Historical Perspective of Human Resource Management: 

The situation at Europe during the Industrial Revolution can be said to be the foundation on which modern Human Resource Management rests.   

  • Factory workers including women and children were treated like animals and forced to work in subhuman conditions. 
  • Government interference resulted in the appointment of a welfare officer whose responsibility was to ensure fair treatment of workers at the workplace. 
  • Situation changed a bit during the two world war phase. Instead of welfare officers there were one or two personnel who were given the responsibility of looking after the requirements of workers of various departments. 
  • The phase which began after the second world war and continued till the 1970’s saw the advent of the present day corporate culture. 
  • The 1980’s saw the growth of MNC’s and the advent of IT. It was in this period that Human Resource Management started to be taken seriously by companies and post 2000’s the Human Resource function underwent a sea-change. 
  • The HR transformation has been aided by the emergence of big data, artificial intelligence, robotics and analytics. 
  • Frederick W. Taylor, a renowned mechanical engineer postulated the following which formed the basis of modern human resource management. 
    • Training for workers
    • Maintain wage uniformity
    • Focus on better productivity
