Yet, previous research has neglected to study how line managers rate the importance of particular HR duties and how the importance assigned to HR duties varies across managers. Based on a survey of 1,500 Danish managers, we find that motivating others is considered the most important HR duty whereas team building , handling conflicts and coaching are considered the least important HR duties. Female top managers in the public sector exhibit the greatest interest in HR whereas men at lower managerial levels in the private sector give lowest priority to HR work. We conclude with possible explanations for the observed differences in a Danish context and beyond and provide suggestions for facilitating managerial involvement in HRM. In doing so we are well aware that the Scandinavian model of HRM in general and the Danish implementation in particular may represent a unique frame for the results.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>The perceived importance of HR duties to Danish line managers</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Madsen, Henning</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-23T10:01:25Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-23T10:01:25Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Brandl, Julia</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
