Following are 2 primary approaches in human resource management

Control Approach: The goal is to reduce labor costs or improve efficiency by enforcing employee compliance with specified rules and procedures and basing employee rewards on some measurable output criteria

Commitment Approach: This system shapes desired employee behaviors by forging psychological links between organizational and employee goals. The focus is on developing committed employees who can be trusted to carry out job tasks


I think Control approach never works, this was the traditional approach used in core manufacturing units. Commitment approach is the one companies should be using.
