What is Human Resources?
A: Your employees should be the most important asset and customer that your company has. Human Resources (HR) Management is an umbrella term used to describe the management and development of employees in an organization. Also called people departments, personnel or talent management (although the last two terms are a bit antiquated), human resource management involves overseeing all things related to managing an organization’s human capital.
Being that HRM is a vast field, you see HR professionals assist in the following (but not limited to) ways:
- Recruiting and staffing
- Compensation and benefits
- Training and learning
- Labor and employee relations
- Organization development
Human resources focuses on a strategic and comprehensive approach to managing the company’s biggest asset, culture and environment.
Q: When do you need an HR Consultant?
A: Everyone in your organization has their specific area of expertise, including you. However, these areas of expertise may not align with federal, state and local employment law. They may also not align with creating a positive culture and morale. They may not understand what is needed and what it takes to find and hire qualified applicants and how to keep supporting those employees for success.
Being a small to mid-size employer, you also may not have the ability to hire someone full-time to assist you in this area. That’s where an HR Consultant can come in handy.
