Hard human resources management;

- employees are treated as resource and like they are only used for a limited period of time. The Hr will only care about how much is necessary to pay them and it is most likely that it will be very low or minimum wage. 

-the will only employ staff and move or fire them afterwards 

- short term changes in number of employees.

-very less communication between the top of the structure and bottom

-there's no empowerment or delegation as staff will not be able ot take higher roles.
