Managers must find ways to get the highest
level of contribution from their workers. And
they will not be able to do that unless they
are aware of the many ways that their under-
standing of diversity relates to how well, or
how poorly, people contribute.
R. Roosevelt Thomas Jr.,
Human Resource Management
The process of attracting, developing and
maintaining a talented and energetic workforce to
support organisational mission, objectives and
strategies.

....those decisions and actions which concern
the management of employees at all levels in the
business and which are related to the
implementation of strategies directed towards
creating and sustaining competitive advantage.
Miller (1987)
