Human Resources are the people who work within your business making it profitable. They are, for want of a better term, the blood and bones of your business.
Sometimes referred to as the talent, workforce, people and cogs of the wheel, they are one of the most important areas of your business, and they are a cost.
Any cost that a business incurs has to have management as it affects profitability.
The role of human resources in any capacity is the management of people.
Depending on the business size, HR may encompass an entire department. Usually it will be a single person’s job, or a position that management holds as needed.
Human Resources Management (HRM)
Human Resources Management (HRM), is the management of people within an organisation.
As businesses grow, it’s important to have consistent procedures and structure in place. This includes the policies and training for employees on how to do their job.
HRM handles the on-going relationship between the employee and the business. This relationship is built on before, during and after the period of employment.
HRM handles on-boarding of new employees and the roles they will perform while at work. The management structure also combines leave entitlements and terminations of any staff.
Human Resources Management works close with other business requirements. These can include Time and Attendance and Payroll most often, but there are many other areas. Manufacturing, retail, warehouse and other industries all need HRM.
Human resources is for the support of the employees. It doesn’t matter the size of the business, HR is needed in every business with more than a single employee.
They offer employee support across many channels that affect workers within the business. These include but are not limited to; hiring, training, policy enforcement and termination.
Employees should also feel comfortable addressing any employment concerns to the HR representative.
The HR department might only be a casual role by the business owner as necessitated. If it’s a multi-person department within a larger business, it will be a more formal unit.
In either case, the support for employees is the end goal so that the business can continue on as normal.
