Human Resource Management is central to any organization, and it’s about far more than just hiring and firing employees. In forward-thinking companies today, Human Resource Management focuses on the recruitment, direction, and management of human assets, and making strategic plans for the future. Strong Human Resource Management nurtures human talent so employees can become even more valuable to the business.Today’s HR manager has several roles: an employee advocate, change manager, and strategic partner. They are also responsible for managerial, advisory, and a wide variety of operational functions. Doing the job well involves leadership, an ongoing investment in training of team members, and a solid understanding of the company, its brand, obligations, and goals.


One of the things that Remley notes is that the basics need to be covered, plus more complex issues. For example, “Companies need to invest in training their leadership team on how to interview. A bad interview loop can damage a company's reputation, and talent is now reviewing companies on how well they interview (Glassdoor),” she says. “Train people how to ask the right questions. And, train them on the questions they are not allowed to ask from a legal or ethical standpoint. I have witnessed some blatant breaking of civil rights in interviews — ‘How old are you? ‘Why did you decide not to have children? — that can put the organization at risk and potentially damage the company brand.”
