Abstract : There has been relatively little research aimed at identifying the factors which are associated with the use of sophisticated and bureaucratic personnel management methods as opposed to casual and informal methods. Existing theory and research suggest that organization, establishment size, technology, extent of unionization, and the existence of a predesignated personnel department may be among the causal factors. The relative impact of these factors on the sophistication of recruiting, selection, compensation and performance appraisal was assessed in a sample of 174 establishments. Keywords: Personnel policy, Personnel practices, Internal labor markets.
