Functions of Human Resource Management

Journal Edge

Human Resource Management is the strategic and coherent approach to the management of an organization’s most valued assets – the people working there who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the business. The HRM department members provide the knowledge, necessary tools, training, administrative services, coaching, legal and management advice, and talent management oversight that the rest of the organization needs for successful operation. The aims of strategic management are to provide the organization with a sense of direction and a feeling of purpose. Human resource management involves managing people in an organization.

You are working just nicely in your company, probably made up of mostly local colleagues that share your interests and once in a while, you’ll hang out with them in a pub across the road especially on Fridays when everyone wind down and bitch about work or talk about the upcoming games over beer.
Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 1.19.37 amSuddenly out of nowhere, your boss introduce the new kid in town, literally a new kid in town called Jane.
