The concepts of Human Resource Management (HRM) and Personnel Management (PM) are considered to be synonymous and many human resource academics agree that the differences between these two management models are rather philosophical than practical. The term PM emerged in the middle of the 20th century though the development of this function of management takes source from so called “welfare offices” that appeared in the end of the 19th century. At that, the concept of HRM came out in the 1980s and was a product of the evolution of personnel management function in modern management.
