Human Resource Management involves a complex but valuable balancing exercise, which requires HR managers to proactively plan ways to create an environment of competitive advantage for the organisation, whilst still meeting individual employee needs.

The importance of HRM

Few things are more-costly to a business than employees who are unable to meet the requirements of their job, or who fail to adapt and grow with changing business standards and increasing global competition.

This costliness is often a result of HR professionals who fail to align HR objectives with their organisational business goals, and, therefore, are unable to maximise the return on their investment in employees.

Some of the risks of ineffective HRM include:

  • Loss of efficiency, skills and knowledge due to poor recruitment
  • Poor communication and customer service
  • Higher staff turnover and absenteeism
  • Higher incidence of disputes, accident rates, legislative breaches and illegal termination
  • Poor community standing and loss of business
