WHAT IS HUMAN RESOURCE

Post by oyemslim » Sun May 14, 2017 9:58 pm

Human Resources is a rapidly evolving function in today’s business environment. HR departments, formerly known as Personnel, dealt largely with the administrative function of an organization, such as handling employee benefits questions or recruiting, interviewing, and hiring new staff in accordance with policies established by top management.

Today’s human resources workers manage these tasks, but, increasingly, they also consult with top executives regarding strategic planning . They have moved from behind-the-scenes staff work to leading the company in suggesting and changing policies.
In an effort to enhance morale and productivity, limit job turnover, and help organizations increase performance and improve business results, these workers also help their firms effectively use employee skills, provide training and development opportunities to improve those skills, and increase employees’ satisfaction with their jobs and working conditions. Although some jobs in the human resources field require only limited contact with people outside the human resources office, dealing with people is an important part of the job.
