Human Resources Management at McDonald’s
Introduction
McDonald’s is a company which has a colorful history and developed the culture associated with the Fast Food Chain today. In 1937, the McDonald’s brother Richard and Maurice opened the first McDonald’s restaurants in America; it was a freestanding business that offered until then an unthought-of concept. The main items they then sold were beef or pork burgers, fries and drinks. Their restaurant were set up differently to the restaurants of those times, with open kitchens the customers could see right through, and counters with many operational cash registers. Under a high degree of customer satisfactory contributed for business expansion, McDonald today has over than 30,000 restaurants over than 100 countries in the world and it has maintained the top position in the Fast Food Industry for the past 50 years. McDonald’s has been pursuing a growth strategy for the last decade. McDonald’s foreign operations amount for more than half of the company’s revenue today and all have been marked by ’s (1995) basic vision of selling the maximum. However, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the giant experienced problems owing to external environment changes. In 2002, the company experienced huge embarrassment with law suits, negative media coverage, and 15 percent drop in its stocks making it the third biggest loser in the Dow Jones Industrial average. This roller coaster ride has largely been attributed to the leadership of , who has instituted strategic changes and made the Company soar once again.

The following paper aims to address the where, why and how of HRM rhetoric’s influence on employment. The key issues are: Where and in what context is there a lack of congruence between the perceived promises of management and employee experience? Why and to what end has management used......

Hrm in Context

...(Print) e - ISSN 1857- 7431 HOW FAR DOES HRM DIFFER FROM PM Habib Allah Doaei Ferdosi University of Mashhad Rahim Najminia Ferdosi University of Mashad Abstract It is clear from the literature that HRM represents a shift in focus and strategy and is in tune with the needs of the modern organization. HRM concentrates on the planning, monitoring and control aspects of resources whereas Personnel Management was mainly about refereeing between the management and employees. Many scholars view Personnel Management as being workforce whereas HRM is resource. The differences between these two terms have to be viewed from many perspectives through the times and in context of the industry that is being studied. Keywords: Human resource management, Personnel management, SHRM Introduction Many researchers have been arguing recently the difficulty of distinguishing clear differences between Personnel management and Human resource management. Some authors believe that the difference is just a change of label as Torrington (1989cited in Koster 2007) said and there is no different in the content of Human resource management. On the other hand, there are researchers such as Guest (1987 cited in Arsmtrong, 1999) who argued that Human resource management is differentiated from traditional Personnel management. However, HRM is concerned with performing the same functional activities traditionally carried out by personnel function, but HRM approach performs these functions......

Accordingly the defendant’s negligence results in damage which is undesired by the defendant and suffered by the plaintiff. In theory, negligence’s ingredients are: (1) a legal duty to take care is owned by the defendant towards the plaintiff; (2) the duty of care is breached by the defendant; and (3) the defendant’s negligence subsequently results in damage and the damage is not too remote and should be remedied by the law.

...strategic, operational and financial objectives. The crux of the matter lies in the excessive focus on financial due diligence, risk assessments. Quite often, the people factor, i.e. issues that relate directly to people as workforce management and cultural integration, are left out of the due diligence process creating major challenges later during integration. In the past, HRM was expected to provide support in postintegration efforts, as well as increased business focus and knowledge to ensure that the full value of M&A deals is realized. For organizations, it important to believe in the fact that People are its key assets. However, today we realize that, mastering the softer issues is the hardest part of integration and has the strongest influence on an M&A’s long-term success. HRM professionals are expected to be ready to manage the people, opportunities and the risks associated in these transactions.

Strategic Hrm

...STRATEGIC HRM Introduction to HRM: Human Resource Management ("HRM") is a way of management that links people-related activities to the strategy of a business or organization. HRM is often referred to as "strategic HRM". It has several goals: - To meet the needs of the business and management (rather than just serve the interests of employees); - To link human resource strategies / policies to the business goals and objectives; - To find ways for human resources to "add value" to a business; - To help a business gain the commitment of employees to its values, goals and objectives Human resources management –It’s a main concern of management, using people in the organization. The rules and practices involved in delivery to the people or H.R.M. It is the process of acquiring, training, appraising and compensating employees and of attending to their labour relations, health and safety, and fairness concern. Human resource management (HRM) is concerned with the personnel policies and managerial practices and systems that influence the workforce. In broader terms, all decisions that affect the workforce of the organization concern the HRM function.

Comment on the various strategic HRM themes of the HR–performance link: re-engineering, leadership, work-based learning and trade unions 5. Outline some key aspects of international and comparative HRM 38 Human Resource Management Introduction In the first chapter, we examined the theoretical debate on the nature and significance of the human resource management (HRM) model; in this chapter we explore an approach to HRM labelled strategic human resource management, or SHRM. By a strategic approach to HRM, we are referring to a managerial process requiring human resource (HR) policies and practices to be linked with the strategic objectives of the organization. Just as the term ‘human resource management’ has been contested, so too has the notion of SHRM. One aspect for debate is the lack of conceptual clarity (Bamberger & Meshoulam, 2000). Do, for example, the related concepts of SHRM and HR strategy relate to a process or an outcome? Over the past decade, HR researchers and practitioners have focused their attention on other important questions. First, what determines whether an organization adopts a strategic approach to HRM, and how is HR strategy formulated? Of interest is which organizations are most likely to adopt a strategic approach to HRM. Is there, for example, a positive association......
