The first step in pursuing a career in human resource management begins with knowing its important functions. Enrolling for a course in this niche would introduce you to various roles and responsibilities and the skills required to perform these tasks. Here’s a quick look at some of the key functions.

HR planning 

The human resource department is responsible for planning different workforce related activities such as learning and development initiatives, recruitment campaigns, or even performance management strategies. First, they try to determine current organizational needs and then find ways to bridge that gap to meet workforce requirements of the future.

Selection and recruitment 

A key aspect of human resource management deals with attracting the right kind of people and selecting them for internal teams. They design, develop, and implement sourcing strategies in order to attract the highest-potential and best-qualified candidates for different jobs. Today, these teams use state-of-the-art technical recruitment tools and online services to help them find ideal candidates for different vacancies. They also need to carry out employee background checks to ensure that only credible candidates are hired.

Performance Management

How do you keep workers and employees engaged and productive? This involves open feedback, clear goal setting, and good leadership. The HR team coordinates with subordinates, managers, peers, and even customers in order to evaluate and analyse employee performance.

Training and development 

Organizations that invest in timely training programs ensure that their employees are ready to face dynamic market situations and changing client requirements. The human resource management team works within a set budget to design and implement development and learning programs amongst the employees. This helps to bridge the gap between existing skills and future competencies.

Compensation and benefits 

This is another important function of human resource management. It deals with rewarding employees for their effort, time, and work. Successful companies recognize that rewards should not only include monetary benefits but should also include psychological and relational incentives. Rewards could also include growth opportunities, autonomy, job security, bonuses, performance-based pay, holidays, etc. The objective of a compensation and benefits program should be to retain, motivate, develop, and attract the best talent.

Communication and welfare 

The human resource management team acts as a link between employees and the top management. They help to communicate ideas, feedback, policy updates and concerns so the entire organisation is kept abreast of changes. They are also responsible for creating a healthy, safe, and productive work environment and atmosphere. The right work culture can encourage higher productivity and less negativity in the long run.
