Human Resource management is a strategic support function to every organisation. This begins at recruitment and continues through employee integration, development, engagement and performance, and without leaving out the critical place of records management and administrative excellence.
In today’s business where administrative flexibility is required to facilitate unimpeded process flow, the role of HR then is to empower the line manager to become partners in the HR value chain. HR management thus originates from the HR professionals and flows through the line managers in the corporate chain for overall business support.
