Human Resource Management

Another part of an Organisation is the Human Resource Management department (HRM). HRM covers a lot of ground, and on this website I would like to go into detail about a great deal of this. Many people think that Human Resource Management should be an after-matter, thinking that a good product and business plan is first and most important. However, without having a good set-up within the business, a good team behind you, then you aren’t likely to go far.

Firstly we will start with the main areas of Human Resource Management, these are:

  • Dismissal
  • Recruiting and Selecting the right people
  • Learning
  • Development with current staff
  • Planning
  • Dealing with contracts
  • Dealing with fairness/equality
  • Motivating the workforce
  • Improving performance
  • Employee counselling
  • Managing the business and people within
  • Welfare
  • Redundancy
  • Appraisal
  • Ethics and Health and Safety
  • Being in the know
  • Rewards
  • Leadership

There is a lot involved in HRM and for that reason we can never possibly go into so much detail in each section, instead we have merged many of the above into smaller areas which can then be covered in great detail. These are;
