In today’s world, no organisation can afford to overlook or undermine the importance of hr services. Interestingly, many of us tend to take these services for granted as if people in hr are enjoying life in the calm and comfort of the office. It is, therefore, important to mention here that hr services are at par with the other major functions of an organisation.
According to Dr. Philip Kotler, there are basic four elements of marketing, popularly known as marketing 4Ps that are product, price, place, and promotion. But, the 5th P that is extremely important for the marketing success is People. After all, an organisation is run by the people and for the people. However, with the word ‘People’, we shall confine our discussion here between those who contribute to the marketing success of an organisation.
Now, the million dollar question is: who does the recruitment of people for the marketing success of an organisation? It’s none other than the hr that may apparently be enjoying life at the office to many. Again, who takes care of the employee welfare and an organisation’s work culture? The answer is straight and simple – HR. Likewise, there are many that are silently done by the hr department and people like you and us forget to recognise them.
Things to know about the HR Services:
Coming to this point, it reminds us about the codfish that lays ten thousand eggs but never gets an appreciation as she never cackles to say what she has done. To our findings, hr services are just like that. Here is a list of some points to consider for the hr.
• People in the hr work silently and their work is usually not noticed by most of the people in an organisation, as they are to interact with the department heads or the CEO, for instance, on an everyday basis.
• It is the hr people who work as the human face of an organisation while interacting with the third party such as vendors and future recruits. At the same time, they are those who are responsible for employee retention and their well being. In fact, you will always find some organisations around the world where some people are with a single organisation for the last twenty years or so. This, however, should not be construed as a fault of those people. Rather, they are indeed happy working with the same organisation for so many years. If you are still in doubts, we then advise you for referring to the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory that explains it better.
In short, hr people do multitasking in the best interest of an organisation and its people. For instance, they manage payroll, recruit people, appreciate you and your colleagues when you deserve it best, let’s you know the way forward for your career advancement with the organisation through timely appraisals, to say the least here. So, never forget to appreciate the hr people the next time you come in touch with them face to face. After all, an honest appreciation is something that we all crave for.
