Human Resources Management is the business operation in an organisation that links the human capital and their individual personal goals, with the other factors of the business, to achieve the stated objectives of the organisation. Succinctly put, it is the management of people to maximise their efficiency and effectiveness for the achievement of company objectives, as well as for the realisation of individual goals.
HRM is a continuously evolving field, and modern HR features outcomes in preference to rules. It elicits performance by motivation rather than by rulebooks. It seeks to build cordial relationship and respect for dignity of labour, and to groom and develop individuals to the best of their ability.
