Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management is well known to be the management of human resources designed to maximize all the employees’ performance within some organization they work for. HR manager is the one to be concerned with the management of people working for organizations focusing on both systems and policies. HR departments in different companies are all responsible for overseeing the employees’ recruitment, employees’ benefits design, performance appraisal, training and development as well as rewarding, such as managing benefit systems and pay. HR specialists from HR departments are also related to arranging the industrial relations and changes within the organizations they work for. They are responsible for the balancing of organizational practices with requirements arising from both governmental laws and collective bargaining.
Human Resources Management is a product of the human relations movement of the 20th century when researchers began documenting their ways of creating business value. The creation of such business value was done with help of managing the strategies of the workforce, focusing on the strategic initiatives, such as “talent management”, “merges and acquisitions”, “labour and industrial relations”, “succession planning”, as well as inclusion and diversity. Another focus is always on maximizing the employees’ productivity, managing the human capital as well as implementing both processes and policies.
HR professionals usually specialise on training, recruiting, benefits as well as employee-relations in a way of finding and hiring top talents. Development and training professionals have to ensure that all employees are trained and that they have continuous development, at least within their field of business activity. It can be done through performance evaluations, reward programs and training programs. So called “employee relations” deals with concerns of employees once the policies are broken, for example when discrimination or harassment take place. These human-resources professionals can work in all areas of business as well as be so called “labour-relations representatives” while working with “unionized” employees.
HR departments in general usually have the role of making sure that the teams they work with can function in a proper way and that people working in different departments can communicate across cultures as well as across borders. Nowadays, the topics in human resources include inclusion and diversity, and also using technology to advance the contracts between employees and employers. Now, most companies focus on retaining the knowledge and talent held by their workforce as well as lowering the so called “employee turnover”, which helps to entail a high cost and increase the risk of a newcomers who enable to replace the person worked in the same position before.
The key option for all HR specialists working in HR departments for both small and large organizations is to offer benefits for their workers to reduce the risk of losing the so called “corporate knowledge”. All the functions, which HR specialists have to perform, cannot be mentioned in one article, but the main, such as re-engineering organization processes, aligning business and HR strategy, responding and listening to employees and managing changes as well as transformations.
Each HR manager is in charge of overseeing organizational culture and leadership, ensuring the compliance with both labour and employment laws, which can be different, depending on the geography. HR managers are also often have to oversee safety, health as well as all security issues. Usually through their representatives, HR managers engage in lobbying efforts with governmental agencies to further its priorities.
There are four basic functions within the Human Resource Management: training and development, staffing, maintenance and motivation. Training and development is one of the steps in a continuous process of training and developing competent to make the employees to adapt to the existing circumstances. Staffing means both the recruitment and selection of all potential employees: it can be done through applications, interviewing, networking, and so on. “Maintenance” involves keeping each of the employees’ loyalty and commitment to the organization they work for. And Motivation is key for keeping the employees highly productive, including providing the benefits for employees, rewards and performance appraisals.
