The Power of Fate in Oedipus the King The concept of fate has existed since the time of the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed very strongly in fate, which can be defined as either a power beyond human control that determines events, or the outcome or end. In "Oedipus Rex," King Oedipus lives and dies by fate. Fate influences the entire plot, thereby allowing for some interesting developments that may be unpredictable to the audience. In Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex", fate truly is a huge factor in many scenes and events.Ã According to ancient Greek belief, the word of God was fate, and fate was the word of God.Ã Therefore, every event that ever happened was predetermined and unchangeable.Ã Oedipus himself has been completely victimized by fate.Ã In the beginning of the play, he was "fated" to kill his father and marry his own mother and conceive children with her.Ã Since it was the word of Apollo, the god, to the Greeks it meant that it was unchangeable.Ã Oedipus escaped Corinth, the supposed city of his birth, and ran far away.Ã He happened upon an old man in the crossroads-a fated event.Ã Though he did not know it at the time, when he killed the man, it turned out to be his own father-a prophecy he was destined by fate to fulfill (Elsom, 85). "The heralds no sooner reported Laius dead than you appeared and they hailed you king of Thebes."Ã (Sophocles, 187).Ã Soon after he unwittingly killed his father, Oedipus happened upon a creature called the Sphinx, who posed a riddle for him.Ã Though none of the other great minds in the entire world could do this, Oedipus answered her riddle and destroyed her, freeing Thebes.Ã Thus he subsequently became king of Thebes.Ã What a fated chain of events! (Elsom, 86). Oedipus was ... ...s the word of God himself, many ironic events occurred due to the twists of fate.Ã Sophocles masterfully weaves pieces of a legend together to create a dramatic tale of fate and irony called "Oedipus Rex".

The Mormon can be understood by taking a critical review on their values institution norms and artic-facts .Ã According to the Mormon their value the importance of a family, the reverence of God as well as the appearance of the teaching as taught in the book of Mormons. To the Mormons all that seems important to them is their interconnectedness to God. The Mormons value the relationships they maintain with the outside world.Ã According to them, it is how well they relate with the outside world that will attract more converts to their belief. The norms of the Mormons are very different from that of the mainstream churches.Ã The Mormons dress and carry themselves around differently.Ã They have very high expectations of how the society should carry out their affairs. For instance the Mormons would not attend any other religious celebration apart from those strictly recommended for in their religion. According to the Mormons they have laws, which regulate their conduct and determine what is wrong and what is right.Ã In other words the culture of the Mormons significantly varies from that of other cultures.Ã According to the Mormons, material possessions and wealth is not very important but what matters is the relationship one has with God. The Mormons have some ideological settings as well as sociological settings that are different from those other cultures.Ã While the Mormons do not have strong attachment to material things, they have a single way of looking at things, which is different from other cultures.Ã They have some symbols, which they adore and hold dear to them. for instance, they have the symbol of the cross which they value for they see it as their link to their faith. The Mormons have their kind of music, which defines their belief in worship.Ã For instance, they do not advocate for the use of musical instruments for they hold that as a way of distracting the attention from worship.Ã They have their own legacy of commitment, which leads them to view service to God as very crucial. For instance, the Mormon culture calls for a special code of dress for the men, which is aimed at separating them from common cultures.Ã Their distinct behaviour and belief in the Book of Mormons is a clear attribution of their special sub-culture.Ã The Mormons do not ascribe to nationalism and they distance themselves from political affairs. According to Mormons the way one interacts with the surrounding world goes a long way in determining the kind and quality of life one is likely to lead. Mormons have a special way of treating members of other religious beliefs.Ã According to them, anyone can convert to Mormon despite their colour, sex or socio-economic status.Ã Ã Mormon culture is therefore defined by their commitment to the religion, the distinct code of dressing, the distinct way of talking as well as the distinct manner of reaching out to others. Spirituality is given prominence in Mormonism while Mysticism is less emphasized.Ã Unlike other cultures, the Mormon culture is more spiritual oriented and this makes the life of a Mormon worshipper revolve around the temple, the home and the Mormon community.Ã According to the Mormons, there is nothing wrong with the way other people carry themselves differently but the question is, whether that conduct is in line with the preaching of the Book of Mormons. The Mormons hold the view that paganism is evil and there is no room for it.Ã Another interesting characteristic of the Mormon sub-culture is the place women are given in the religion. According to the Mormons, women should play a less important role in the running of the church.Ã Mormons is largely a male-dominated religion, which holds that man is superior to the woman. To the Mormons the womanÃ¢â¬â¢s place in the church is considered as that of offering support to enable the spread of their faith.Ã It therefore emerges that Mormons differ significantly from other mainstream churches in that they have not welcomed the emancipation of the woman.Ã The Mormons have succeeded in advancing their way of thinking and for centuries have stood up against pressure of influence and calls for the sub-culture to conform to conventional wisdom.Ã It therefore appears that the Mormons have been marginalized as a result of their commitment to adhere to their strict culture although this marginalization has taken the perspective of religious dimension. The Mormons have also been marginalized in terms of political representation as well as in the war against gender discrimination, partly because of their high advocacy for privacy and secrecy.Ã However, the Mormon sub-culture has some form of freedom of its own especially considering the fact that in the previous centuries it tended to advocate for polygamy, a kind of freedom unheard of in other mainstream religious cultures.Ã Their efforts to lead a distinct kind of life has earned them respect in some quarters although some critics view that as suppression of fundamental human rights. Therefore Mormon sub-culture is characterized by myth, values such as commitment to the faith of Mormon, ritualism especially in terms of the dressing code, emphasis on secrecy and privacy as well as strict call for every faithful to remain true to the faith upon conversion.

In my opinion a good friend is someone who is always around you. Another quality for a good friend is someone who lets you barrow money if you barrow them money. The last quality is someone who does favors for you if you do favors for them. The first quality to a good friend is someone who is always around you. Hanging out with each other. Another thing is texting them all the time. Also, playing video games. The last thing is going to the movies. The second quality is someone who gives you money if you give them money. Some examples are when I go to McDonalds or Subway and I donÃ¢â¬â¢t have money my friend gives me money and if he doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t have money I will pay for him. Also my friend always drives me around and I always give him money for gas. The last good quality for a friend is someone who does favors for you if you do favors for them. For example: if I give him money he gives me money, if I help him on homework he helps me on homework, if I buy him lunch he buys me lunch. A good friend is someone who is always around you. Someone who lets you barrow money if you barrow them money. Someone who does favors for you if you do favors for them. Those three qualities are the main three qualities that I am looking for in a friend.
Custom Vans, Inc. , specializes in converting standard vans into campers. Depending on the amount of work and customizing to be done, the customizing could cost less than $1,000 to more than $5,000. In less than four years, Tony Rizzo was able to expand his small operation in Gary, Indiana, to other major outlets in Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Detroit. Innovation was the major factor in TonyÃ¢â¬â¢s success in converting a small van shop into one of the largest and most profitable custom van operations in the Midwest.Tony seemed to have a special ability to design and develop unique features and devices that were always in high demand by van owners. An example was Shower-Rific, which was developed by Tony only six months after Custom Vans, Inc. , was started. These small showers were completely self-contained, and they could be placed in almost any type of van and in a number of different locations within a van. Shower-Rific was made of fiberglass and contained towel racks, built-in soap and shampoo holders, and a unique plastic door.Each Shower-Rific took 2 gallons of fiberglass and 3 hours of labor to manufacture. Most of the Shower-Rifics were manufactured in Gary in the same warehouse where Custom Vans, Inc. , was founded. The manufacturing plant in Gary could produce 300 Shower-Rifics in a month, but this capacity never seemed to be enough. Custom Van shops in all locations were complaining about not getting enough Shower Rifics, and because Minneapolis was farther away from Gary than the other locations, Tony was always inclined to ship Shower-Rifics to the other locations before Minneapolis.This infuriated the manager of Custom Vans at Minneapolis, and after many heated discussions, Tony decided to start another manufacturing plant for Shower-Rifics at Fort Wayne, Indiana. The manufacturing plant at Fort Wayne could produce 150 Shower-Rifics per month. The manufacturing plant at Fort Wayne was still not able to meet current demand for Shower-Ri fics, and Tony knew that the demand for his unique camper shower would grow rapidly in the next year. After consulting with his lawyer and banker, Tony concluded that he should open two new manufacturing plants as soon as possible.Each plant would have the same capacity as the Fort Wayne manufacturing plant. An initial investigation into possible manufacturing locations was made, and Tony decided that the two new plants should be located in Detroit, Michigan; Rockford, Illinois; or Madison, Wisconsin. Tony knew that selecting the best location for the two new manufacturing plants would be difficult. Transportation costs and demands for the various locations should be important considerations. The Chicago shop was managed by Bill Burch. This Custom Van shop was one of the first established by Tony, and it continued to outperform the other locations.The manufacturing plant at Gary was supplying 200 Shower-Rifics each month, although Bill knew that the demand for the showers in Chicago was 300 units. The transportation cost per unit from Gary was $10, and although the transportation cost from Fort Wayne was double that amount, Bill was always pleading with Tony to get an additional 50 units from the Fort Wayne manufacturer. The two additional manufacturing plants would certainly be able to supply Bill with the additional 100 showers he needed. The transportation costs would, of course, vary, depending on which two locations Tony picked.The transportation cost per shower would be $30 from Detroit, $5 from Rockford, and $10 from Madison. Wilma Jackson, manager of the Custom Van shop in Milwaukee, was the most upset about not getting an adequate supply of showers. She had a demand for 100 units, and at the present time, she was only getting half of this demand from the Fort Wayne manufacturing plant. She could not understand why Tony didnÃ¢â¬â¢t ship her all 100 units from Gary. The transportation cost per unit from Gary was only $20, while the transportation cost from Fort Wayne was $30. Wilma was hoping that Tony would select Madison for one of the manufacturing locations.She would be able to get all of the showers needed, and the transportation cost per unit would only be $5. If not Madison, a new plant in Rockford would be able to supply her total needs, but the transportation cost per unit would be twice as much as it would be from Madison. Because the transportation cost per unit from Detroit would be $40, Wilma speculated that even if Detroit became one of the new plants, she would not be getting any units from Detroit. Custom Vans, Inc. , of Minneapolis was managed by Tom Poanski. He was getting 100 showers from the Gary plant. Demand was 150 units.Tom faced the highest transportation costs of all locations. The transportation cost from Gary was $40 per unit. It would cost $10 more if showers were sent from the Fort Wayne location. Tom was hoping that Detroit would not be one of the new plants, as the transportation cost would be $60 per unit. Rockford and Madison would have a cost of $30 and $25, respectively, to ship one shower to Minneapolis. The Detroit shop's position was similar to MilwaukeeÃ¢â¬â¢sÃ¢â¬âonly getting half of the demand each month. The 100 units that Detroit did receive came directly from the Fort Wayne plant.The transportation cost was only $15 per unit from Fort Wayne, whereas it was $25 from Gary. Dick Lopez, manager of Custom Vans, Inc. , of Detroit, placed the probability of having one of the new plants in Detroit fairly high. The factory would be located across town, and the transportation cost would be only $5 per unit. He could get 150 showers from the new plant in Detroit and the other 50 showers from Fort Wayne. Even if Detroit was not selected, the other two locations were not intolerable. Rockford had a transportation cost per unit of $35, and Madison had a transportation cost of $40.Tony pondered the dilemma of locating the two new plants for several weeks before deciding t o call a meeting of all the managers of the van shops. The decision was complicated, but the objective was clearÃ¢â¬âto minimize total costs. The meeting was held in Gary, and everyone was present except Wilma. Tony: Thank you for coming. As you know, I have decided to open up two new plants at Rockford, Madison, or Detroit. The two locations, of course, will change our shipping practices, and I sincerely hope that they will supply you with the Shower-Rifics that you have been wanting.I know you could have sold more units, and I want you to know that I am sorry for this situation. Dick: Tony, I have given this situation a lot of consideration, and I feel strongly that at least one of the new plants should be located in Detroit. As you know, I am now only getting half of the showers that I need. My brother, Leon, is very interested in running the plant, and I know he would do a good job. Tom: Dick, I am sure that Leon could do a good job, and I know how difficult it has been since the recent layoffs by the auto industry.Nevertheless, we should be considering total costs and not personalities. I believe that the new plants should be located in Madison and Rockford. I am farther away from the other plants than any other shop, and these locations would significantly reduce transportation costs. Dick: That may be true, but there are other factors. Detroit has one of the largest suppliers of fiberglass, and I have checked prices. A new plant in Detroit would be able to purchase fiberglass for $2 per gallon less than any of the other existing or proposed plants. Tom: At Madison, we have an excellent labor force.This is due primarily to the large number of students attending the University of Madison. These students are hard workers, and they will work for $1 less per hour than the other locations that we are considering. Bill: Calm down, you two. It is obvious that we will not be able to satisfy everyone in locating the new plants. Therefore, I would like to sugge st that we vote on the two best locations. Tony: I donÃ¢â¬â¢t think that voting would be a good idea. Wilma was not able to attend, and we should be looking at all of these factors together in some type of logical fashion.

Abolitionist DBQ In the united States from 1861 to 1865 the American Civil War took place over a disagreement between Northerners and Southerners ot their interpretation ot the Consitution and view on slavery. There were many factors that played a role in creating and helping the war start and end, and one specifically Is the mass amounts of rebellions and abolitionists.The Abolitionist Movement, whose ranks were made up of whites and blacks, not only acted as a catalyst for the emancipation of slavery but resulted In an Inevitable demonstrative civil war that Is accepted and supported y the abolitionists for the greater cause. Abolitionists and their literary accomplishments sped the end result of the civil war. There was a range of intensity In the varying abolitionists. For example, some Ilke Abraham Lincoln sought the gradual abolition of slavery, which was associated with a certain organization that catered to do this (l).Abraham Lincoln and the Quakers supported the American co lonization society founded In 1817. other abolitionists, more radical, favored an immediate end to the unjust institution of slavery; they did so by spreading the wareness and message through literature and rebellions. Some important radical abolitionist are: Theodore Dwight weld, a simple, self-educated man that wrote American Slavery As It Is, which is a pamphlet informing in ignorant of slavery written in 1839.Another huge advocate are the Beechers', but most Importantly Harriet Beecher Stowe who wrote uncle Tom's Cabin, a book that caused a huge reaction against the abolition of slavery. In addition, William Lloyd Garrison published the newspaper, The Liberator, that had a heavy response. Moreover, Frederick Douglas, a orn slave, wrote the autobiography The Life of Frederick Douglas. In all, there were many more abolitionists but these were the most radical of them all.Harriet Beecher Stowe's uncle Torn's Cabin showed the Injustice in slavery and made it apparent to all people, which caused a response in the masses (P). This book is one of concrete pushes towards the abolishment of slavery and gains a mass base of believers. Likewise, Garrison's newspaper, The Liberator, told people the truth about slavery and states he Ã¢â¬Å"WILL BE HEARDÃ¢â¬ (E). Coincidentally, Nat Turner's Rebellion out broke at he same time as The Liberator, which caused some Southerners to take action and pursue war.It also brought a lot of believers and followers. The power of literature brought great change throughout the nation at this time. Frederick Douglas makes this apparent because his autobiography upset the South and gave strength to the North. He states that without antislavery movements the war would not have progress as fast and slavery would have stayed a nation of slaves Looking at the joining of California as a state, It brought much conflict between this inevitable war nd abolltlonlsts only helped progress It.Kansas and Nebraska Act also split the nation badly. I n all, the abolitionist made an impression and acted as a catalyst to the end of slavery because even Danlel Webster noticed that everything was changing in which he said he and the South would tight back (D). With all ot the abolitionists movement it only caused the inevitable war _ In addition. Congress brought power to the lesser of the time (H). For example, Wilberforce University, a black college, empowered and brought bonds to owner the war. Congress noticed and needed to fght back.So the south responded with war (N). For example, the firing of Ft. sumpter that started the civil war. In return the North used immigrants such as the slaves, Irish, Germans, to supply the war with masses (G). The North in the long run had the masses due to the ratio slaves had over all other populations, and the manufacturing advantage they had (E). The food supply, textile advantages all played a role to win over long time over the South and kill their morale and win the battle. In all, the aboli tionists started and helped progress the war and end slavery.In the union from 1861 to 1865 the American Civil War took place because a disagreement between Northerners and Southerners of their interpretation of the Constitution and view on slavery. Many factors that played a role in creating and helping the war start and end, and one specifically is the mass amounts of rebellions and abolitionists. The Abolitionist Movement, whose ranks were made up of whites and blacks, not only acted as a catalyst for the emancipation of slavery but resulted in an inevitable demonstrative civil war that is accepted and supported by the abolitionists for the greater cause.

The sky is the limit for children. The benefits of children attending full day kindergarten are far greater than those children that attend half day. Some parents and educators disagree; they say that children should not be forced into their educational career so young. Whether for or against full-day kindergarten, the common goal for all parents is the well being for each individual child. Every child has different needs and capabilities. Parents have to make an informed decision on full day or half day kindergarten. That decision can be a difficult one. Ultimately that decision is the starting point for the next twelve or more years of education for these young children. Connecticut does not have a law mandating all towns have full day kindergarten. The budget process has to make full day kindergarten a priority. The curriculum for kindergarten is limited during half day sessions for children. Because of the time limitations during half day, these children are getting significant amounts of homework to bring home. Before and aftercare is needed due to the short school day for the half day kindergartners, causing parents to pay for childcare. The most important point is that childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s cognitive learning is so crucial at age five. They can absorb so much information at a kindergarten level. Taking advantage of that will give them the best opportunities for the educational career and give them a head start. Kindergarten was originated in 1837 (Burkam 3). Children develop their mental, social, and emotional faculties through play, music, movement, interaction with the outdoors, and opportunities to engage in independent and creative pursuits (Burkam 3). The goal of kindergarten is to prepare children for first grade academics (Burkam 5). Children show great resilience so can therefore adapt to any formal routine, especially education. We must constructively use this critical stage in their lives to have them absorb all the information they can. Most towns in eastern Connecticut have full day kindergarten except Montville. There is no set standard in Connecticut law for all towns to have at least one full-day kindergarten. East Lyme, Niantic, Norwich, Waterford, Ledyard, and Groton have already established a full day program for kindergarten. Montville being the only town in the surrounding area that does not have a full day option available makes it very difficult to those parents in that town to make arrangements for care of their children. Planning a town budget for full day kindergarten is not as complicated as it may seem. Child care is financed primarily by families, who are estimated to be paying between $40 and $50 billion annually (Mitchell 8). Only a small percentage of those funds being spent could be used for funding all schools with full day kindergarten programs. Demonstrating better ways to increase and combine local, state, public and private sources to finance all types of programs so that they can meet higher standards and that all families can afford kindergarten and preschool education (Mitchell 12). Some educators say the biggest obstacle is hiring teachers. They would need twice the amount already staffed. Splitting up the groups of half day classes and teachers could be a solution to that issue. There would not need to be any additional teachers hired in that case. There is so much for children to learn at the age of five. A full day of learning, social interaction, and play is so beneficial. Research comparing half-day and full-day kindergarten shows those children benefit from a developmentally appropriate, full-day program, most notably in terms of early academic achievementÃ¢â¬âa foundation for school and life success (Villegas 1). Full-day kindergarten can afford children the academic learning time needed to prepare for mastery of primary-grade reading and math skills (Villegas 1) In particular, the weight of evidence shows that full-day kindergarten benefits children in these ways: contributes to increased school readiness, children that are adapted to full day kindergarten are already prepared for the transition into regular grade level schooling, most importantly, they understand rules and behavior, which leads to a higher academic achievement. Standardized tests and classroom grades find that full day students achieve higher and improve student attendance. There is better attendance in full-day kindergarten due to the parents understanding that there is so much more information and teaching provided during a longer day and does not want their child to miss, supporting a childs literacy and language development has long lasting effects that are greater in children that attend full day kindergarten (Villegas 2). One study showed higher reading achievement persisting through third grade and in some cases even seventh grade (Villegas 1). Enrolling a child in full-day kindergarten benefits them socially and emotionally. Full day gives children a balance of structured play and self play. Being with classmates for more hours in a classroom forces them to build positive relationships. Those relationships last sometimes all the way through twelfth grade. Decreases costs by reducing retention and remediation rates (Villegas 1, 2). One study, which found full day students to be more than twice as likely to remain on grade through third grade, showed that this academic benefit helped to offset 19 percent of the first yearÃ¢â¬â¢s cost of extending the kindergarten day (Villegas 2). For those children in half-day kindergarten, they need to have before and after care in some families, especially when both parents work full time. If there were full day kindergarten, it would eliminate some of that cost of after care. Due to these children needing to go to multiple places throughout the day for care and schooling becomes the issue of transportation. During a parents work day, that child could be bused to as much as three different locations just for child care. Parents prefer longer kindergarten programs because children have to make fewer transitions within a day and they believe their children will be better prepared for first grade (Mitchell 5). Day care programs are valuable, but do not have the curriculum and equal age structure that kindergarten does. Proponents of full-day kindergarten believe that children, as a result of their various childcare and preschool experiences, are ready for more demanding and cognitively oriented educational programs (Burkam 6). Having group play with children ages 0-5 is not beneficial educationally. Children at age five are at an important learning stage in their lives. The more education they can receive in kindergarten the better prepared for school they will be. Full-day advocates suggest several advantages for the longer kindergarten day: it allows teachers more opportunity to assess childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s educational needs and individualize instruction, it makes small-group learning experiences more feasible, it engages children in a broader range of learning experiences, it provides opportunities for in-depth exploration of curriculum, it provides opportunities for closer teacher-parent relationships, it benefits working parents who may need a longer school day (Burkam 6). Reading, math, science are subjects that are the beginning fundamentals in learning Researchers found that children who attended full-day kindergarten scored higher on reading comprehension and mathematics concepts and applications (Burkam 9). Having more hours in a school day allows teachers to take a more one on one approach for the children to really delve deep into counting, the alphabet, writing, speaking, and so forth. The foundation of learning stems from kindergarten. Cognitive development is the most important issue with having children in a full-day kindergarten program. Kindergarten is more than play and social interaction with peers, this time must be used to take full advantage of a childÃ¢â¬â¢s potential in learning. Education should be the first priority and focus in a childÃ¢â¬â¢s life. The bigger picture is laying the groundwork for childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s educational experience. The younger the child the more prepared they will be for the future and the most successful in life.

Evaluating Human Resource Managment - Essay Example orms of flexibility exist (technology, organizations and systems) which are also important factors to bear in mind when considering the flexible workforce. Since the early 1980s, research by John Atkinson and others (Atkinson 1984: Atkinson and Meager, 1986 etc) suggests that firms are increasingly seeking and achieving greater flexibility from their workforce. Four forms of flexibility were identified, which have been packaged together to develop a flexible firm model: Numerical means the emergence of new forms of contract based on limited employment periods such as temporary contracting, part-time contracts, and zero hour contracts etc. This allows the firm to move people in and out rapidly and respond to changing market demands. Numerical Flexibility involves changing the quantity of employee input. Quantitative changes include: Hiring numbers of employees Specified hours of work Organization uses part-time employees Organization uses temporary employees, whose contracts can be terminated, using liberal provisions on hiring and dismissals. The extent of numerical flexibility is a function of the severity of certain restrictions. Numerical Flexibility is typically constrained by rights to protection against unfair treatment, Numerical flexibility constrained by rights to redundancy benefits, and by restrictions on freedom to restructure through requirements to consult, negotiate, or gain legal approval Functional means the emergence of teamwork and the broadening of established job boundaries and skill definitions. Flexible organization of the workplace involves high skills and a collaborative approach to work. Its features are: Broadening job design and job boundaries: Willingness among employees to adopt new working practices such as team working and... This paper approves that people whose work is highly specialized, repetitive and routine may become dissatisfied with their job. This dissatisfaction often shows itself by reduced output, increased absenteeism and high staff turnover. This very quickly reduces effectiveness of a work area, and influences the effectiveness of the whole organization. A number of approaches have been developed to try to overcome this problem. Among these are job enlargement, job enrichment, job rotation, and semi-autonomous work groups. This essay makes a conclusion that the differences or variances in job flexible is relative to the working environment and human motivation. It is then recommended that managers should be aware that distinct attributes and factors may influence the level of job satisfaction among different occupations within business organizations. The combined effects of all the variables for the aggregate population and by occupation clearly demonstrate that achieving job satisfaction and organizational goal is possible through flexible workforce. Additional researches with participants in other environmental settings and conditions are essential. The manner of implementation of Flexibility in workforce significantly affects employeeÃ¢â¬â¢s views and beliefs as well as the manner in which they exercise or do their responsibilities. But definitely, Flexile workforce plays an important role in the success, efficiency and soundness of Human Resource management of an organization.
