If you start comparing both the terms that will end up in many pages therefore I am just giving you a summarized idea. Relate HR Management to Business of the company and Personnel Management to HR of a company it'll be easier for you to find the differences.
Warm regards,

Well I think Personnel Management is existing only in books now. The term HR Management has incorporated Personnel Management in it. Companies look after their employees training and development program with the assistance of HR. It is the HR that helps to conduct motivational programs along with other departments of the company.

Dear Member

The difference is of perspective/philosophy and the belief.

The entire personnel management concept historically has transformed from "Labour welfare"-----"Personnel Management" to the present "Human Resources Management".

With industrialization...nature and needs of business and hence profile of "manpower" changed- from manual labour to technically skilled to professionals and now knowledge workers and knowledge managers.

Business challenges shifted from "ensuring presence/reducing absenteeism (i.e. LW interventions) to proper maintenance of manpower by timely providing salary, training and promotion" (*Personnel Management) to "right alignment of f individual's needs (ranging from Basic to apex level i.e. self esteem, professional enrichment, recognition and meaning of life) with organizational goals". (Human Resource Management).

from considering about Human as “commodity” (The one M among the Five) to Resource –the supreme resource.

After Second World War the progress and development of Japan as Phoenix has realized the world that it is not the Natural resources or Capital but HUMAN is the supreme resource for business –for the country.

A lot can be written on this topic...but considering shift in perspectives/philosophy/objectives will give right understanding about both the regime.

To put succinctly and to find the cause for the perceptible difference between the two, the transformation of industrial ecomomies of 19th and early 20th centuries into knowledge economies of late 20th and 21st centuries, brought about marked evolution in the content and role of the personnel function in that Personnel managment used to serve the business in the traditional role of servant in the era of indutrial economies but HR mangement partners the business in the stratgic role in modern era of knowledge economies.

Thanks for providing this document which highlights the difference between the two terms. I agree personnel management is more inclined towards administrative and legal part of the employee life cycle and HRM is more of deploying strategies to engage employees working on the floor.
