Human Relations Movement


Definition: the Human Relations Movement is a term that refers to the researchers of organizational development who study the behavior of people in groups, in particular workplace groups.
The HR movement originated in the famous studies by Mayo in the 1930s (Hawthorne Effect), which examined the effects of social relations, motivation and employee satisfaction on productivity in factories.
It can be seen as the counterpoint of Taylor's Scientific Management.
