In the last five weeks, I have learned many aspects of a Human Resource management. In our text, it explains that the human resource manager is the managing of human skills and Talents to make sure they are used properly and in alignment with a company’s goals (Youssef, 2012). Even if the4re is not a human resource department, the human resources activities are still throughout a company. They are responsible for handling legal issues, like hiring and firing, compensations, training, demoting and promoting people. (Youssef, 2012).
My best friend works in the News Herald, and they have a human resource management, Plus a line management, this helps bring human assets into the company, this way the Employees can perform the duties and the responsibilities that will keep the company running more smoothly, and st6ill be competitive against other companies. However, in their employment, they contribute to defining, and shaping ethic culture in the company, and the behaviors of all the executives’ managers, and the employees. (Youssef, 2012). The company provides support and any advice that contains to the vague and obscure ethical areas, where it may be a problem for employees and other department’s manager, to be able to decide if an issue can be safety understood right or wrong.
In the human resource department, planning plays a very important role. The process of the human resource planning, the upper management decides a company’s overall goals and objectives and basically how the company will make this happen over a certain time. This is a ongoing process in which the companies are consist growing and answering to the internal and external forces. (e-how, 2012). The human resources strategic planning consists of four steps, the mission determination, the strategy setting, the environmental assessment, and the objective setting. (Youssef, 2012). In order to track the measure of success in the time lines, all these objectives should be recorded in writing. The objectives should also, provide a challenge, and not be untrainable at the start.
In the human resource planning process, facilitates the achievements of the organization’s and in addition, by understanding one’s situation in the market. It is a very important process to evaluate the human resources that are planning on staying with a company for a certain period and to make sure that they will do what it takes to ensure that the goals and purposes are accomplished with the company. (Youssef, 2012). In addition, to help the human resource planning, estimating and forecasting the workforce needs during the time will help the company reaches the achievement of its goals. An example would be working in a clinic office, and within that clinic it goes through many transitions of hiring and training, which this process is effected quite often.
In the functions of an organization the human resource manager plans, directs, and coordinates the administrative, and the interviewing, and the hiring of new staff members, in addition, it is over the recruiting and works with the main executives on the strategic planning, and is also the link between the company’s management and the employees. I will agree with the article in e-how stating, “every manger is a human resource manager”, due to the fact if there was no human resource manager; a company would not be able to operate properly. (E- How, 2012). There are several duties of the human resource manager, these duties are conducting job analyses, the recruitment planning the personal needs, the managing of the wages, and salaries, providing benefits, appraising performances, they also have to do the...
