Abstract:

The domain of personnel department activities was defined empirically by a modified delphi involving 35 experts representing eight constituencies. A factor analysis of these tasks using the opinions of 805 managers and employees in five firms suggested eight underlying dimensions. These activity dimensions appear to capture both the administrative and the strategic foci of the personnel unit. The potential usefulness of these dimensions for comparative analysis of personal unit activities across organization contexts was also explored.
