Whether the dismissal of an employee who attended work whilst awaiting a Covid-19 test result, who continued to report to work after the Covid-19 test result came back positive and who failed to follow health and safety protocols in the workplace, was fair.

Why is Human Resources (HR) so important in the workplace? HR helps to shape organisational culture by developing policies and practices, dealing with personnel management, supporting organisations in the recruitment process and providing training and development. HR is responsible for the policy of “performance” management. It monitors, evaluates and supports an organisation's workforce.

Human resources is the most important department in any company. It is the central hub for all of the employees and everything that they do. The HR department is responsible for recruiting and hiring, on-boarding, compensation and benefits, employee performance management, training and company culture.

There are four key HR functions that are necessary for your company to be successful. They are: Recruitment, Employee Development, Occupational Health and Safety, and Employee Management. Every one of these functions is crucial to the success of your business.

A career in human resources can be a rewarding and enriching experience. It offers a way to improve the lives of others, while at the same time making a difference in the world.
