As the name indicates, People Management is that part of the management function which is mainly concerned with the people who make up an organisation, and through whom that organisation achieves its goals. It pays attention to group and individual needs in practical ways, by seeing that fair and rational procedures are followed in the organisation, and that internal communications are effective. Good personnel management is the means by which those who work for the organisation are motivated at all times to work proactively and efficiently.
The Human Resources Manager must ensure that clear policies are developed, administered and communicated, in the following key HR competences concerning the management of human resources:
Human Resources Planning, Recruitment, Performance Management, Learning and Development, Compensation/Reward Management, Labour Relations Management, Safety, Health and Wellness generally. People in an organisation will be discontented if these important areas are not dealt with professionally.
