Human Resource Management Practices in Selected Ethiopian Private Companies

A Study to Increase Employee Productivity in Ethiopia

by Dirk J. van Wasbeek

09/24/2004

This dissertation examines how human resources are managed at selected Ethiopian private companies, how Ethiopian human resource management practice is evolving and how it can be improved.

The respondents themselves were higher in transformational leadership. Additionally, those with higher transformational scores were more likely to use IT for Human Resources Management. The use of IT enhanced accessibility, timeliness, and HR decision making. We are likely to see in the years to come many more evaluated shifts of HR programs and practices from paper to PC." -Bernard M.

Solving the Childcare and Flexibility Puzzle

How Working Parents Make the Best Feasible Choices and What That Means for Public Policy

by Arthur C. Emlen

This book shines a light on the dynamics of parental decisions and discovers a remarkable ability.

It all depends on how much flexibility they can marshal from work schedules, shared family efforts, and helpful providers of childcare. Based on successful measurement of childcare quality from a parent's point of view, the findings show that as parents solve their flexibility puzzle, the more flexibility from any or all sources, the better the quality of care. Emlen gives the familiar concept of flexibility new scope an...
