Chapter one, on the working environment, has been completely rewritten- chapter two reminds readers of basic motivation theories, presented in a more logical sequence, and how to deal with such problems- chapter three, on workforce planning, has been retitled Human Resource Planning and revised to take into account the modes of staffing appropriate for the contemporary turbulent environment. Effective human resource planning requires excellent selection and recruitment procedures: best practice and developments in this area are explored in chapters four and five, while chapter six, on staff appraisal, more attention has been given to multi-rating approaches and to appraisal of junior by senior staff.
