Human resource management based on behavioral systems is viewed as a superior method and gaining acceptance throughout industry. Increasingly, companies that strive for excellence are adopting those techniques. Evidence of concern for the human element of organizations is found in the rapid growth of corporate memberships in associations that foster the behavioral approach (American Productivity Center and American Compensation Association).
Acceptance of behavioral management tools in business is made practical by ease of implementation. Employee performance is identifiable, behaviors can be pinpointed, and activity is measurable.
The thrust of this examination, therefore, is to substantiate the benefits of behavioral psychology in developing management techniques that facilitate quality and productivity improvement.
