IIBM Institute of Business Management Caselet 2 The contexts in which human resources are managed in today''s organizations are constantly, changing. No longer do firms utilize one set of manufacturing processes, employ a homogeneous group of loyal employees for long periods of time or develop one set way of structuring how work is done and supervisory responsibility is assigned.
