General Information about HR for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
HR, or human resources, refers to the set of people making up the workforce of a company, organization, business sector, or industry. The term can be used interchangeably with manpower, personnel, associates, staff, or labor. Within each organization, there is a human resources department, acting as the link between an organization’s management and its employees. HR officials perform various tasks, including interviewing, recruiting, managing employee benefits, evaluating the performance of employees, or organizing employee relations activities and programs such as employee counseling.
Human resource departments play a crucial role in building and developing a company or organization during its early stages, and contributes significantly in making it successful later on, by constantly regulating and motivating its employees. Human resources contribute to better employment relations in the workforce, and helps negotiating ethical issues in the relations among the individuals that make up a company. Since people are the greatest resource for any business, treating them fairly and providing them with opportunities to grow can only help an organization achieve its business goals. Furthermore, HR plays a crucial role in developing a positive business culture and, thus, in improving employee engagement and productivity. Lastly, businesses require effective communication to operate well and, most of the times, the ways in which communication is structured within a company are defined by the HR department. They are the key to building a better, more productive work environment.
