Why Human Resource Management

One of the key success factors of high performing organisations is putting their people first. Today, HR executives are challenged to develop efficient and effective, simple yet powerful solutions to the people side of business.

Human resource management is the practice of staff recruitment, training, management, retention, development, and industrial relations; and successful organisations are built on the strength of successful employees and the human resources function is at the heart of achieving this within an organisation.

"HR should help the business to get where we need to be – faster, and in a more efficient way, whilst also taking the time to analyse and influence the strategy itself"

Donal PrioHR Director, Diageo
