labour management

labour management

the activity or part of MANAGEMENT concerned with all aspects of managing the work of others. It involves both the managing of production itself and activities such as selection of labour, discipline etc. With the growing specialization of management in recent decades these activities have often been separated, with some becoming the responsibility of PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT. For this reason the term labour management' is not in widespread use today.
