In recent years, the business community has come to recognize that success relies on careful Human Resource Management. We see HRM as a strategic and comprehensive approach to systematically managing people and the workplace culture and environment. HRM professionals, middle-level and line managers, first line supervisors, are all dealing with issues related to the people in an organization.

Almost every decision that is taken in businesses and organizations has an impact on their employees. The challenge for every manager is to keep staff motivated, involved and productive in spite of all the changes taking place.

Effective HRM enables employees and managers to contribute effectively and productively to the overall business direction and the accomplishment of the organization's goals and objectives through employee motivation, effective hiring, performance management, organization development, safety, wellness, benefits, communication, careers development and training.

The HRM function is expected to add value to the strategic utilization of employees and to ensure that employee programs recommended and implemented impact the business in positive measurable ways. Gone are the days when HRM was considered as an administrative function.  The modern HRM involves strategic direction, HRM analytics, strategic talent management, and HRM metrics and measurements to demonstrate value of Human Capital.
