In the recent past, human resources department or personnel within an organization were limited to work that was mostly administrative in nature and industry would question their efficacy to improve overall business performance, to whether they are significant in playing a productive role in the operational side of an organization, apart from recruiting and on-boarding of employees. Nowadays, that is no longer the case. Companies and businesses maximize the potential of human resources departments in many other facets within the structural and operational framework, according to the changing needs and goals of such companies.
This has to with modern HR teams being agile – the functions of HR being adaptable and responsive in nature to changes in requirements of organization. Whether that has to do with external market environment, competitor-related adjustments, lack of employee technical aptitude or new areas of operation.
