Human relations theory focuses on the value, needs and contribution of the employee; classical theory's emphasis is the good of the organisation and the work.

As mentioned above that we have to Compare Classical School of Thought with Human Relation School of Thought and evaluate which one is better for a Public Sector Organization, and why? Provide at least four logical reasons to support your choice.

What Is a Public Sector Organization?

A public sector organization is one that is owned and controlled by the government. Being that the government is responsible to the entire public, all organizations controlled by it are called so. Examples of public sector organizations in the UK are, Department of central government, police and fire, local councils, new local government network, parliament, etc.

So, first we should know about Classical School of Thought as well as  Human Relation School of Thought.

Classical School of Thought:

Main Feature of Classical School

The main focus of the classical school was as follows:-
1. The task of administration is not political but technical, i.e. only carry out the will of the political authority.
2. Its emphasizes is on material and methods instead of human element in the organization
3. It treated people as ‘cogs in the machines’ people in the organization were like other machines and tools.
4. Focus was to increase productivity.

Now Human Relations Approach

What Conrad & Poole (1998) refer to as a "relational strategy of organizing" is more commonly called the "human relations approach" or "human relations school" of management by organizational theorists. This human relations approach can be seen as being almost entirely antithetical to the principles of classical management theory. Where classical management focused on the rationalizationof work routines, human relations approaches stressed the accommodation of work routines and individual emotional and relational needs as a means of increasing productivity. To a great extent, the human relations approach can be seen as a response to classical management -- an attempt to move away from the inflexibility of classical management approaches.

The human relation approach can also be seen as a response to a highly charged and polarized social climate in which labor and management were viewed as fundamentally opposed to one another, and communism was seen as a very real and immediate danger to the social order -- the notion of class strugglepropounded by Marxist theorists was taken very seriously. By focusing on the extent to which workers and managers shared economic interests in the success of the organization, the human relations approach can be seen as an attempt to move beyond the class struggle idea. Of course, the human relations approach (which really emerged in the late 1930s) was made possible by the fairly coercive suppression of the most radical organized labor movements. The sidebar describes one such movement, and is provided in order to indicate the social climate extant in the period immediately preceding the emergence of the human relations approach.

After reading the whole topic very carefully, u'll be able to answer ur choice with logical reasoning ..

For better understanding about the Topic: Classical Vs. Human Relation School, go through lecture No. 03 in handouts page No. 9 to onwards lecture No.05 page No.

Classical Approach is a better approach to be followed....kyunk public sector sector org.s men informal/interpersonal relationships, group dynamics aur employees k problems sy zyada; materials aur machines, technical task of administration aur increased organizational efficiency py emphasize kiya jata he....

better understanding k liay kisi bhe public sector org. k bary men search kren...it will be useful... 

.
