Definition of Human Resources Management
Mike P.
I am looking for a good definition of HRM... Wikipedia says Human Resource Management is the strategic and coherent approach to the management of an organization's most valued assets - the people working there who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the business.
But is this definition of HRM widely accepted???

HRM Definition
HRM can be very well defined as the development of human capital which is the most valued asset for business development. Creating value and satisfaction for your human capital will in turn should lead to customer satisfaction.

Most valued assets is the most important part in the definition. If only it would be understood by the employers and other stakeholders.

Include IT in the Definition of HRM
Mohamed Osman Mohamedain, Analyst, Sudan, Member
Yes, it is quite general and specific at the same time. It illustrates the strategy of the firm, individualism(esteem) and collectivism (social) and is connected to the goals of the organization.
After the tremendous IT (MIS) bang in management, I suggest it is of great significance to include technology in the definition.

HRM Definition
Some people believe that human resource management is in general terms the management of the the conditions of work of employees in the organisation.
HRM deals with ensuring that the employees display the highest level of efficiency and effectiveness in the performance of the organizational functions through providing good work conditions to the employees.
Human resource management does not only involve the management of the daily workers, but also the part time employees.

HRM to me is looking for the right person for the right job at the right time and seeing to it that they are happy to give their best to the organization.

Human Resource Development Aim
D P BABU, Strategy Consultant, India, Member
The HRD philosophy aims to create and maintain an environment in an organization where human potential is leveraged as the primary resource to capture internal and external opportunities in order to gain competitive edge in a changing business environment.

HRM is Matching Organisation and Individuals

HRM is the collection of all activities which assess, evaluate, organize and ensure human needs of organizations and match that with finding, getting, settling, promoting the right people for today and ensure synchronous future growth of both.

Best Definition of HRM

1. HRM is related with management processes of any organization to achieve
- Social objectives (legal compliance, benefits, union management relation)
- Organizational objectives (human resource planning, employees relation
selection, t&d, appraisal, placement, assessment)
- Functional objectives (appraisal, placement, assessment)
- Personal objectives (t&d, placement, compensation, assessment).
2. HRM deals with people at work in the sense of organising, motivating, guiding and leading of people for the accomplishment of goals of the organization. Its main objective is to maintain better human relations in the organization by development, application and evaluation of policies, procedures and programmes relating to the individuals in the organization in order to optimise their contribution to achieve organizational objectives.
So we can say that HRM is heterogeneous, multidisciplinary approach by nature.

HRM Definition

HRM is broadly defined as employing people, developing their resources, utilizing, maintaining, compensating their services which are used for the organizational goals..... And motivating them to achieve further.

HRM should be proactive and not reactive.

Human Resources is like an Assembly Line
achyut karve, Student (Other), India, Member
HR is something like a 20th century assembly line where first the exact number of components have to be made available and then they need to be fitted in sequence to make the final product. The assembly line is the best analogy of HR. The two classical ways of assembling a product is the British system and the German system.
In the British system value added goods are bought and then fitted to make a product.
On the other hand, in the German system everything from the nut and bolt is produced under one roof and finally assembled to make a product.
Historically the German product has won :-).

What is Human Resource Management?
bala, Manager, India, Member
Human - Characteristic of People;
Resource - Supply of staff;
Management - the process of dealing with people;
So HRM is the process of dealing with different kind of people in the work place; it's main or very important function is supplying the right candidates for the right job.

@Achyut karve: This is a perfect analogy, Achyut! And I do support the "German" :) approach in HRM.
