Human Resource Management is improving day by day and creating a culture of not treating staff or employee like machines as well as to remove the thought that, ask them to do whatever you want from them as You are paying them. HR says that human capital is the most important asset of the organization. The proof of it is, the introduction of employee relations, compensation and benefits, industrial relations, employee engagement activities and culture, rewarding employees, trainings to staff, paid annual and sick leaves, time in lieu of extra hours worked or overtimes and lot more.
HR as Human resource or High Risk seems strange but it’s very true and undeniable fact. HR acts as Human Resource for employees who are performing well as well as behaving well and abiding by the norms and policies whereas HR acts as HIGH RISK for employees lacking consistently in performance and or having regular behavioural problems and ignoring or disrespecting company norms and policies. In brief, Good/ proper HR is High risk for “Bad Employees” and Human Resource for “Good Employees”. A bad HR (where there is no HR or no proper HR like partly run by different departments) is high risk for good employees and human resource for bad employees.
HR’s functions can be divided into three main categories – acquiring talent, maintaining talent and retaining talent. This can be only be done by professional HR personnel, who will come up with such policies and procedures that will not only attract but also maintain and retain talent. companies lacking proper HR or coordination between HR & other departments do fail when it comes to recruit right people for the right job, thus wasting money, time and energies on the whole process and if it succeeds in it than maintaining and retaining is a major issue and people leave the organisation the day they can as per the LAWS and the day they find another better chance.
Therefore proper HR professionals should be hired and accordingly up to date HR Policies, procedures should be adopted that will make us the best in the market when it comes to having the best staff and taking care of them in the best possible way. In brief, we should not be a bridge for our staff towards their destination but should be a final destination for them. A good HR creates productivity and improves performance and progress of personnel to a level that they are ready to take an extra step to achieve the goal or satisfy the client by employee engagement activities, SMART Goal strategies, two-way communication in organisations, dividing the main activity into smaller parts and mentoring as well as appreciating staff on accomplishing each and very part of it, having personal and career development plans for staff, potential appraisals for promoting staff and or succession planning, providing healthy work environment to staff, taking care of staff’s health and welfare, proper compensation, counselling staff and giving ear to their concerns before it becomes grievance, job enrichments and empowerment.
I would like, to sum up, my article with a quote of a well-known business man “don’t take care of your Clients, take care of your employees. If you take care of your employees, they will accordingly take care of your Clients”
