All organizations, regardless of size, benefit from a human resources department or, at minimum, an employee skilled in people management. Human resources aids in the settling of internal disputes and makes certain all employees understand organizational policies and employer expectations. Additional responsibilities of the human resources department include hiring and retaining the best people through the administration of strong employee management systems and leadership and development trainings, offering quality benefits, and the promotion of a positive, supportive, and inspiring company culture.
Perhaps most important, human resources ensures the organization abides by local, and national labor laws, working to protect both employee and employer from potential employment and labor disputes or abuses.
Human resources is a multi-faceted department charged with diverse responsibilities, which support the growth and increased impact of the organization by taking care of employees and employers alike.
