This book, Human Resources Management in Education, Developing Countries Perspectives, contains eleven chapters. Human resources in an educational organisation refer to all the human beings working in that organisation, including teachers, students, administrators and all other members of staff working in that organisation. The study of human resources management in education will provide you with a theoretical and practical knowledge about the processes of acquiring employees, establishing good relationships with them, training and developing them, retaining and compensating them for their services are important because effective school leadership and management have become very crucial in recent times in the management of educational organisations. Numerous problems are facing many school systems in developing countries today and human, financial and material resources are scarce, and therefore strategic management of all resources is crucial for achieving the goals of the educational systems and the school organisations.

Based upon nation-wide consultations, it lays out a conceptual framework and outlines a set of questions about health education, the individuals pursuing health education, the flow of individuals through health education, and the factors which affect that flow. The outline will enable the identification of information that is needed to support efficient and effective decisions and policies about health education programs and health human resources management.

For institutions seeking to implement strategic HR, this book is a practical and invaluable resource.
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
In a turbulent, unstable era of severe financial pressures, the development of strategic human resource (HR) practices has become an urgent mandate in higher education. With significant and widespread institutional shifts resulting from globalization, heightened competition, and rapid innovation, educational leaders must optimize their most significant resource—human capital—and align HR strategies, structures, and processes with organizational goals. Due to substantial cuts in state appropriations and rapidly diminishing budgets, public institutions of higher education in particular are struggling to realign resources and programs to fulfill their educational missions and maintain academic quality, while simultaneously responding to complex external legislative and accreditation mandates. In light of these challenges, Creating a Tipping Point: Strategic Human Resources in Higher Education breaks new ground by presenting a research-based approach that supports the evolution of HR practices from siloed, transactional models to strategic operations that serve the entire university. This monograph provides a concrete, progressive road map to developing organizational capabilities in support of the university's academic mission and illustrates this pathway with examples drawn from public research universities. It offers strategies, tools, metrics, and action steps that support the development of an effective and efficient strategic HR operation in higher education. For institutions seeking to implement strategic HR, this book is a practical and invaluable resource.
