Managing Human Resources in the Human Services - Supervisory Challenges
Perlmutter, Felice Davidson; Bailey, Darlyne; Netting, Ellen
Subject: Social Work, 2000

"This book addresses the challenges facing the often under-appreciated managerial supervisors who oversee and provide a crucial organizational structure for work that occurs in human service across the country. The successful managerial supervisor must be able to create and develop the organizational culture in which client-centered practice can occur, balance the demands of administrative leadership with those of workers who see clients, keep a client-centered focus amid the paradoxes that arise in the process, and maintain a healthy professional presence."

A Theory of Employment Systems - Micro-Foundations of Societal Diversity
Marsden, David
Subject: Economics and Finance, 1999
"'A theory of Employment Systems' explains why there are such great international differences in the way employment relations are organized within the firm. It takes account of the growing evidence of international diversity. It sets out from the theory of the firm first developed by Coase and Simon, and explains why firms and workers should use the employment relationship as the basis for their economic cooperation. The originality of the employment relationship lies in its flexibility. It gives managers the authority to organize work, but it also establishes limits on employees' obligations."
