Human Resource Management Notes

In order to grow and survive in the long run an organization must employ the right people, with the right skills at the right place and time. Employees are the most valuable assets of an organization, therefore there must be a constant and conscious effort to realize organizational goals by satisfying the needs and aspirations of employees.

Human resource management is the art of procuring, developing and maintaining competent workforce to achieve organizational goals in an effective and efficient manner.

According to Invancevich and Glueck,

“HRM is concerned with the most effective use of people to achieve organizational and individual goals”

HRM takes account of all activities carried out by the employee during his/her entire working life. It starts from the Procurement of the employee until his/her separation from the organization.
