Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management, a term which has been of much use of late is a very recent development if you look at the historical development of this branch of study.      

It was after 1800 A.D. that the notion of personnel development came into being. It was originally initiated to take care of the women and their children who were working in factories.

You might be thinking about the situation at that point in time. There were welfare officers whose job was to see that the rights of workers, especially women were respected and taken care of.     

Well, as organizations started to grow in size, personnel managers became active and up to the 1950s personnel management covered the following services:      

  • Salary administration.
  • Training.
  • Advisory role in industrial relations.

What you know as Human Resources function in your organization today has actually gone through this metamorphosis. It was during the ’60s and 70’s that the scope of personnel management grew.

The gradual emergence of engineering and technology happened during this period. Slowly but steadily, the corporate culture of which you are a part of today began to emerge. This led to a transformation of what was known as the personnel department of that time.      

1980 to 2000: 

The most drastic change in this area happened during this period. You are aware that IT outsourcing started during this time. This was a major contributor to the massive change that organizations witnessed.

Human Resource Management started to be taken seriously with the emergence of new theories concerning team building, motivation, job enrichment, etc.      

2000 to Present:    

Technology, which has changed at lightning speed has brought about the changes seen post-2000. It was in this period that Human Resources began to been seen as a separate function altogether.

Leaders assigned with Human Resource responsibilities in organizations were accepted to be at the same level as the heads of other functions like finance, engineering, etc. The present role of Human Resource Management as you and I know of includes the following: 

  • Human resource policy.
  • Human resource planning.
  • Human resource information management systems.
  • Recruitment and training.
  • Performance and quality management.
  • Financial management of employee schemes.
