Human resource managers are involved in activities designed to ensure that an organization is effectively utilizing all employees so that it may achieve its strategic objectives. Human resource managers develop systems for recruiting, hiring and promoting employees; ensuring a competitive compensation and benefits program; training and developing employees; providing accurate and useful employee performance appraisals; and ensuring that an organization abides by legal regulations concerning employment practices.
