Human Resource (HR) practice involves the mobilisation of the right people with the right skills with adequate knowledge and technology to support the ultimate goal of an organisation. This clearly makes the work of an HR practitioner a strategic and a crucial one in the success or otherwise of any organisation.
In order for a successful mobilisation, it means therefore that the Practitioner must be someone who has good organisational skills. He/she must be ready and willing to do all the work underground.
How do you choose the right person with the right skills for a specific job without you having knowledge in the arts of making a good judgement of who will make a perfect choice for that position? This makes the HR a strategic forecaster for the organisation. It needs tact and diplomacy at the highest level to do that.
For any organisation to strive in the changing needs of the job market, you will need people who have adequate knowledge and technology to be able to compete in the competitive environment. Certificate alone does not make one competent. It behooves on the HR to be able to identify and make informed decisions about the applicant.
It must be noted that the Human Resource Practice in modern organisation is one that is geared towards having a competitive advantage over your competitors so as to meet the clients’ insatiable needs. It needs training and retraining of employees for an effective and efficient execution of daily routines.
So if you are considering a career in Human resource Management and Development, you must have all these and many others which will be addressed in my subsequent write ups.
