What is shorthand?

 

(a small write up /introduction to students joining in the beginners shorthand class)

 

It is an art which is used to write words in short forms using strokes and curves. There are many systems prevailing in the world. However Pitman system is considered the simplest and pioneer of all systems. In shorthand, the words are written based on the spoken sound of the particular word. So the listening to the sound of the words is important than the letters of a word to write the words fast.

 

At the beginning, concentrate only in deep and constant practice than trying to write fast.

Once you are familiar with the principles to some extent, on completion of initial twenty five lessons, you would come to know how the principles are helping to get accurate and legible outline for each word.

 

After completing fifty exercises, you can proceed further exercises, besides, copying, translating pitman transcription and learning new principles in further lessons. Once you complete hundred twenty five lessons, you are able to achieve writing eighty words   per minute in shorthand.

 

Why we need shorthand to write English words?

 

From the early stage of education English writing becomes part of the day to day routine of every student. After completion of  school studies, necessity of writing English develops to higher level  which makes the student heavily strained and weakens his/physic as well mind.

 

Shorthand learning and writing words through shorthand makes easy and simple besides it reduces the entire strain of writing. Further it helps the user to keep the words confidential to him /her. In addition she becomes the master of an art which is beautiful, useful and most confidential to the writer.

Any one can learn shorthand at any stage; particularly it is better if they start learning at their early adolescent age.

 

Come and join in the Pitman shorthand course and enjoy the benefits for ever.

 A brief description of pitman shorthand system. and the difference between language and pitman system.

 

1.a.As there are twenty six alphabets in English language, there are twenty six strokes in  shorthand which are written by straight and curved strokes.

b.The strokes are called consonants. Each consonant has its own value in writing  words. There are no vowels in pitman system as in the language. However, there are vowel sounds which are expressed  by way of light and heavy dashes and dots according the sound. These dots and dashes are called vowel signs which are important to read the word in that outline.

 

  1. The strokes are written lightly or heavily based on the sound of the words.

Each stroke has its own unique value. Light strokes are written lightly and heavy strokes are heavily to differentiate the heavy and light sounds.

 

  1. In pitman shorthand there are totally 12 vowel sounds expressed by small dots and dashes.

 

  1. There are six long vowel sounds and long short vowel sounds.

 

  1. For long vowel sounds, heavy dots and dashes are used.

 

(Remember the sentence “Pa may we all go too”) for six long vowels.

 

All the  above six long vowel sounds are defined as under:

 

 

1.Pa  -in this word, the sound is heard as in the words of  Park, mark, bark etc. This is a long vowel sound.

 

2.may – in this word, the sound is heard as in the words  Pay,  ache, cake, bake, rate, dame etc.,  that means ae  or   ay  is long vowel sound.

 

3.we – in this word, the sound is heard as in the words tea, sea, fee etc.,

 

T he above three vowels in the first half of the sentence are expressed in pitman shorthand by heavy dots placed either before or after the strokes depending upon the vowel sound heard in the word.

 

As there are three long vowel sounds, there are three places to a stroke to place the vowel sign nearby to the stroke. (the places of vowel sign to the strokes will be explained later after familiarizing with all the twenty six strokes.)

 

The long vowel sounds in the second half of the specimen sentence.

 

  1. All – in this word, the sound is as heard in the words Paul, auditor etc.,

 

  1. go – in this word, the sound is as heard in the words, road, pow, pour, tole, door, etc.,

 

6.too – in this word, the sound is as heard in the words, shoe, route, cool, mood, etc.,

 

These three long vowel sounds are expressed by a small heavy dash to the stroke on their relevant places according to the vowel sound of the word.

 

The long short vowel sounds.

 

Remember the sentence “ that pen is not much good”

 

Definition for the vowel sounds of the words in the above sentence.

 

1.that – in this word the vowel sound is as heard in the words mad, dam, pad, tap, etc.,

This is a light sounded vowel.

 

2.pen – in this word, the vowel sound is as heard in the words  bed,ten,net,belt,sent, beg etc.,  this is a light sounded vowel.

 

3.is – in this word, the vowel sound is as heard in the words pig, rip, pin, nil, sip etc.,

     It is a  light sounded vowel.

 

The above three light sounded vowels are expressed by small light dots placed next to the responding strokes.

 

4.not – in this word, the vowel sound is as heard in the words  pot, dot, rod, sock,rock etc.,

 

5.much – in this word, the vowel sound is as heard in the words like rum, bug, gun, lust, one, etc., it is a light sounded vowel.

 

6.good – in this word, the vowel sound is as heard in the words like food, look,foot,rook etc this is a light sounded vowel.

 

 

The above three short vowels are expressed by light dashes next to the corresponding strokes.

As there are three short vowel sounds, there are three places to a stroke to place the vowel sign nearby to the stroke. (the places of vowel sign to the strokes will be explained later after familiarizing with all the twenty six strokes.)

 

Note: the vowels are most important in writing the pitman shorthand. But the strokes are to be well practiced before learning the vowels.

1. Meaning of Personnel Management:

Personnel refer to the employees working in an organisation. They represent the manpower which is an important asset of a business unit. Employees are the real supporters of a business unit and they contribute substantially for the stability and prosperity of a business unit. Employees have various problems relating to wage payment, promotions, transfers, working conditions, welfare facilities, training and so on. All such problems are treated as personnel problems. These problems come within the scope of personnel management which is one important area of total business management. Naturally, a separate department called 'Personnel Department' is created in every organisation. It looks after the personnel problems. The manager in charge of this department is called personnel manager. He has to perform various functions which are responsible in nature and also delicate. He needs tact and imagination while dealing with personnel problems. He also needs active support of the top management for dealing with personnel problems effectively.

A personnel manager must be a specialist in organisation theory. In addition, he should be an expert in the personnel administration with knowledge of relevant Labour laws, procedures and so on. A personnel manager needs sound academic qualifications, communication skill, broad social outlook, sympathy and consideration for employees. Knowledge of subjects like philosophy, logic, sociology and ethics is also useful while discharging his duties and responsibilities. He needs a keen sense of social justice and also rights and interest of men (employees) at work. A personnel manager also needs other qualities which are normally required by a successful manager.

In short, personnel management deals with the people working in an organisation. It studies and solves their problems in order to create an efficient, loyal and co-operative labour force for the benefit of a business enterprise.

Personnel management deals with "personnel" of the organisation. It is concerned primarily with the manpower resource inputs.

2. Definitions of Personnel Management:

  1. According to Edwin Flippo, "Personnel management is the planning, organising, directing and controlling of the procurement, development, compensation, integration and maintenance of the people for the purpose of contributing to organizational, individual and social goals."

  2. According to George R. Terry, "Personnel management is concerned with the obtaining and maintaining of a satisfactory and a satisfied, workforce."

  3. According to British Institute of Personnel Management, in London, "Personnel management is that part of management which is concerned with the people at work and with their relationship within an enterprise."

3. Features of Personnel Management: 

  1. Personnel management relates to managing people at work. It covers all levels of personnel’s and their needs, expectations and so on. In this sense, it is a comprehensive function and is basically concerned with managing people at work.

  2. Personnel management is concerned with employees, both as individuals as well as a group. The aim of personnel management is to get better results (for the Organisation) through their involvement, motivation and co-operation. It is a people-oriented process of bringing people and organisations together so that the goals of each are met property.

  3. Personnel management is concerned with helping the employees to learn and develop their potentialities to the highest level for their benefits as well as for the benefits of their Organisation.

  4. Personnel management is inherent in all organisations as all organisations (including industrial and commercial) need manpower for the conduct of their activities. They are concerned with recruitment, selection, utilisation and development of manpower available. Personnel management is an integral aspect of total business management.

  5. Personnel management is a continuous activity/function in an Organisation as personnel problems continue to exist as long as employees are working in an Organisation. They need constant attention as they may disturb normal working of an Organisation, if neglected.

  6. Personnel management aims as securing willing co-operation of employees for achieving organizational objectives. This is natural as industrial and other activities can be conducted only with the support of human resources.

4. Objectives / Purposes of Personnel Management:

  1. To attain maximum individual development (self development) of the members of an Organisation and also to utilise available human resources fully and effectively.

  2. To mould effectively the human resources.

  3. To establish desirable working relationships between employer and employees and between groups of employees.

  4. To ensure satisfaction to the workers so that they are freely ready to work.

  5. To improve the service rendered by the enterprise to the society through better employee morale which leads to more efficient individual and group performance.

  6. To establish and maintain a productive and self respecting relationship among the members of an Organisation.

  7. To ensure the availability of a competent and willing workforce to the Organisation for its progress and prosperity.

  8. To help Organisation to achieve its goals by providing well trained, efficient and property motivated employees.

  9. To maintain high morale and good human relations within the Organisation for the benefit of employer and employees.

  10. To secure the integration of all the individuals and groups with the Organisation by reconciling individual/group goals with those of an Organisation.

5. Functions of Personnel / HR Management:

The functions of HRM are directly or indirectly related to the human resource available in the organisation. HR manager has to perform the basic functions of management in the area of HRM. These managerial functions include planning, organising, directing and controlling the manpower of his department. The operative functions of the HRM include procurement of manpower, development of manpower, and payment compensation to manpower and so on. In short, HRM involves the following functions and these functions are to be performed by the HRM department of the Organisation:

Functions of Personnel / HR Management are :

  1. Procurement of manpower : Procurement means acquiring or resourcing the human resources or the manpower required by an Organisation from time-to-time. Such procurement will be from the employment market. The basic principle in procurement is "right man for the right job". The procurement function includes manpower planning and forecasting, recruitment, selection, appointment, placement and induction of employees so as to have a team of efficient and capable employees for the benefits of the Organisation. Even promotions and transfers are covered by this broad personnel function. At present, scientific methods are used for recruitment and selection of most suitable manpower for the benefit of the Organisation.

  2. Training and Development of manpower : Development of manpower (human resource development) means planning and execution of the training programmes for all categories of employees in order to develop new skills and qualities required for working at the higher level. Manpower development is possible through training programmes and not simply by offering suitable wages to workers. Such manpower development (possible through systematic training programmes) is required for meeting the growing and changing needs of manpower along with the expansion and diversification of business activities. Executive development programmes are introduced for the benefit of higher level managers. Promotions and transfers are possible when manpower development programmes are introduced regularly. Similarly, future manpower requirement will be met properly through such manpower development programmes. This suggests the importance / significance of human resource development. It aims at educating and training employees for the improvement of overall performance of an Organisation. HRD programmes are for education, training and development of existing manpower in an Organisation. This is for facing new problems and challenges likely to develop in the near future.

  3. Compensation payment and reward to manpower employed : One function of HRM department is to pay compensation (in monetary form) to employees for the services rendered. For this, a fair system of remuneration payment (wages and salaries) needs to be introduced. Remuneration to employees should be suitable so that the labour force will be satisfied and disputes, etc., will be minimized. Fair wage payment acts as a motivating factor. Along with compensation payment, HRM also deals with reward system. It is a type of appreciation of exceptional good work and offer some monetary or non-monetary incentive to suitable employees.

  4. Integration of interests of manpower and the Organisation : Manpower is interested in wage payment while Organisation is interested in higher profits, consumer loyalty market reputation and so on. Personnel management has to reconcile the interests of the individual members of the Organisation with those of the Organisation. This will ensure cordial industrial relations. Reconciliation of individual, social and organizational goals and interest is one challenge before HRM.

  5. Maintenance of manpower : This HRM function relating to maintaining of satisfied manpower in the Organisation through the provision of welfare facilities. For this attention needs to be given to health and safety measures, maintenance of proper working conditions at the work place, provision of welfare facilities and other non-monetary benefits so as to create efficient and satisfied labour force with high morale. Even collective bargaining and workers participation come within this broad personnel function. Maintenance of stable manpower is difficult due to the availability of ample employment opportunities.

  6. Provision of welfare facilities : Employees are offered various welfare facilities. They include medical, educational, recreation, housing, transport and so on. These facilities are given for raising their efficiency and also for making their life happy. Welfare facilities create efficient and satisfied Labour force. To introduce new labour welfare facilities and to maintain the existing facilities is one of the functions of HRM.

  7. Miscellaneous functions : Misc. functions performed under personnel management are :

    1. Maintenance of service records of employees,

    2. Promotions and transfers of employees,

    3. Maintaining cordial industrial relations,

    4. Introduction of rational grievance procedure,

    5. Performance evaluation of employees,

    6. Career planning of employees,

    7. Maintenance of discipline, administering the policies with regard to disciplinary action and compliance of various labour laws,

    8. Restructuring of the Organisation,

    9. Formulating HRM strategy, etc.

 These HRM functions need to be performed regularly for the benefit of employees and also for continuity in the production activities of the Organisation.

W.R. Spriegel has divided the functions of personnel management / HRM department into the following six broad categories:

  1. Employment.

  2. Promotion, Transfer and Termination.

  3. Training.

  4. Wages and other incentives.

  5. Service activities (welfare activities).

  6. Collective bargaining and workers' participation.

As per Indian Institute of Personnel Management (IIMP now called NIPM), the Personnel / HRM functions are classified as noted below :

  1. Improvement of industrial relations,

  2. Promotion of joint consultation,

  3. Helping management to formulate a labour policy and improving communication between management and employees,

  4. Advising management on the fulfillment of statutory obligations relating to safety, health and welfare of the employees,

  5. Improving factory amenities and welfare provisions, and

  6. Advising the management on the training and future education of employees.

In the HRM department, various sections are created in order to give attention to various functions which are basically HRM functions. The functions (as noted above) are varied in character. These are functions of HRM and also the functions of personnel management. They are important and needs constant attention. Efficient, satisfied and co-operative labour force can be created by giving proper attention to various personnel functions.

Businesses use a variety of different types of computers such as desktops, laptops, servers, smartphones and tablets, depending on their needs. With computers, employees are able to work anytime, anywhere.

1. Communication:

Communication is key when gaining and maintaining clients and other important contacts. Computers give businesses access to email, instant messaging and custom customer contact systems. Computerized phone systems allow for automated support during off hours and a virtual operator can quickly direct callers to the correct department for faster support.

2. Marketing:

Computers allow businesses to create websites, stunning ads and complete marketing campaigns. Marketing videos can be edited and custom ads created in-house with the use of specialized software. Businesses can completely develop and manage websites with their own servers or connect remotely to a third-party business to upload their latest content such as articles, product images and blog posts.

3. Accounting:

Accounting without computers presents a high risk for human error. Accounting software allows businesses to simply input their financial data and instantly see gains and losses. All necessary tax reports are available the moment the data is entered. Using computers for invoicing, managing expenses and calculating payroll is vital for ensuring financial data is as accurate as possible.

4. Storage:

Instead of filing cabinets, businesses are able to store millions of files using computers and servers. Data can be stored centrally for easy access from multiple computers or stored locally for individual use. Computerized storage saves space and provides a far more efficient organization strategy. With encryption, passwords and replace keys, data remains secure.

5. Documents and Reports:

Most businesses have some sort of productivity software which typically includes a word processor and spreadsheet application. These two programs allow businesses to create reports, memos, tutorials and even colorful ads for company events. Spreadsheet applications give businesses the chance to organize, manage and calculate both numeric and alphabetic data. With charts and graphs, reporting becomes visual instead of text-based.

6. Education:

Businesses use computers to help educate employees on software, company policy, standard procedures and safety. Instead of hiring teachers, computers can be used to educate employees at their own pace or through an online webinar with live questions and answers. This form of education fits the busy schedules of businesses without sacrificing the quality of the education.

7. Research:

From learning more about the competition to discovering what customers really want, research isn't as difficult as it once was, thanks to computers. Search engines, forums, social networks and industry specific websites provide businesses with a wealth of information and research data.
