Human Resources

Any successful organisation would acknowledge that its human resources are among its most important assets. The management of human resources therefore is crucial, to ensure that this important asset grows in skills and knowledge, and functions productively in the organisation.

Human resources (HR) plays a key role in helping the company deal with a fast-changing business environment and a greater demand for quality employees in the 21st century. It is the division that is charged with finding, recruiting, screening, and training job applicants. It also oversees employee benefit programs and handles employee compensation, benefits, and terminations, ensuring that these are properly administered.

Human resource management (HRM) strategies focus on actively advancing and improving an organisation’s workforce with the long-term goal of improving the organisation itself.
