The monograph entitled the Challenges of Modern Human Resource Management was prepared by the staff of the Institute for Marketing and Development of Organizations at the Poznan University of Technology’s Faculty of Engineering Management. Their inspiration derived from long-standing research into human resource and competence management which is also currently supported by human resource management departments in small and midsize enterprises. Those relations have been built and developed for many years under the Poznan University of Technology’s initiative Akcelerator Wiedzy Technicznej® AWT® (Technical Knowledge Accelerator). The initiative has been the starting point for many projects aimed at e.g. improving the competencies of future job candidates.
It is worth pointing out that the monograph touches upon only part of the issues connected with human resource management in contemporary organizations. The authors hope that the book will be of interest to practitioners, academics, local government officials, heads of schools and entities providing vocational training, representatives of employer organizations, people interested in the labour market, senior year high school students and other readers who want to expand their knowledge in human resource management or continuously improve their competencies looking for sources of knowledge which can support the process.
