This Aint Your Daddy’s HR Do I have your attention? Good, because we are in the mist of an HR revolution. It’s either join up, or be left in the dust. What do I mean by this? Well, gone are the days of Human Resources representing the company’s interests solely. The new age HR Manager is an inclusive individual, serving the collective needs of both employer and employee. In the new “collaborative” workplace, an HR Manager wears many more hats than in years past. It can be debated as to whether this is a result of a disgruntled workforce staging a collective mutiny, or the evolution of HR professionals. Either way, the time has come.

    They are actually the same thing. It all depends on what the firms called their department – Human Resources or Personnel. Human resources is the most used term and they deal with company personnel.

    Hardly any difference but if there is any, it lies in the stage – HRM embraces both sourcing and managing the people; PM perhaps deals mainly with managing the personnel already recruited!

    Human Resource Management is the contemporary name for what used to be called Personnel Management. Until maybe twenty years ago, every company had a Personnel Office. Since that office now has many more responsibilities than it used to, it is now referred to as the Human Resources office. So it is basically the same thing.

    Human Resource Development (HRD) is a practice that combines training, organizational development, and career development efforts to encourage improvement of individual, group, and organizational performance.

    Its purpose is to enhance employee performance/productivity, which leads to employee and customer satisfaction and an increase in the profitability of the organization.
