Human resource management in my opinion is one if not the most important facets of any company. Without HRM a company will almost definitively have an unhappy workforce. Youssef (2015) describes HRM by stating, “Human resource management (HRM) is the managing of human skills and talents to make sure they are used effectively and in alignment with an organization’s goals. Neither the size nor type of a company affects this definition.” Human resource management is an extremely important department of any company or business and throughout the course of this class I have learned a significant amount about the workings within.

This improvement can be realized by viewing training needs in association with strategic organizational plans and prioritizing them accordingly (Clarke, 2003; Reed & Vakola, 2006).” Therefore, without good training or pans to train the progression of the company and its employees will be severely impeded. However, getting back into compensation and benefits, these effect the employee’s desires to work for the company. This is equally as important to the company however, it is a completely different aspect of the HR department’s
