Batch – 11th, 2nd Semester
Introduction: The role of Human Resources is changing as fast as technology and the global marketplace. Historically, the HR Department was viewed as administrative overhead. HR handled benefits administration, kept personnel files, and other records, managed the hiring process, and provided other administrative support to the business. Those times have changed. The positive result of these changes is that HR professionals have the opportunity to play a more strategic role in the business. The challenge for HR managers is to keep up to date with the latest HR innovations - technological, legal, and otherwise. There is a need to know about the current HR challenges, and how to most-effectively manage them in our workplace. This report discusses some best HR practices in our company in specific function.
Any practice that we devise to increase the competence, commitment and improve the culture can be termed as HR Practice, and this can be in the form of a norm, rule, system, or some practices.

3. Specific days like Traditional Day, etc., introduced.
Manpower planning enables HR department to project its short to long term needs on the basis of its departmental plans so that it can adjust its manpower requirements to meet changing priorities. The more changing the environment the department is in the more the department needs manpower planning to show:
