Explores the burgeoning literature on HRM with the aim of assessing its distinctiveness in terms of the arguments expounded by Guest in 1989 in his article "Personnel Management and HRM: Can You Tell the Difference?". Summarizes Guest's article, drawing out his three main approaches; reviews each of the three themes in terms of later contributions to the subject; evaluates the distinctiveness of HRM in relation to the three approaches laid down by Guest; and, finally, raises some issues of discussion and conclusion on the distinctiveness of HRM, its efficiency claims and its effects on the practice of personnel management.
