The World of Work in HRM

For the success of any organization, attracting qualified job candidates and matching them to the work for which they are best suited is essential. However, many companies are too large to allow close contact between the management and the people. Human Resource Management (human resources & training managers and specialists) provides this link.

In the past, HR professionals have been associated with performing the administrative function of an organization, such as handling employee benefits questions or recruiting, interviewing, and hiring new personnel in accordance with policies and requirements of an organization.

Today’s HR professionals juggle such above tasks and, as well as, consult top executives regarding strategic planning. They have moved from behind-the-scenes staff work to leading a company in towards changing business dimensions.

In an effort to improve morale & productivity and limit job turnover (number of employees who leave an organization during a specified time), HR specialists also help firms effectively use employee skills, provide training to build on those skills, and lift employee satisfaction with working conditions.

Although some jobs in the HR field require only limited contact with people outside the office, dealing with people is an essential part of the job.
