Guidance which managers may apply to improve human resource policies, practices and systems, employee satisfaction and motivation is provided. The issue includes diagnostic tools to evaluate the current state of an organization’s HRM; country examples from Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique and Uganda; and Internet links to resources for all topics covered.
