When we experience things it can affect and mold us into what decisions we make and the ways we see the world. It can mean that your surroundings and upbringings also what we expose ourselves to. The human resource department has an important role to prevent these stereotypes in the workplace and make sure that the workplace has the right culture to help ensure people are engaged with their work. By creating an environment, the people enjoy to be in this can lower the turnover rate at the company. This relates specifically with the possibility of controllable turnover that the employer did not do enough to prevent the employee leaving. Employee turnovers can be costlier than keeping employees happy. While the employer works to keep the employees happy and committed to their work there is a contract between the two. The employer expects the employee to fit the job well and do the performance that is necessary to do the job well. A way that human resource can analyze the performance of its employees is to look at the three major factors that equate to the performance which is the individual ability to perform tasks such as their talents, the effort level expended that deals with employee motivation, and the third is organizational support that is training and development of employees. Performance (P) = Ability (A) x Effort (E) x Support

As an HR professional, I wanted to focus this research on finding the answers to the questions I had around turnover. My research will include the concepts of recruitment and selection in acquiring human resources as well as compensation and training and development and will be used in formulating the strategic recruitment plan.

The needs of employees and managers may sometimes be conflicting. For example, managers require high levels of production and longer working hours whereas employees want more time off and more focus on work/life balance. A good HR department need to work with both groups to find the right balance. A way of resolving these conflicts is to focus on the overall needs of the organisation. Ensuring that the appropriate workers are recruited and retained will help this. The skills and abilities of the employee need to be aligned to their job role and HR need to tailor development and training to ensure productivity is reached and to manage turnover of employees.

Whether an organization consists of five or 25,000 employees, human resources management is vital to the success of the organization. HR is important to all managers because it provides managers with the resources – the employees – necessary to produce the work for the managers and the organization. Beyond this role, HR is capable of becoming a strong strategic partner when it comes to “establishing the overall direction and objectives of key areas of human resource management in order to ensure that they not only are consistent with but also support the achievement of business goals.” (Massey, 1994, p. 27)

Knowing how to use the employee’s skills and knowledge to benefit the company is crucial when competing. Being aware of who is working in the company is only one of the steps needed to succeed. A company is the collection of people with different skills and talents who come together to produce a finished product. From the intern who may runs errands to the CEO of the company, everyone plays an important role in the success of the company. How is it that a company ensures that the people are retained and motivated to work? It is through the human resources department! Although some may think that the human resource personnel are only there to listen to the employees’ problems, HR is much more than this. To further explore the world of the human resources apartment, I conducted an interview with Lori Whol who is part of the personnel of the human resources department at Devon Energy.

The newly important role of HR is immediately apparent in light of the increased importance of recruitment at organizations today.

Because of scarce resources and the effort that must be expended upon training new employees, it is essential that companies find the right people to do the job. Furthermore, at knowledge-based
Today, HR issues such as low employee morale, absenteeism and high turnover rate are challenging for organisations and HR managers.
The HR department is very important in each organization. In the present day all organizations looks for employees who have high potential and are of high quality. This department is therefore very crucial when the success of an organization is concerned.
