ABSTRACT
The article examines two models for reorganizing personnel departments. The model designed by Frederick Herzberg has two divisions--one for maintenance factors and the other for workers' motivator needs. The hygiene or maintenance program has categories such as employment, wage administration, training, benefits, and labor relations. The motivator program activities are communications, job redesign, and planning. The author's model of "personnel segmentation" groups personnel activities in relation to classes of workers. The organizational structure is a personnel director with managers for six categories, including women workers. Four symptoms of malaise in personnel-staff management are mentioned, as well as professionalism of personnel specialists.
