Human Resources Management and Communication in Africa

Summary :

The result of experience in companies, contacts with professionals and teaching at the Catholic University of Central Africa, this book responds in a practical way to the realities and objectives of the human resources function.
Is there a specific human resources management in Africa? The human resources manager’s approach presented in the book shows that while principles and techniques can be applied in all socio-cultural contexts, they need to integrate environmental realities to be effective.
It is important for the practitioner to use his technical skills in a relevant way while respecting the person and work ethics to achieve the company’s performance objectives.
He faces some major challenges: individual progress in a community-oriented society and diversity management in a world of clan-based networks of influence.
The purpose of the book is to present a possible use of the tools of a developing function in the African continent. Indeed, the requirements of competitiveness and globalization require companies and their managers to strengthen their management by developing human resources. Integrating the human and socio-cultural factor is one of the keys to the company’s success.
