The TQM approach brought changes in the attitudes and expectations of the managers about the roles of human resource managers .Further, the expectations of stakeholders about the HRM profession have also been changing. Traditionally objectives of the business organizations were restricted to productivity and profits. Consequently, stakeholders particularly the customers and employees were given low priority .Workers’ participation in management programs were limited to offering suggestions by employees. Training and development programs were limited to job related activities rather than extending to employee capacities.
But, the business objectives and total quality HRM approach are to maximize customer satisfaction, and market share though improved quality
