Essentially, Human Resource Management is about people and their management. People are the most important resource of any organisation. Anyone who has had a job has encountered or interacted with Human Resource or Personnel Managers at one point or another.
The role of Human Resource staff in any organisation or business is one of the most important roles, as it is their duty to connect management and employees, while at the same time looking after the needs of the employees, benefits, leave, etc.
From communicating employee needs and concerns to management, to recruitment and exit interviews, each step made by an employee requires the aid of Human Resource staff.
Apart from guiding and managing the overall provision of personnel, Human Resource staff managers are responsible for developing and documenting policies and programmes affecting employees within an organisation.
A personnel-focused, high performance culture that places emphasis on empowerment, quality, efficiency, and standards are the main elements of what Human Resource Management is all about.
The daily responsibilities of Human Resource managers can include employee needs assessment, training and development; performance management and improvement of systems; organisation development; organisational departmental planning; compensation and benefits administration, employee services and counselling, safety, welfare, wellness and health.
Essentially, the key function of a Human Resource staff manager is to ensure the development of practices and procedures that support the achievement of an organisation’s business goals, which benefits both employees and management.
An effective Human Resource Manager brings stability in Human Resource management practices and greatly improves human relations in the company, while improving employee knowledge, skills, motivation, and contribution opportunities.
The responsibilities of Human Resource Managers require them to report to the company President or CEO – who most closely shape their employees’ corporate culture.
To be considered for a position in the Human Resource or personnel department of an organisation, candidates are required to have a minimum of a certificate, diploma or degree in the relevant field and possess personal attributes such as a desire to work with and develop people.
Managerial positions or a specialised career in Human Resource Management require candidates to further their studies coupled with increasing the number of years of experience, working in the field.
Short courses, workshops and classes covering topics such as recruitment, training, management and compensation also assist to broaden an existing HR professional’s skills.
A career in HR Management can, on average, pay anything between R118 734 per annum for entry-level candidates, and above R731 519 for HR Executives.
Candidates with qualifications in HR can work for any organisation, or they can choose to be self-employed and serve as consultants for public and private employees.
The increasing use of technology in the workplace also adds more value on the importance of HR Practitioners within organisations, who ultimately seek qualified, trained, efficient employees.
