Human Resources Management (HRM) is a field that helps managers to manage the workforce effectively and efficiently. In the 1960s, it was personnel management but an increasing magnitude of companies changed personnel management to HR management. HR comprises of nine to fifteen functions but six are commonly referred to as major parameters. The first is “need for employment” – that identifies the need if any person is required for the company. The second is related to recruitment – that is the process of hiring people. This process comprises ofjob vacancy advertisements, announcements, and invitations to visit companies for prospective entry. The third is about selection – that is actual hiring through interviews, tests and evaluations. The fourth is followed by training that can enhance further skills of the hired person. Training has a further two components as coaching and mentoring – these are practices in the company. The fifth is related to compensation that is set after good performance of employees. The sixth one is about the promotion of the employees.
