Human Resources (HR)

Human resources are the people that work for an organisation, and Human Resource Management is concerned with how these people are managed. However, the term Human Resource Management (HRM) has come to mean more than this because people are different from the other resources that work for an organisation. People have thoughts and feelings, aspirations and needs.The term HRM has thus come to refer to an approach, which takes into account both:

  • The needs of the organisation
  • The needs of its people.
