Q. Industrial revolution of human resource management?
The industrial revolution: during this period machines were brought in; technology made rapid progress; jobs were more fragmented where the worker did only a small portion of the total job; and specialization increased speed and efficiency but left workers with dull, boring and monotonous jobs. Workers were treated like ‘glorified machine tools'. Employees were keeping in to meet production targets rather than satisfy workers demands. Government did very little to protect the interest of the workers.
