The offshore opportunities, high salary slips, challenging work, competitions from within and outside of the country are the prevailing factors, to be considered by the software companies for their existence in the business for a considerable period of time. Even a glance at the annual reports of the software companies speaks that they are the first in spending huge amount for their HRD/HRM departments. Indian software industry is comparatively young and not many research studies are on it. Through an empirical study the present book covers the different practices of HRD in software companies in a comprehensive way and also makes an attempt to provide conceptual clarification of HRD. This book surely helps the academicians, practiners and students of Human Resource Management/Development.
