Human resources (HR) refers to the people who work in an organization and their relationship with that organization. Different terms have been used to describe such people including employees, associates, and personnel; but the term “human resources” has gained widespread acceptance over the last decade because it clearly expresses the belief that human beings are a valuable and sometimes irreplaceable resource to the success of any organization. Effective human resource management (HRM) is an important part of any manager’s job.
Managers face several major HR challenges in three main categories: the environment, the organization, and the individual. Environment challenges include rapid change, rise of the Internet, workforce diversity, globalization, and natural disasters. Organization challenges include decentralization, downsizing, self-managed work teams, technology, and outsourcing. Individual challenges include ethical dilemmas, social responsibility, productivity, empowerment, and job insecurity.
The rapid rise of the Internet is the single most important trend affecting organizations, human resource managers, and their human resource practices. The Internet, in particular, and technology, in general, is having a profound impact on how organizations manage their human resources. Nearly every organization today uses the Internet as part of their regular business practices.
