degree of acceptance of both types of feedback by all participants. "An Exploratory Examination of the Literature on Age and HRD Policy Development" (Tonette S. Rocco, David Stein, Chan Lee) reports an examination of the literature on older workers to identify themes related to workers who remain, return, or retire from the workplace. It relates that 4 databases were searched producing 523 abstracts, from which these 4 themes were generated: retirement is an outdated notion; the importance of older workers to organizations is changing; older adults are active agents negotiating employment decisions; and career development programs are a worthwhile societal investment. Both papers include substantial bibliographies. (YLB)
