Organizations are made up of people who interact to accomplish shared objectives. An organization’s most important resources and greatest asset are its people. The study of Human Resources (HR) helps us understand why people are centric to the success of business operations.
What Is The Study of Human Resources?
A strong Human Resources department is critical to an organization’s effectiveness and success. Getting to know the functions of the people within an organization benefits everyone, creating a cohesive, inclusive and fully functioning workplace.
For all participants, including managers, employees, and other stakeholders, an understanding of their people helps predict, control and plan an organization’s operations. HR is tasked with a range of responsibilities like attracting the best talent, getting the most out of employees, maintaining a fair and equal environment for everyone, and strategically leveraging talents and skills to work towards the organization’s common goal.
