Human Resource Management

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.

Even where higher education adequately prepared students about what to expect, taking that first step into the world of work is often accompanied by fear of the unknown, and doubt about one’s ability to be successful.
