Personnel Management
- basically an administrative recordkeeping function, at the operational level.
- attempts to maintain fair terms and conditions of employment, while at the same time, efficiently managing personnel activities for individual departments etc.
- It is assumed that the outcomes from providing justice and achieving efficiency in the management of personnel activities will result ultimately in achieving organisational success.
Human Resource Development
- is concerned with the development and implementation of people strategies, which are integrated with corporate strategies, and ensures that the culture, values and structure of the organisation, and the quality, motivation and commitment of its members contribute fully to the achievement of its goals. * is concerned with carrying out the SAME functional activities traditionally performed by the personnel function, such as HR planning, job analysis, recruitment and selection, employee relations, performance management, employee appraisals, compensation management, training and development etc. But, the HRM approach performs these functions in a qualitatively DISTINCT way, when compared with Personnel Management.
Main Differences between Personnel Management and HRM * Personnel management is workforce centered, directed mainly at the organisation’s employees; such as finding and training them, arranging for them to be paid, explaining management’s expectations, justifying management’s actions etc.

* While on the other hand, HRM is resource–centered, directed mainly at management, in terms of devolving the responsibility of HRM to line management, management development etc.

* Although indisputably a management function, personnel management has never totally identified with management interests, as it becomes ineffective when not…...

...Note: Solve any 4 Case Study’s CASE: I Managing the Guinness brand in the face of consumers’ changing tastes 1997 saw the US$19 billion merger of Guinness and GrandMet to form Diageo, the world’s largest drinks company. Guinness was the group’s top-selling beverage after Smirnoff vodka, and the group’s third most profitable brand, with an estimated global value of US$1.2 billion. More than 10 million glasses of the popular stout were sold every day, predominantly in Guinness’s top markets: respectively, the UK, Ireland, Nigeria, the USA and Cameroon. However, the famous dark stout with the white, creamy head was causing some strategic concerns for Diageo. In 1999, for the first time in the 241-year of Guinness, sales fell. In early 2002 Diageo CEO Paul Walsh announced to the group’s concerned shareholders that global volume growth of Guinness was down 4 per cent in the last six months of 2001 and, more alarmingly, sales were also down 4 per cent in its home market, Ireland. How should Diageo address falling sales in the centuries-old brand shrouded in Irish mystique and tradition? The changing face of the Irish beer market The Irish were very fond of beer and even fonder of Guinness. With close to 200 litres per capita drunk each year—the equivalent of one pint per person per day—Ireland ranked top in worldwide per capita beer consumption, ahead of the Czech Republic and Germany. Beer accounted for two-thirds of all alcohol bought in Ireland in 2001. Stout led......

...ousted all imports from the Irish market. Not only that, he even began to capture a share of the English market. By 1825 Guinness Stout was being sold abroad, and by 1838 the St. James Gate Brewery had become the largest in Ireland. Its growth continued, with annual production of more than one million barrels in 1881, and by 1914 St. James's Gate was the world's largest brewery. At the milling stage the malt is crushed.The crushed malt is mixed with flaked barley Mashing and roast barley to give a substance called grist. The Copper Boiling grist is weighed and fed into a mash vessel along with hot Fermentation water and mixed thoroughly at approximately 65 degrees Maturation celsius.This process results in a porridge-like consistency, Bright Beer Tanks which is then passed through a sieve. The sugary liquid which results (called wort) is transferred to the copper kettle, while the grains which are left behind in the sieve are sold as cattle feed. Milling QUALITY IN PRODUCTION Introduction Producing a consistently high quality product is one of the key challenges facing many organisations. However that challenge becomes greater when the product is a food or drink, requiring it not only to taste and look good but also to be safe. Guinness UDV Ireland produces more than 4 million pints of its famous stout every single day. This case study looks at how Guinness UDV Ireland uses world-class manufacturing techniques and Total Quality Management (TQM) to ensure that these......

The Marketing Perspective

...User: from the marketing perspective, what has guinness done to ensure its longevity? Weegy: They made sure that Guinness can be remembered on St Patricks day. [ [ Guinness has stood the test of time, in part, because it has carefully managed its equities and resisted the urge to overextend itself into sub-brands that don?t resonate with its brand promise. Guinness? equity strategy is simple, yet effective: identify the core brand assets and leverage them across all touchpoints, all of the time. Black as the dominant color, the harp as logo and a unique opening ceremony are all symbols of the elite club to which Guinness loyalists belong. Similar to Apple and Starbucks consumers who flaunt their white headphones or white coffee cups as they walk down the street, brandishing a Guinness bottle or glass conveys a statement of belonging; of understanding the brand at a deep, emotional level. ] ] Auto answered|Score .9955|Fanboy|Points 340| User: how would you characterize the Guinness brand? Weegy: Guinness is one of the world's best-known brands, and a key product as well as the lead beer in Diageo's global portfolio. Yet Guinness's reputation is arguably much bigger than its sales would suggest. [ Something of an acquired taste, the stout trails higher-selling international lagers such as Heineken or Carlsberg, although its distinctive black-and-white branding and striking, often surreal advertising is recognized worldwide.www.adbrands.net/uk/guinness_uk.htm ] Auto...

Guinness on Handicapped Equality

...Guinness on Handicapped Equality Last month, Guinness came out with a unique beer commercial. Rather than a commercial portraying beautiful, young woman, it flips the switch by presenting a group of athletic, beer-drinking men who are defined as much by their kindness as their physical strength. Guinness managed to put a positive spin on disability, portraying people with disabilities as having just as much fun with good friends as people without disabilities. As the men partake in an intense game of wheelchair basketball, there is soothing and emotional music playing in the background, which sounds very inspiring to viewers. The ad starts off with a ball being shot at the hoop, we do not see who shot it. I automatically assumed that it was likely someone without a disability shooting because most athletes are not disabled. After I saw who was playing, I right away immediately assumed they were all disabled because they were all putting in an equal amount of effort and all in wheelchairs. The ad does not point out who the actual disabled player is until most of the men stand up after the game, except for one who remains in his wheelchair. This revealed that they were using the chairs to include a friend who has a physical disability. There is no audience; they are not looking for accolades. They are simplyenjoying fellow athletes on the same level. Society has often created a stereotype of people in wheelchairs to be as weak, fragile, and incapable. The men are playing......

New Definition of Masculinity

...watched the Guinness Wheelchair Basketball commercial, I immediately played it over again. I couldn’t believe what I just saw. It is no overstatement that this commercial resonated with me unlike any I have ever seen before. It’s not because I love Guinness. It’s not even because it breaks the stereotype for a beer commercial with its uplifting nature. As someone who has a muscle disease and may soon be in a wheelchair myself, it hit home. What do I mean? It is very easy for a brand to mess this type of ad up. When you decide to include someone in a wheelchair, there is always the possibility that you might accidentally create an ad that is exploitative or condescending to the person with the disability. You run the risk that someone might take it the wrong way, or question your motives. Unfortunately, because of this, the advertising world tends to play it safe and feature only able-bodied individuals in commercials. So any deviation from that norm, and it is newsworthy. That is what makes this Guinness ad all the more remarkable. It is newsworthy, yes. Yet, instead of sparking controversy or being universally panned by critics for tying their product to social inclusion, Guinness has been praised. Their premise is simple: Guinness is the beer for those who go to great lengths to help their friends, and who believe that “the choices we make reveal the true nature of our character.” Any brand can theoretically make that claim with their product. But when Guinness makes......

Essay About Guinness

...Chapter 9 Foreign currency transactions and Hedging foreign exchange risk Answers to Questions 1. Under the two-transaction perspective, an export sale (import purchase) and the subsequent collection (payment) of cash are treated as two separate transactions to be accounted for separately. The idea is that management has made two decisions: (1) to make the export sale (import purchase), and (2) to extend credit in foreign currency to the foreign customer (obtain credit from the foreign supplier). The income effect from each of these decisions should be reported separately. 2. Foreign currency receivables resulting from export sales are revalued at the end of accounting periods using the current spot rate. An increase in the value of a receivable will be offset by reporting a foreign exchange gain in net income, and a decrease will be offset by a foreign exchange loss. Foreign exchange gains and losses are accrued even though they have not yet been realized. 3. Foreign exchange gains and losses are created by two factors: having foreign currency exposures (foreign currency receivables and payables) and changes in exchange rates. Appreciation of the foreign currency will generate foreign exchange gains on receivables and foreign exchange losses on payables. Depreciation of the foreign currency will generate foreign exchange losses on receivables and foreign exchange gains on payables. 4. Hedging is the process of eliminating exposure to foreign exchange......
