A study on Total quality human Resource management carried at Non-governmental
The importance of Total Quality Human Resources Management (TQHRM) in a nongovernmental organisation (NGO) as a means of ensuring sustainable growth for an organisation
cannot be overemphasized, as it is the fundamental strength upon which people; strategies,
processes and operations are based. Effective employee management should be on top of the list
of priorities for progressive improvement of an organisation. A NGO must strive to attract,
develop and retain qualified and enthusiastic employees as they are the key to the success of
ones business. TQHRM in a NGO is no different to HR in any other sector, but the problems
that HR professionals face within the NGO industry are quite unique.

Non governmental Organisations (NGOs) as we know them today are generally thought
to have come in to existence around the mid nineteenth century. It was only about a century
later that the importance of NGOs was officially recognized by the United Nations. At the UN
congress in San Francisco in 1968, a provision was made in article 71 of the charter of the
United Nations frame work that qualified NGOs in the field of economic and social development
to receive consultative status with economic and social council.
The development of modern NGOs has largely mirrored that general world of history,
particularly after the Industrial Revolution .as far NGOs have existed in some form or another
back as 25000 years ago. Since 1850, more than 100,000 private. Non-profit Organisations with
an international focus have been founded. The growth of NGOs really took off after the second
world war , with about 90 international NGOs founded each year , compared with 10 each year
in the 1890s .Only about 30 percent of early international NGOs have survived ,although those
Organizations after the wars have had better survival rate. Many more NGOs with local, national
or regional focus have been created, through like their international counterparts, not all have
survived or have been successful.
International Non Governmental Organisations have a history dating back to at least
1839. It has been estimated that by 1914 there were 1083 NGOs International important in the
anti- slavery movement and the movement for womens suffrage, and reached a peak at the time
of the World Disarmament Conference. However, the phrase non governmental organisation
only came in to popular use with the establishment of the United Nations in 1945 with provisions
in Article 71 of chapter 10 of the United Nations. Charters for a consultative role for
Organisations which are neither governments nor member states consultative status. The
definition of "international NGO" (INGO) is first given in resolution 288 (X) of ECOSOC on
February 27, 1950: it is defined as "any international organization that is not founded by an
international treaty". The vital role of NGOs and other "major groups" in sustainable
development was recognized in chapter 27 of Agenda 21, leading to intense arrangements for a

consultative relationship between the United Nations and non-governmental organizations. Rapid
development of the non-governmental sector occurred in western countries as a result of the
processes of restructuring of the Welfare further globalization of that process occurred after the
fall of the communist system Washington stem and was an important part of the Washington
Globalization during the 20th century gave rise to the importance of NGOs. Many
problems could not be solved within a nation. International treatise and international
organizations such as World Trade Organizations were perceived as being too centered on the
interests of capitalist enterprises. Some argued that in an attempt to counterbalance this trend,
NGOs have developed to emphasize humanitarian issues, development aid and sustainable
development. A prominent example for this is the world is the World Social Form held annually
in January in Davos Switzerland. The fifth world Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil


January 2005 was attended by representatives from more than 1,000 NGOs. Some have argued
that in forums like these, NGOs take the place of what should belong to popular movements of
the poor. Others argue that NGOs are often imperialist in nature, that they sometimes operate in a
racial zed manner in third world countries, and that they fulfill a similar function to that of the
clergy during the high colonial era. The philosopher Peter Halward argues that they are an
aristocratic form of politics. Whatever the case, NGO transnational networking is now extensive.
India has a long history of civil society based on the concepts of daana (giving) and seva
(service). Voluntary organizations that are voluntary in spirit and without profit-making
objectives were active in cultural promotion, education, health, and natural disaster relief as early
as the medieval era. They proliferated during British rule, working to improve social welfare and
literacy and pursuing relief projects. During the second half of the 19th century, nationalist
consciousness spread across India and self-help emerged as the primary focus of sociopolitical

Numerous organizations were established during this period, including the Friend-inNeed Society (1858), Prathana Samaj (1864), Satya Shodhan Samaj (1873), Arya Samaj (1875),
the National Council for Women in India (1875), and the Indian National Conference (1887).
The Societies Registration Act (SRA) was approved in 1860 to confirm the legal status of the
growing body of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The SRA continues to be relevant
legislation for NGOs in India, although most state governments have enacted amendments to the
original version. Christian missionaries active in India at this time directed their efforts toward
reducing poverty and constructing hospitals, schools, roads, and other infrastructure. Meanwhile,
NGOs focused their efforts on education, health, relief, and social welfare.
A firm foundation for secular voluntary action in India was not laid until the
governmental development agencies were established around this time, such as the Peoples
Action for Development of India. Foreign-trained Indians entered civil society in greater
numbers, leading to a professionalization of the sector. India witnessed a rapid increase in and
diversification of the NGO sector as a response to the national political scenario and increasing
concern about poverty and marginalization. Both welfare and empowerment oriented
organizations emerged during this period, and development, civil liberties, education,
environment, health, and livelihood all became the focus of attention.



participation as a defined component in a number of social sector projects during the 1970s and
1980s, NGOs began to be formally recognized as development partners of the state. Their work
was increasingly characterized by grassroots interventions, advocacy at various levels, and
mobilization of the marginalized to protect their rights. The process of structural adjustment
begun in the early 1990sand the more recent approach of bilateral and international donors
channeling funds directly through the government, NGO networks, and large corporate NGOs
have somewhat pushed peoples organizations into the background. Small, spontaneous
initiatives at the community level, as a response to social and economic exploitations at the
community level, are no longer the hallmark of the NGO sector.

Child trafficking is one of the worst forms of human rights violations. It affects millions
of children worldwide. United Nations estimates suggest that globally trafficking in women and
children is an operation worth $10 billion annually. And it is still increasing.
The definitions on trafficking used all over the world are countless. In a general sense,
Child trafficking is the movement of children from place to place through force, coercion or
deception into situations of economic and/or sexual exploitation. Trafficking is nothing but
modern-day slavery with prostitution as its most recognized form and purpose. That children are
trafficked for labor, domestic work, organ transplants, begging, drug peddling, marriages,
adoption, camel jockeying, circus and other forms of entertainment in large numbers is only
hardly known.

The Root Causes
The root causes of trafficking in children are multiple and complex. In most developing
countries today, globalisation has severed the traditional socio-economic relations and the growth
of tourism has rendered women and children vulnerable. A disintegration of the rural
communities and the grim reality of the poor and the marginal people, lack of employment
opportunities for adults, low social status of the girl child, a general lack of education and
awareness make people easy victims of trafficking, particularly in the South Asian countries. A
religious and cultural tradition in the form of devadasi system, which means the dedication of
young girls to gods and goddesses (euphemistically known as temple prostitution) in places like
northern Karnataka, sanctifies and institutionalizes this crime.
Beliefs that sex with virgins and young children is safe and can heal sexual disorders only
add to the problem. Situations of emergency natural disasters and political conflicts also
make children vulnerable to trafficking. One of the biggest hurdles in stopping child trafficking
is the lack of public awareness and acceptance of this crime. Inadequate legislation and weak law
enforcement make it easier for the traffickers to operate. India is a country of both transit and
destination. Unlike Sri Lanka, where the Government has come down heavily on pedophilic
activity, India is still considered a soft state. There is a considerable degree of internal
trafficking across state borders as well as cross-border trafficking from India to Gulf States and
to South-East Asia. India is both a supplier as well as a consumer. The procurement and sale of
these children is undertaken in an organised manner by organised syndicates or individuals
and, sometimes, informal groups including relatives and parents. A deep-rooted social
stratification within Indian society means that children belonging to the underprivileged sections
are the most vulnerable.
The impact globalisation and liberalisation have on these parts of society are increasing
poverty, unemployment and forced migration, and disintegrating traditional family systems
coupled with growing consumerism and individualism. Trafficking has become a lucrative
business. The growing co modification of women and children makes them vulnerable to being
trafficked. Nearly half the children born in India remain unregistered. In many cases, when a

child goes missing, the case goes unreported. According to police sources, of the 15,000 children
that are reported missing every year, only 22 per cent get traced. Some are sold by their families;
some get lured with promises of a job or a marriage and quite a few lands up in illegal activities
like begging, organ trade, smuggling, drugs, sex tourism (including paedophilia).
There have been studies on trafficking, based on available data, newspaper reports and
information through NGO initiatives, but most of them focus on trafficking for the sex industry
this applies to child trafficking too. Prostitution is a billion-dollar industry in the SAARC (South
Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, comprising India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka,
Nepal, Bhutan and Mauritius) region. At a conservative estimate, about 200 girls and women
enter prostitution daily. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. At a conservative estimate, about
200 girls and women enter prostitution daily and this is only the tip of the iceberg.
There is little or non-systematic documentation on the other forms such as labour, organ
trading, adoption, illegal marriages or entertainment. Putting numbers to the magnitude of the
problem in India is an impossible task as there is little reliable quantitative data on the overall
problem of child trafficking in India. Within India, women and children are trafficked for forced
labour, forced prostitution, and forced marriage. Illegal trafficking in human organs also takes
place, as does illicit adoption of infants and children. A researcher of the National Human Rights
Commission conducting research on child trafficking in India stated in January 2004 that, on
average, 30,133 children disappear every year. 27 percent of the missing children are never
Girls are trafficked within the country for forced marriage. Girls from West Bengal
(particularly Murshidabad and Chaubis Pargana) have been sold in Haryana for marriage. Here,
only one example shall be mentioned: a 16-year-old girl was tricked into boarding a train and
was taken from Murshidabad to Delhi, where an agent sold her to a 40-year-old man for
marriage. When the girl refused to marry the man, he and his family beat her. After the girl was
confined in the mans house for 4 days, police, who had been tipped off by neighbors, rescued

India has one of the worlds largest underground markets in human organs. Though
commercial trading in organs was banned in 1994, it is believed that regulation has merely
pushed the trade underground to a market controlled by organized crime gangs. Veritable organ
bazaars operate out of private clinics, especially in cities such
as Mumbai (Bombay) and Chennai (Madras). According to a 2002 report, 2,000 Indians sell their
kidneys every year, mostly to affluent Westerners, who fly to India for the surgery. In a Chennai
(Madras) slum in South India, a U.S. anthropologist met five local women, each of whom had
sold one kidney for US$1,200 (in 1999). Most of them were low-paid domestic servants, whose
husbands were in trouble or in debt. They had sold their kidneys after a financial crisis. During
the interviews, the women claimed that they would do it again if they could as shown above, the
reasons for trafficking are numberless and may be listed as follows:
On Gender:

Child marriage, polygamy, incompatible or pseudo marriages.

Dowry demand.

Unequal power relations and discrimination in the family by gender and age.

Negative attitude towards women and the girl child.

Socialisation which devalues the girl child..

Social stigma against single, unwed, windowed women.


Inadequate government policies in favor of women.

Women released from jail/hazat are given to the guardians/custodians without

Proper/legal verification.

The malpractice of providing affidavit for women entering into the profession of
prostitution without verification of age.

Lack of shelter for women in distress.

Social Service Society is also rooted to its slogan When you give to the poor it is like
lending to the Lord and the Lord will pay back which is reflected in its program design and
delivery, transactions with its stakeholders, resource utilization, disclosures and openness to
public scrutiny. Buying in support from the community, working in healthy partnership with the
government and corporate sectors and sharing its experiences with like-minded organizations
have been the hallmark of Social Service evolution over the past 18 years.

Provide quality education. And avoid discrimination among people.

Vision and mission of the and Quality policy

Vision statements reflect the ideal image of the organization in the future. They create a focal
point for strategic planning and are time bound, with most vision statements projected for a
period of 5 to 10 years. The vision statement communicates both the purpose and values of the
organization. For employees, it gives direction about how they are expected to behave and
inspires them to give their best. Shared with customers, it shapes customers understanding of
why they should work with the organization.

Developing a Vision Statement
1. The vision statement includes vivid description of the organization as it effectively carries
out its operations.
2. Developing a vision statement can be quick culture-specific, i.e., participants may use methods
ranging from highly analytical and rational to highly creative and divergent, e.g., focused
discussions, divergent experiences around daydreams, sharing stories, etc. Therefore, visit with
the participants how they might like to arrive at description of their organizational vision.
3. Developing the vision can be the most enjoyable part of planning, but the part where time
easily gets away from you.
A Prachodanas vision is to transform the society to bring Equality, justice, peace and
ensure that every one lives with dignity.
Social Services visions a Transform the society to bring equity justice ,peace and ensure
at everyone likes with dignity ,towards fulfilling this, all the development efforts of Social
Service were strategically realigned to focus on primarily three Program Areas- Health Education
&Community development and one Program Support Area- Development Support team.
A Mission Statement defines the organization's purpose and primary objectives. Its prime
function is internal to define the key measure or measures of the organizations success and
its prime audience is the leadership team and stockholders. Mission statements are the starting
points of an organisations strategic planning and goal setting process. They focus attention and
assure that internal and external stakeholders understand what the organization is attempting to

Mission and purpose are used interchangeably, though at theoretical level, there is a
difference between two. Mission has external orientation and relates the organization to the
society in which it operates. A mission statement helps the organization to link its activities to the
needs of the society and legitimize its existence. Purpose is also externally focused but it relates
to that segment of the society to which it serves; it defines the business which the institution will

Growth brings with it its own set of complexities and challenges. It also throws up the
basic questions- of what is growth, and how much of it is desirable. It is necessary to draw the
distinction between growth and maturation, as is done in biological sciences. The increase in the
physical dimensions that are measurable as size is important, but just as important is the less
tangible component of maturation.
It is our desire to ensure that institution grows, and at the same time, mature. Have
tried to ensure that growth in size is not at the cost of the quality of our work, the depth of our
interventions, and the heart with which we respond to emerging needs and situations. As more
people join us with growth, the big task in front of us would be to bring them on to the same
wavelength. Development cannot be achieved or understood in compartments.
Health, education, socioeconomic stability, cultural inputs - all are but some of the facets
of Development. One challenge which as Development workers and the community as the socalled beneficiaries face is that of compartmentalization of interventions.
The interventions in Health will reach their intended goal, only with concerted efforts in
the sectors of Education, which is similarly dependent on social awareness, and so on As
organization grow in size, and as it add more numbers to the projects institution implement, the
need to ensure Convergence is emerging as a key area of focus. Efforts to ensure that the right
hand knows what the left hand is doing have been strengthened over the past year, and will need
further attention. Some of the strategies adopted last year to bring in this convergence gave
insights into streamlining the process in the coming days. According to the recently published

A study on effective total quality human resource management cover the area of
implementation of total quality management on NGOs Human resource management
to improve the employee empowerment and achieve the operational excellence in the
organisational performance.

This study focus on the total quality management and human resource management
issues and also concentrate on establish linkage between them.

The significance of this study points out the implemtation and the role of total
quality management in NGO HR issues for any course on HRD in the development
field, and

in order to achieve such things as operational efficiency, cost-

effectiveness, the delivery of projects, targets, key results, objectives, and so on, but
we regard HRD as integral to sustainable development.

Further, since most if not all programmes aim to achieve a sustainable

development process through community-based organizations (CBOs), then the task
of HRD for NGOs extends from the NGO to the CBOs themselves.

This study examines the issue of Total Quality Management (TQM) and the
management of human resources.

It suggests that while TQM has been identified as a major innovation in management
practice, there has been a preoccupation with the hard production-oriented aspects
of TQM, rather than the softer HRM elements.

However, increasing attention is now being paid to HR issues arising from these
cases and point to an enhanced role for the personnel function

Human resources may be defined as the total knowledge, skills, creative abilities, talents and
aptitudes of an organizations workforce, as well as the values, attitudes, approaches and
beliefs of the individuals involved in the affairs of the organization. It is the sum total or
aggregate of inherent abilities, acquired knowledge and skills represented by the talents and
aptitudes of the persons employed in the organization.

The human resources are

multidimensional in nature. From the national point of view, human resources may be defined
as the knowledge, skills, creative abilities, talents and aptitudes obtained in the population;

Human Resource Management: Defined
Human Resource Management has come to be recognized as an inherent part of
management, which is concerned with the human resources of an organization. Its objective is
the maintenance of better human relations in the organization by the development, application
and evaluation of policies, procedures and programs relating to human resources to optimize
their contribution towards the realization of organizational objectives. In other words, HRM is
concerned with getting better results with the collaboration of people. It is an integral but
distinctive part of management, concerned with people at work and their relationships within the
enterprise. HRM helps in attaining maximum individual development, desirable working
relationship between employees and employers, employees and employees, and effective
modeling of human resources as contrasted with physical resources. It is the recruitment,
selection, development, utilization, compensation and motivation of human resources by the
Human Resource Management:

The early part of the century saw a concern for improved efficiency through careful
design of work. During the middle part of the century emphasis shifted to the employees
productivity. Recent decades have focused on increased concern for the quality of working life,
total quality management and workers participation in management. These three phases may be
termed as welfare, development and empowerment.

Human Resource Management:

Human Resource Management is a process of bringing people and organizations together so that
the goals of each are met. The various features of HRM include:
[Type text]

Page 28

[Type the document title]

It is pervasive in nature as it is present in all enterprises.

Its focus is on results rather than on rules.
It tries to help employees develop their potential fully.
It encourages employees to give their best to the organization.
It is all about people at work, both as individuals and groups.
It tries to put people on assigned jobs in order to produce good results.
It helps an organization meet its goals in the future by providing for competent and well-

motivated employees.
It tries to build and maintain cordial relations between people working at various levels in

the organization.
It is a multidisciplinary activity, utilizing knowledge and inputs drawn from psychology,

economics, etc.

Human Resource Management: Scope

The scope of HRM is very wide:
1. Personnel aspect-This is concerned with manpower planning, recruitment, selection,
placement, transfer, promotion, training and development, layoff and retrenchment,
remuneration, incentives, productivity etc.
2. Welfare aspect-It deals with working conditions and amenities such as canteens, creches, rest
and lunch rooms, housing, transport, medical assistance, education, healthand safety, recreation
facilities, etc.
3. Industrial relations aspect-This covers union-management relations, joint consultation,
collective bargaining, grievance and disciplinary procedures, settlement of disputes, etc.
Human Resource Management:
Beliefs The Human Resource Management philosophy is based on the following beliefs:
Human resource is the most important asset in the organization and can be developed and
increased to an unlimited extent.

[Type text]

Page 29

[Type the document title]

A healthy climate with values of openness, enthusiasm, trust, mutuality and collaboration

is essential for developing human resource.

HRM can be planned and monitored in ways that are beneficial both to the individuals

and the organization.

Employees feel committed to their work and the organization, if the organization

perpetuates a feeling of belongingness.

Employees feel highly motivated if the organization provides for satisfaction of their

basic and higher level needs.

Employee commitment is increased with the opportunity to discover and use ones

capabilities and potential in ones work.

It is every managers responsibility to ensure the development and utilisation of the

capabilities of subordinates.
Human Resource Management: Objectives
To help the organization reach its goals.
To ensure effective utilization and maximum development of human resources.
To ensure respect for human beings. To identify and satisfy the needs of individuals.
To ensure reconciliation of individual goals with those of the organization.
To achieve and maintain high morale among employees.
To provide the organization with well-trained and well-motivated employees.
To increase to the fullest the employees job satisfaction and self-actualization.
To develop and maintain a quality of work life.
To be ethically and socially responsive to the needs of society.
To develop overall personality of each employee in its multidimensional aspect.
To enhance employees capabilities to perform the present job.
To equip the employees with precision and clarity in transaction of business.
To inculcate the sense of team spirit, team work and inter-team collaboration.

Table 1 identifies some of the major milestones in the historical development of

HRM. Frederick Taylor, known as the father of scientific management, played a
significant role in the development of the personnel function in the early 1900s. In
his book, Shop Management, Taylor advocated the "scientific" selection and training
of workers. He also pioneered incentive systems that rewarded workers for meeting
and/or exceeding performance standards. Although Taylor's focus primarily was on
optimizing efficiency in manufacturing environments, his principles laid the groundwork for future HRM development. As Taylor was developing his ideas about
scientific management, other pioneers were working on applying the principles of
psychology to the recruitment, selection, and training of workers. The development
of the field of industrial psychology and its application to the workplace came to
fruition during World War I, as early vocational and employment-related testing was
used to assign military recruits to appropriate functions.

The Hawthorne Studies, which were conducted in the 1920s and 1930s at Western
Electric, sparked an increased emphasis on the social and informal aspects of the workplace.
Analysis and interpretations of the studies emphasized "human relations" and the link between
worker satisfaction and productivity. The passage of the Wagner Act in 1935 contributed to a
major increase in the number of unionized workers. In the 1940s and 1950s, collective
bargaining led to a tremendous increase in benefits offered to workers. The personnel function
evolved to cope with labor relations, collective bargaining, and a more complex compensation
and benefits environment. The human relations philosophy and labor relations were the dominant
concerns of HRM in the 1940s and 1950s.
HRM was revolutionized in the 1960s by passage of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and
other anti-discrimination legislationas well as presidential executive orders that required many
organizations to undertake affirmative action in order to remedy past discriminatory practices.

Equal employment opportunity and affirmative action mandates greatly complicated the HRM
function, but also enhanced its importance in modern organizations. As discussed more fully in a
later section, these responsibilities continue to comprise a major part of the HRM job. Finally,
changes in labor force demographics, technology, and globalization since the 1980s have had a
major impact on the HRM function. These factors also are discussed in more detail in a later

aspects of the workplace affecting worker productivity. Increasing the job satisfaction of
workers is cited as a means to increase their productivity.
In the U.S., a tremendous surge in union membership between 1935 and 1950 leads to a


greater emphasis on collective bargaining and labor relations within personnel


management. Compensation and benefits administration also increase in importance as

unions negotiate paid vacations, paid holidays, and insurance coverage.


The Civil Rights movement in the U.S. reaches its apex with passage of the Civil Rights


Act of 1964. The personnel function is dramatically affected by Title VII of the CRA,
which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, and national
origin. In the years following the passage of the CRA, equal employment opportunity

and affirmative action become key human resource management responsibilities.
Three trends dramatically impact HRM. The first is the increasing diversity of the labor
force, in terms of age, gender, race, and ethnicity. HRM concerns evolve from EEO and
affirmative action to "managing diversity." A second trend is the globalization of

business and the accompanying technological revolution. These factors have led to
dramatic changes in transportation, communication, and labor markets. The third trend,
which is related to the first two, is the focus on HRM as a "strategic" function. HRM
concerns and concepts must be integrated into the overall strategic planning of the firm
in order to cope with rapid change, intense competition, and pressure for increased

Human resources and TQM

The literature on TQM emphasizes the need for: (a) personnel policies (selection,
training, appraisal and recognition and career development) to be adapted to the new culture
(Bowen and Lawler, 1992b; Collard, 1992; Evans and Lindsay, 1999; Lawler, 1994;
Schonberger, 1994) and to create a suitable environment for employee motivation (Steininger,
1994), and (b) the involvement of all the staff (Deming, 1982; Ishikawa, 1985; Powell, 1995;
Saraph et al., 1989). Thus, human resource policies and practices must be integrated with quality
schemes (Evans and Lindsay, 1999). Therefore, extensive changes are required in human
resource management, which must 486 The International Journal of Human Resource
Managementbe related to one another and tailored to a quality culture (Schonberger, 1994).
Personnel policies, empowerment and effects of quality systems on employees are analysed

[Type text]

Selection Employees should possess skills for continuous improvement in a TQM
context, such as working in teams, problem solving and improving process aptitudes. Thus, the
selection process should identify employees who have these abilities or at least have values and
behavior consistent with TQM (Ahmad and Schroeder, 2002). Based on this idea, employee
selection should be designed to assess TQM-derived competencies (Bowen and Lawler, 1992b;
Evans and Lindsay, 1999; Rees and Doran, 2001; Schonberger, 1994). However, in some cases,
the effects of TQM on selection tend to be weak or non-existent (Snell et al., 2000). In this sense,
the practice of organizations possessing quality systems suggests that: (a) some of them maintain
the same selection process as they had before implementing the system, for many assume that the
skills required may be rapidly acquired through training programmes; whereas (b) others have
adjusted their selection policies to the TQM context (Blackburn and Rosen, 1993).
Training allows both individual staff and the whole entity to attain maximum potential
because it gives employees the ability to improve the way work is done (Downey-Ennis et al.,
2004). When employees are trained in quality-related issues they can improve quality. This is
why training is a major feature of all TQM programmes (Bowen and Lawler, 1992b) and it is a
must for the development of TQM (Ishikawa, 1985), as shown by the standardized quality
models (EFQM model, ISO 9001, etc.). It must include both the technical and human aspects
(Anderson and Sohal, 1999; Bowen and Lawler, 1992b; Dale, 1999; Moreno, 1993; Schonberger,
1994). Based on selection and training ideas, it could be said that selection and training for
technical and problem-solving skills ensures that the employees have the necessary skills
required for TQM (Snell et al., 2000).
Appraisal and recognition There is a certain degree of disagreement among those who
support the quality philosophy. According to part of the literature, evaluations of individual
performance are negative for rms, and should, therefore, be eliminated, together with any
recognition involved (Deming, 1982), whereas other authors consider
that performance evaluation has positive effects on quality and productivity (Imai, 1986; Juran,
1988). In this sense, several researchers have recognized that a careful evaluation and rewards
systems may be used, provided organizations strive to reach a balance between individual and
collective recognition (Blackburn and Rosen, 1993; Campbell et al., 1998; Waldman, 1993,
[Type text]

Page 34

[Type the document title]

1994), which may be a monetary or a non-monetary one and oriented toward continuous
improvement of quality (Evans and Lindsay, 1999; Schonberger, 1994).
Career development In general, when a quality system is implemented, no great changes can be
perceived in promotion opportunities (Lam, 1995). Nevertheless, the orientation of the quality
system involves placing a greater emphasis on cross-functional career moves and, in some cases,
purely horizontal reassignments (Bowen and Lawler, 1992b) because managerial roles shift from
directing and controlling to coaching and facilitating (Evans and Lindsay, 1999). In view of all
these ideas regarding personnel policies, it can be said that (Blackburn and Rosen, 1993; Knouse,
1995): . Some rms with quality systems adapt their personnel policies to TQM. . Others have
not fully considered the implications of TQM on selection, promotion and career development.
Tar and Sabater: Human aspects in a quality management context 487. The implementation of a
quality system is directly related to training, and also to recognition, in such a way that, as a rule,
rms with quality systems change these policies in order to adjust to the new culture. Employee
involvement Empowerment is a way to obtain employee involvement that acquires a vital role in
a quality environment (Evans and Lindsay, 1999; Fok et al., 2000).
Indeed, it entails a high level of involvement, whereby employees take decisions and are
responsible for their results (Conger and Kanungo, 1988) and can be a tool for quality
improvement (Morris and Haigh, 1996). It includes employees (Bowen and Lawler, 1992a,
Ciampa, 1992; Dean and Evans, 1994): (a) receiving information on the rms operations; (b)
being trained, so that they can contribute better to organizational work;
(c) being empowered to take certain decisions that may inuence the rms activity; and
(d) obtaining rewards, based on their performance, aimed at encouraging and boosting their
creativity and initiative. In this line of thought, various authors have found that TQM leads to a
higher level of empowerment (Fok et al., 2000), and that rms, in order to encourage employee
involvement, usually resort mainly to teams, suggestions schemes, quality training and staff
recognition (Anderson and Sohal, 1999; Chelsom, 1997; Fok et al., 2000; Garc aLorenzo et al.,
2000). In this way, the implementation of empowerment practices can be related to performance
(Guerrero and Barraud-Didier, 2004).

Effects of the quality system Steininger (1994) emphasizes that leaders must reinvent the
workplace in order to transfer more control to employees, which in turn increases motivation.
However, in spite of the importance of employee involvement, the
practice of rms with quality systems does not seem to provide evidence for this theory (Lam,
1995). Research carried out with both managers and employees shows that TQM tends to give
greater autonomy to lower echelons in the organizational hierarchy, but also leads to higher
control by the management over the employees (Rees, 1995; Wilkinson et al., 1992, 1997). This
suggests that involvement is not part of the managements agenda, and that, although a quality
culture entails involvement in decision-making, such involvement is limited by the
managements control over employees (Edwards et al., 1998). Finally, and considering this
review of the literature, the following summary can be offered: . Successful TQM
implementation requires a number of changes in personnel policies and practices because, for
managers to suitably comply with the new principles, they must carry out careful selection,
provide continuous training and reward their employees, so that they can develop themselves,
adapt to the new culture and acquire the necessary knowledge.
TQM has positive effects on employee involvement (Deming, 1982) because it is
necessary for them to be responsible for the quality of their work, and to participate actively in
continuous improvement (Wilkinson et al., 1997). Alongside the benets listed by the TQM
theory, there may be also an intensication of work and higher managerial control. Therefore, a
higher commitment towards these aspects may give the rms a higher level of TQM (Brown et
al., 1998; Escanciano et al., 2001; Othman and Poon, 2000; Taylor and Megan, 1997). Firms in
which TQM has been developed to a greater extent have a greater implementation of human
resource management (Ghobadian and Gallear, 2001; Kudu and Vouzas, 1998) in terms of
selection, training, promotion, pay and incentives, 488 The International Journal of Human
Resource Management teams, suggestion schemes, etc. (Bayo-Moriones and Merino-D az,
2001). Then, a rms focus on human aspects will inuence the degree of TQM implementation.
Also, managers in high quality outcome rms attach greater importance to the human dimension
than their counterparts in low quality results rms (Guest, 1999; Powell, 1995; Rao et al., 1999;
Sako, 1998).
(Dean and Bowen, 1994) have analyzed the total quality management literature,
[Type text]

Page 36

[Type the document title]

claiming that the key points of total quality management are those of customer focus,
continual improvements, and teamwork. Each of these points will be implemented through a
number of practices, like gathering customer items of information and analyzing processes by
applying specific quality techniques. (Raffio, 1993) further includes the involvement of
employees as well as management commitment; as basic principles of total quality
management while (Hart and Bogan, 1992) identify the distinction of total quality
management as a penetrating customer oriented approach to managing quantity for
competitive advantage.
The British Quality Association (BQA) has three alternative definitions of

quality management. The first focuses on soft qualitative attributes, containing

elements such as customer oriented,

cultural as advantage,

removal of performance

barrier, teamwork, training and involvement of employees.

The second BQA definition comprises production aspects such as systematic measuring
and control of the work, setting standards for performance and the use of statistical
procedures to achieve quantity. This definition focuses, contrary to the first, on hard
quantitative attributes. A similar definition on total quality management is provided by
( Steingard and Fitzgibbons, 1993). They define total quality management as a set of
techniques and procedures which should be used to reduce or eliminate variations in
production process. The third BQA definition is a mixture of the two previous definitions
which provide an acknowledgement of the scientific as well as the humanistic
Oakland (1993, p.2-3) defines total quality management as the way for the management
to improve effectiveness, flexibility, and competitive advantages for the organization as a
whole because it complies with the internal and external customer requirements. He sees the
essence of the total quality management concept as a triangle, each corner being a key
point; the management commitment, statistical process control, and teamwork. In this triangle,
the points are connected as a chain but they are also interdependent of one another. Some
have argued that the chain could be broken at any of these points by a person or a
[Type text]

Page 37

[Type the document title]

tool, and therefore fail to meet customer requirements.
But according to ( Oakland, 1993), the internal customer focus throughout the
chain builds an internal customer environment which will provide compensation if the chain
should break.
The triangle has management commitment as the height, a position upon which most
total quality management theorists would agree.
Even though the explicit definition of total quality management is not obvious, there are
some basic principles in total quality management making for a joint approach. (Hill and
Wilkinson, 1995) have identified the principles outlined below:
Customer oriented: Quality means complying with customer requirements;
customers are both internal and external, and quality oriented management will need to
meet customer requirements. Customer orientation does generate throughout the organization
a shared aim for all activities while integrating quality in the design as well as in the
specifications. Customer expectations for a design or specifications must be transformed in
order that the organization may adapt these expectations to activities required for production.
This is accomplished by using a customer perspective because no matter how many
productions and vast improvement the organization makes, it will be to no avail unless
customers are willing to buy the product, based on the idea that a product can do no more
than it has been des igned for. Design and specifications are equally important .
And if an organization focuses on one of these only, it will deteriorate. An organization may
provide the right design quality, a product which customers would want to buy - but could lose
out by not having the right specifications required. Similarly, a product providing the right
specifications only may not meet customer design requirements.
Process oriented: The tasks or processes in an organization are connected in a series
of quality chains working across the conventional internal functional principles. Every
process in a quality chain has a customer, beginning with the internal customer in an
organization, and continuing to be subjected to various stage processes until the product
[Type text]

Page 38

[Type the document title]

actually reaches the external customer. In this manner, total quality management attempts, by
way of teamwork and cooperation, to involve all organization levels in delivering quality to
internal customers, and ultimately to external customers.
Continuous I m p r o v e m e n t s : To






continuous improvements of products and processes. The most efficient method to create
improvement is to let the staff performing the particular work identify and implement the
particular improvement in their daily work. Even through continuous improvement involves
all staff, this should be viewed from the angle that it is the management that has the
responsibility for the development and the change in the organization. The role for the
employees is to assist. To eliminate errors in products or processes and also to give the
worker a chance to use the brains and make them contribute to continuous improvements
within their organization (Lillrank and Canoe 1989, p.29).
Improvement Tools: These tools are statistic process control methods, to be used by
all staff to simplify processes and process reorganizing.
Measuring: Monitoring the cost of quantity and customer satisfaction denotes a recent
effort in total quality management; it is a supplement to the more traditional way of
measuring failure and variations. The cost of quantity is a financial measure of the
quality performance; it may be described as follows:

Preventing expenses checking and testing incoming components, inspecting products

prior to their leaving the organization, routine inspection maintenance; failure

expenses waste, scrap, double work;

Estimating expenses inspection, inspection with vendors, estimate activities.
Organization Approach: This includes implementation of groups, commitment to

quality, planning of cross functional workgroups, changing staff role towards a customer
oriented role, teamwork and an extended cooperation with suppliers about continuous quality

The human resource management (HRM) of an organization is directly or indirectly
responsible for the quality of services the employees of an organization render to their
customers. They recruit and develop the employees in an organization for the type and quality
of services the organization is offering to the consumers.
(Devanna, Fombrum and Tichy, 1984) illustrate, by way of Figure 1 . The various tasks of
human resource management.

Industrial Relations Review and Report (2001) claims that there is ample evidence
[Type text]

Page 40

[Type the document title]

testifying how organizations identify the selection of staff as a key area in total quality
management. On this aspect, (Storey, 2000) mentions how some total quality organizations
used tests in the selection of foremen and hourly-paid workers in order to measure their
abilities to think independently, work in teams and in a general spirit of cooperation. After the
selection and the integration of the new staff in the organization, the human resource
cycle will move its focus on to the organizations performance as manifested by control,
rewards, and development.
Performance: Some theorists have claimed that performance control plays a major
role in the development, communication, and measuring of quality standards (Deblieux,
1991). However, experience has shown that the result of the performance might be unable
to reach the targets and would thus frequently degenerate into an empty ritual (Snape, 1994).
Further, many authors on total quality management, especially W.E. Deming, assert that
control of the performance does not fit the idea of total quality management (Evans and
Lindsay, 1999). W.E Deming maintains that variations in performance will mainly derive from
the work process, and not from the individual employee.
Deming: If an employee is told by the manager to cut the plates exactly 2,536mm
long, and the employee is equipped with nothing but a rip saw, a table, as well as a tape
measure, it would not be possible for the employee to cut all the plates exactly 2,536mm
long. Improvements in the work process would only be gained if the management would
inves t in an electrical saw, a cutting table, and more precise measuring equipment. It is,
however, up to the particular staff member to report whenever the saw blade might, for
instance, be worn down

Improvements should occur through changes of processes rather than through control
of the staff; according to Deming this is the key to develop cooperation teams (Evans and
Lindsay, 1999). Deming argues that it is difficult to gain any kind of cooperation if the
management focuses on blaming the individual employee as was the case in the traditional
control of performance. Deming further argues that this would generate a work environment
of fear in which the staff would rather avoid
[Type text]

concentrating on short-term potential and individual performance an attitude which
would undermine cooperation, creativity, and the committed pattern of behaviour needed
to create continuous improvement (Evans and Lindsay, 1999). Others have asserted that
there is a need for a change leading away from the traditional and individual control of








performance to be manifested in the total quality management work (Glover, 1993).

Western management has, however, generally demonstrated a dislike of the removal of
control with regard to performance. Even in organizations which had implemented total quality
management, such organizations have frequently done so alongside their existing control
system (Bowen and Lawler, 1992). Several authors claim that something should be done
about the control sheets to make these more effective, a proposal aiming to remove the
traditional hierarchical structure and to involve employees further down the organization in
control of the performance. In total quality management seeing the customer, external or

Human Resource Management Functions :

In order to achieve the above objectives, Human Resource Management undertakes the
following activities:
1. Human resource or manpower planning.
2. Recruitment, selection and placement of personnel.
3. Training and development of employees.
4. Appraisal of performance of employees.
5. Taking corrective steps such as transfer from one job to another.

Human Resource Management: Major Influencing Factors In the 21st century HRM will be
influenced by following factors, which will work as various issues affecting its strategy:

Size of the workforce

Rising employees expectations
Drastic changes in the technology as well as Life-style changes.
Composition of workforce. New skills required.
Environmental challenges.
Lean and mean organizations.
Downsizing and rightsizing of the organizations.
Culture prevailing in the organization etc. Human Resource Management: Futuristic
Vision On the basis of the various issues and challenges the following suggestions will be
of much help to the philosophy of HRM with regard to its futuristic vision:

1. There should be a properly defined recruitment policy in the organization that should
give its focus on professional aspect and merit based selection.
2. In every decision-making process there should be given proper weight age to the
aspect that employees are involved wherever possible. It will ultimately lead to sense of
team spirit, team-work and inter-team collaboration.
3. Opportunity and comprehensive framework should be provided for full expression of
employees talents and manifest potentialities.
4. Networking skills of the organizations should be developed internally and externally as
well as horizontally and vertically.
5. For performance appraisal of the employees emphasis should be given to 360 degree
feedback which is based on the review by superiors, peers, subordinates as well as selfreview.
6. 360 degree feedback will further lead to increased focus on customer services, creating
of highly involved workforce, decreased hierarchies, avoiding discrimination and biases
and identifying performance threshold.
7. More emphasis should be given to Total Quality Management. TQM will cover all
employees at all levels; it will conform to customers needs and expectations; it will
ensure effective utilization of resources and will lead towards continuous improvement in
all spheres and activities of the organization.
8. There should be focus on job rotation so that vision and knowledge of the employees
are broadened as well as potentialities of the employees are increased for future job
9. For proper utilization of manpower in the organization the concept of six sigma of









10. The capacities of the employees should be assessed through potential appraisal for
performing new roles and responsibilities. It should not be confined to organizational
aspects only but the environmental changes of political, economic and social
considerations should also be taken into account.

11. The career of the employees should be planned in such a way that individualizing
process and socializing process come together for fusion process and career planning should

should be linked with strategic goals and objectives in order to improve business performance
and develop organizational cultures that foster innovation and flexibility. All the above futuristic
visions coupled with strategic goals and objectives should be based on 3 Hs of Heart, Head and

Data analysis and Interpretations.

Hypothetical provement of linkage between TQM AND HRM
Based on the extensive study, it would therefore suggest that HRM issues improve TQM
implementation. As such, the following hypotheses are proposed.
H1: HRM issues are positively associated with TQM implementation.
The above hypothesis can be specifically written as:
H11: Employee Empowerment is positively associated with TQM implementation
H12: Employee involvement is positively associated with TQM implementation
H13: Staffing is positively associated with TQM implementation
H14: Selection is positively associated with TQM implementation
H15: Job Analysis is positively associated with TQM implementation
[Type text]

H16: Teamwork is positively associated with TQM implementation
H17: Training and development is positively associated with TQM implementation
H18: Performance appraisal is positively associated with TQM implementation
H19: Reward and Recognition system is positively associated with TQM implementation
Employee Empowerment:
Employee empowerment implies the disparity between success and failure in the pursuit
for TQM. Unless employees are given the opportunity to plan and perform their own work
assignments, there can be little initiative for participation in the improvement process. It is
generally accepted that a TQM environment fosters employee empowerment. In fact, five of
Demings 14 points relate directly to the notion of involvement and empowerment.
According to the literature, TQM should promote empowerment of front-line employees,
giving them more responsibility and information (Schuler and Harris, 1992), Fernandez, (1996);
Newall et al, (1991) if quality initiatives to work, there must be sufficient participation. TQM
programs improve employee participation in decision making Lam (1996). Boon et al., (2006)
feels that empowerment have a strong relationship with the propensity of employees to remain
within the organization.
Human resources are the major assets of empowerment that allows team members to
recognize their own responsibilities for achieving company goals. Having the capability to
problem-solve leads people composing the teams to seek more opportunities to complete their
tasks and to sustain preparation of status reports important to management. These are
empowering practices that sustain total involvement in the improvement process which is vital to
effect change and, therefore, to the success of TQM efforts.









Employee Involvement:
[Type text]

Page 46

[Type the document title]

Researchers believe that employee involvement is associated with quality management
activities such as quality circles and communication. Lawler et al., (1995) feels that the most
interesting consequences from his study are how employee involvement and total quality
management work together to impact on organisational performance. Evans (1985) and Hogan
(1992), employees participate in advisory groups to voice concerns and exchange views on
quality issues.
Employee involvement has also been extensively studied in association with TQM and
human resources management (Wood and Peccei, 1995; Cheng and Tummala, 1998; Wilkinson,
1998).Beekun, Sundstrom et al. (1990), self-managing work teams typically produce positive
results in terms of quality and costs, Partlow (1996) suggested that TQM should be supported by
human resources practices such as employee involvement.
Sun, Hongi et al., (2000) result supports the proposition that employee involvement is a
prerequisite for TQM and other quality management programmes. To implement employment
involvement, management needs to hold a new management philosophy and new attitude
towards employees and employees should be provided with the necessary authority, information,
skills, and reward.
Hence, H12: Employee involvement is positively correlated with TQM implementation.
Industrial Relations Review and Report (1991) reports that how organizations identify the
selection of staff as a key area in total quality management. Bowen et al, (1992) stated that
recruitment is consequently imperative along with specific media for advertising with a view to
hiring staff and more refined recruitment and selection processes are prerequisite for TQM
(Wilkinson et al., 1994). Clinton et al., (1994) argues that successful recruitment and selection of
human resources requires proper knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes compatible with a
TQM philosophy.

[Type text]

Page 47

[Type the document title]

According to Ahmad et al., (2002) the recruitment and selection process should be
identify prospective employees who can work in team, ability to solve the problems and ideas to
foster quality management philosophy.
Hence, H13: Staffing is positively correlated with TQM implementation

Devanna, (1984) claims, that the attempt to develop a quality culture starts with
the selection of employees with the appropriate characteristics. It is necessary to consider
employees behaviour, attitudes and values for any TQM program to be successful. Reference
was also made to the recruitment process, appointing people with specific qualities and values
that will contribute to the continuing success of the organization (Smyth et al., 1996).
Wilkinson et al., (1994) states that selection and the integration of the new staff in the
organization, the human resource cycle will move its focus on to the organizations performance
as manifested by control, rewards, and development. More sophisticated recruitment and
selection techniques are needed for TQM.
Cascio (1991), Cardy et al., (1991) states the objective of traditional personnel selection
processes and differentiation of applicants on one or more dimensions such as knowledge, skill,
ability, or motivation. Recruitment should be externally oriented in the main (Schuler and
Jackson, 1987). However, some compromise over the internal market is required in order to
foster TQM (Schuler and Harris, 1991)
Snape et al., (1995) states that the bid to build up a quality culture should be by selecting
and recruiting employees with the necessary attitudinal and behavioural characteristics, Simmons
et al., (1995) and Snape et al., (1995) article implies that candidates must fit the organizational
culture and the TQM system.
Hence, H14: Selection is positively correlated with TQM implementation.

Job Analysis:
Job analysis is the process of studying jobs in order to gather and analyze information
about the content of a job, the human requirement, and the conditions within which the job is
performed (Cascio, 1991; Schneider et al., 1992: and Heneman et al., 1994). Deming argues is
counter-productive to a team and system approach to quality output. Deming suggests that job
descriptions should establish limits on performance variations instead of detailing specific tasks
and duties. If an organization is dissatisfied with the level of an employee's performance,
management should then change the system to allow for increased performance.
However, as stated by Dobbins et al. (1991), the primary focus of traditional job analyses
is on an individual employee level and, therefore, individuals are viewed as isolated units within
the organization, each with individually defined responsibilities. By extending this perspective,
one can see that selection and evaluation of employees is based on individual criteria. Blackburn
et at., (1993) claims that Baldrige Award winning organizations have elements of job
descriptions which include innovation, creativity problem solving, customer service
competencies, cross-functional work teams striving for total quality and to determine efficient
areas of cross-training for their employees.
Hence, H15: Job Analysis is positively correlated with TQM implementation.
Team Work:
The dominant concerns of most businesses focus on efficiency, quality and profitability.
The key in any tough competitive market is to minimize costs in order to maximize profits. The
two words, quality and profitability, have not always been used as synonyms; and the quest to
find a way to narrow these gaps has been aided by the implementation of teamwork (Conti Betty
et al., (1997).
Dean et al., (1994) in their article claims that teamwork is necessary because it involves
the collaboration between managers and non-managers, between functions, as well as with
[Type text]

Page 49

[Type the document title]

customers and suppliers (Dean and Bowen, 1994). Within the context of TQM, teamwork is an
important outcome and a condition for continuous improvement. It facilitates collaborative
efforts to solve quality problems (Waldman, 1994).
Teamwork is central to TQM (Aubrey et al., 1988; Wilkinson, 1992). There is a
consensus in the literature that multidisciplinary teamwork in teams composed of members from
different organizational functional areas promotes TQM (Mohanty and Sethi, 1996; Schonberger,
1994; Simmons et al., 1995), Boon et al. (2007), teamwork was perceived as the dominant TQM
practice, which has a strong association with job satisfaction.
Hence, H16: Teamwork is positively correlated with TQM implementation.
Training and Development
Training and development are accepted by most theorists as being essential in an
implementation of total quality management. Demings 14 points for managers include, institute
training. Too often, workers have learned their job from another worker who was never trained
properly. They are forced to follow unintelligible instructions. They cant do their jobs because
no one tells them how.
TQM can expose organizational inadequacy in training. Mandal et al., (1998),
Schonberger, (1994) states companies committed to TQM invest in training, Samson and
Terziovski (1993) claims that training is vital for the internal dissemination of quality ideas and
its practices, Schonberger, (1994), Schuler et al., (1991), Schuler et al., (1987), Snape et al.,
(1995) - TQM training is not a single effort, but should be conducted on a continuous basis.
Alan Brown (1994) writes that introducing TQM requires an increased training effort for
several reasons. First, awareness programmes are needed simply to inform people of what TQM
is, how it can be introduced and what it can do. Employee training is fundamental for many
TQM programs such as the adoption of new quality concepts, the set-up and practices of
customer satisfaction systems, the use of statistical quality control, or the change of culture or
quality control circle (Bowen et al., 1992 and Yang, 2006).

[Type text]

Page 50

[Type the document title]

Hence, H17: Training and development is positively correlated with TQM
Performance Appraisal:
Bowman, (1994) and Boudreaux, (1994) writes that total quality proponents take a
different view of how performance appraisal should be conducted. Deming (1986) highlights that
the importance of the system rather than the individual as the critical factor in determining
performance. Research has shown that rating performance is difficult in distinguishing systemic
causes of employee performance from individual causes (Carson et al., 1991). Regardless of their
shortcomings, performance appraisals are recognized by most TQM proponents to serve
imperative functions in the management of human resources (Eckes, 1994).
Soltani et al., (2004), Soltani et al., (2003), reports that the traditional performance
appraisal systems are likely to obstruct the aims of TQM by placing a heavy emphasis on the
individual employee as the main contributor to organizational performance The main problems
of performance appraisal, is that it ignore the existence of variability in the system, it holds
workers responsible for errors that may be the result of faults within the system and it
undermines teamwork. However,Blackburn et al., (1993), Wilkinson et al., (1994), Simmons et
al., (1995) conclude that performance appraisal is compatible with TQM if it is based on quality
Although it argued that formal performance evaluation systems facilitate improved total
quality performance, Schuler and Jackson, (1987) and Simmons et al., (1995) states that
performance appraisal can be related to individual performance, and should be focused on
measuring organizational and group performance. Solatani, (2003) concludes that performance
appraisal is used fro training and development through formal evaluation but at the same time
Snape et al., (1995) argues that compensation and incentive plans have also been a controversial
issue in the quality management.
Deming (1986) opposes pay incentives, considering that recognition rather than reward is
important. However, Ehigie et al., (2005) emphasis on the alignment between the reward system
and TQM is required. Consequently, rewards should foster cooperation, employee involvement
[Type text]

Page 51

[Type the document title]

and teamwork, not emphasize individually oriented compensation (Wilkinson et al., 1994, Yang,
(Hence, H18: Performance appraisal is positively correlated with TQM implementation.
Rewards and Recognition:
Organizations typically design and implement compensation and reward programs as a
means of focusing employee attention on specific behaviors that the Organization considers
necessary to achieve its desired outcome or objective (Henderson, 1994). Deming (1986) states
that work standards, MBO should be eliminated, since incentive programs are based on
expectance and reward theory, the assumption is that when rewards and incentives are linked
with the achievement, reward and recognition shall strengthen quality proportionate to shortrange monetary concern (Evans et al,, 2002).
Meanwhile, Herzbergs (1996) writes that recognition is perceived as one of essential
motivators which determine positive behavior, accordingly, employees then receive
compensation based on their individual Performance in comparison to some preestablished
objective, if the objective is the reduction of errors and the increase of quality, the consideration
of system variance factors becomes an essential consideration in order to correctly reward
individual performance (Henderson, 1994).
Total quality management removes the traditional career ladder because of the flat flexible
structure within the organization. Total quality management sets, on the other hand, the cross
functional experience as a reward. A key element in the cycle is that of rewards in order to retain
and motivate the staff, especially in work areas facing major competition (Bowen et al., 1992). In
the attempt to hold on to employees, rewards such as cash may play an important role. Bowen et
al., (1992) stresses upon that if any reward system must persuade both team as well as group
work in addition to quality improvements.

The present study strongly proposes a comprehensive attitude for matching the
dimensions of TQM and HR issues. The strength of HRM practices lies in the prospective
modification and adaptation within the TQM framework. The paper emphasizes the fact that
TQM has specific relationships with HR issues in continuous improvement. Improvement in
performance can be enhanced by enhancing the performance of the people.
Based on the findings, organizations can rank and assess their performance on the four
critical elements. The survey should be repeated on a regular basis and two times per year is a
suggested interval. Organizations can then use the longitudinal results to assess whether changes
were successful and to identify areas for future improvement. As TQM results vary, companies
must take the responsibility for assessment and quantitative evaluation of implementation results.
This proposed survey is an attempt to validate improvement efforts. Performed frequently, this
assessment will allow practitioners to chart efforts and make implementation modifications when
needed to ensure ongoing TQM emphasis and success. For scholars and TQM researchers, this
methodology will allow needed TQM quantification. Further studies are needed to assess factors
for TQM success.
