Human Resource Management is one of the most important capacities within a company or organization. Especially in a work- and knowledge-intensive society, human resources represent a crucial point of value added and are a source of competitive advantage. In recent years, the importance of human resource management has increased due to an expanding globalization and the augmented competitive pressure on the sales and labor market.
