Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management is the management of an organization's workforce, or human resources. It is responsible for the attraction, selection, training, assessment, and rewarding of employees, while also overseeing organizational leadership and culture, and ensuring compliance with employment and labor laws. In circumstances where employees desire and are legally authorized to hold a collective bargaining agreement, Human Resources may serve as the company's primary liaison with the employees' representatives, or labor union.

Due to globalization, company consolidation, technological advancement, and further research, Human Resources now focuses on strategic initiatives like mergers and acquisitions, talent management, succession planning, industrial and labor relations, and diversity and inclusion.
