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.

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.

This week Ivan Israelstam addresses the danger of an approach used by some employers, who have not effectively managed performance and behaviour. To remove "troublesome" employees - who should have been disciplined or performance managed - the employer goes to great lengths to manipulate positions, and to create a redeployment pool, which effectively amounts to a redundancy pool. Ivan demonstrates how the Labour Appeal Court has the power to uncover alternative agenda, and the consequences of such poor management performance.

Moving from the structured educational environment of varsity into your first job is daunting for most people. 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.
