HR Organization Design Varies from one Sector to Another

Hi Supriya: There is no one design, nor is there a perfect design. HR organizations will vary from one sector to another, and even within the same sector!
In theory, HR organizations should have similar core functions, such as Labour or Employee Relations, Compensation, Classification (i.e. job Evaluation), Recruitment, Pension/Benefits, Organization/Employee Development (i.e. learning Management), HRIS (including Analytics), Employee Services, etc. However, some of these services could be outsourced and other services, such as Payroll, Cafeterias, and Security could be added.
