Bringing out the best: Understanding employees and helping them manage their aspirations are some of the emerging practices in HR

The lowdown


Human resource (HR) management is a distinctive approach to managing people and their aspirations in an organisation. It is a process of procuring, allocating, and effectively utilising human capital to create a balance between a company’s long-term business perspective and developing a talent pool with the right set of skills. As organisations work towards improving employee engagement and retention, managing employees’ aspirations has become vital within HR management. Some of the emerging practices in HR include understanding employee aspirations, moulding them based on their unique backgrounds and helping them manage their goals to best accomplish their career objectives. An HR manager acts as a facilitator to achieve high performance in the given work environment.
