The article explores the changing role that women have played in the evolution of personnel administration in the U.S. Two factors have contributed to the growth of personnel work in the country: the introduction of activities designed to improve the condition of workers and the introduction of measures to enhance the internal efficiency of an organization. This growth of personnel work signified the rise of women in personnel management. They were hired to promote employee betterment. They have had leading roles in the welfare and technical side of personnel work. They also had roles in social reform movements in the decades leading to World War I. Women in personnel work were called in various titles: house mother, matrons, social secretaries and employment manager.
