There is no distinction, it's just stupid management-speak
Distinguish Between 'Personnel Management' And 'Human Resource Management' And Discuss The Historical Development And Changing Context In Which They Operate?
Oh Personnel Management might not include management development, its an older term of course. Human Resource Management, has a much wider remit, and Personnel Management makes one think of personnel records and paper pushing which takes one back a few years. So what's in a title, maybe expectation. And it depends on the size of the business.
