The nature of human resource management


Nature of human resource management (HRM) includes activities that first forecast the number and type of employees an organization will need, then find, and develop employees with necessary skills.

For example, human resource planning, recruiting, and selecting are programs concerned with bringing the appropriate individuals into the organization. Orientation and training programs develop the skills required by employees to carry out the work of the company. Performance appraisal evaluates work accomplishments, while compensation can reward those who perform at high levels.

Compliance with the law is also important, but such compliance is not the major reason for developing sound human resource programs. The primary reason is to ensure a sufficient number of employees who have the appropriate skills to meet the organizationís needs.
