Human Resource Management Discussion
Human Resource Management (HRM) takes a strategic approach to developing and maintaining a qualified workforce to gain a competitive advantage. The role of a Human Resource Manager in the strategic process is to focus on the specific areas that will contribute to the overall effectiveness of the organization. For this week’s discussion, complete the following:
If you were an HR Manager, on which would you focus? Give a rationale for your choice:
Knowledge workers: Seeking individuals who have the skill set to perform the specific functions of the job.
Financial Crisis: Ensuring the organization can meet financial obligations when the external environment (economy, laws) negatively affects the organization and prevents it from meeting forecasts for annual sales.
Ethically and socially responsible to the needs of society.
Be sure to respond to your classmate’s (Jeanna) posts below:
If I were a member of HR Manager I would focus on hiring knowledgeable workers as the quality of the worker provides insight into the success of the company. If I work in an environment that requires sales and marketing to generate results and financial benefits for the company, having employees who are like-minded and Sales driven with proper ethics will generate the results needed. This will then generate better pay for the Employees and create a good work-life balance. I believe in working hard and playing harder.
