2.3 An Identification of the culture of the organisation 2 ways this affects operations
Having looked at Charles Handy’s, Deal & Kennedy’s and Edgar Schien’s organisational culture model, I have found it hard to fit the organisation as a whole and can see that different cultures exists within different departments.

2. Performance Management- Once the required workforce is in place, HR managers must ensure that employees are well motivated and dedicated to maximize their performance. By use of various motivational techniques such as promotion, increased pay and benefits such as company cars, HR managers work along side Line Managers to try to develop an individual employee's performance working towards the Trusts policies and procedures. They also train employees and negotiate improved…...
