Human Resources (HR)

Resources for Improving HR Department Operations

  • What is Human Resources (HR)?

    The HR organization is responsible for attracting, recruiting and hiring of all new employees. They administer and document all benefits, compensation and personal employee information. In recent years, Human Resources Groups have developed to include such functions as talent management, succession planning, diversity management and labor relations.
  • The History of Human Resources

    Before 1000 B.C. the Chinese used techniques to screen employees. More recently, Adam Smith noted the importance of worker education, and Frederick Taylor explained the need for professional management of workers. The move from an agrarian to an industrial economy created the need to attract and train large numbers of workers in manufacturing. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, management of immigrant workers became a major role of HR. Additionally, the rise of labor unions added complexity to the tasks of HR management. The term “Human Resources” was first used in the early 1960s. The function had previously been referred to variously as personnel relations, industrial relations and employee relations.
  • Modern Trends in Human Resources

    HR departments increasingly manage several trends: new legal requirements, e.g., privacy regarding medical information, diversity management, affirmative action; demographic shifts, such as retirement of the baby boom cohort and the emergence of the social media-savvy generation; and the shift from labor to knowledge work, which requires more training and process documentation.
