Assessing the Importance of Human Resource Management In Organizational Development Is it too farfetched to state that well before there was order there was purpose? Do we naturally gravitate towards a system of structure and rules, or are we at our best when chaos and disorder lead us on a path of new invention or discovery? Who establish and reinforce guidelines of human behavior and socialization? Frederick W. Taylor, considered the father of scientific management, summarized scientific management as: (1) science, not rules of thumb; (2) harmony, not discord; (3) cooperation, not individualism; and (4) maximum output, not restricted output (Ivancevich, 2010, p. 6). In a workplace environment, the application of Taylor’s scientific management observations forms the basis for developing the basis for human resource management. One of the most significant decisions organizational leaders will make is how to develop and implement an effective human resource management program. Ivancevich (2010) describes human resource management as “the function performed in organizations that facilitates the most effective use of people (employees) to achieve organizational and individual goals” (p. 4). The activities managed by human resource departments involve the interest of three key groups. Company leaders are able to collect and understand the needs of their employees, and thereby implement rules and regulations that maximize company productivity; Employees receive access to a wealth of services that add value to their work and personal experiences. Human resource departments are able to provide government agencies with significant data necessary to track and manage compliance issues. To satisfy the needs and demands of company leaders, employees, and government agencies, human resource managers depend on six core areas of responsibility. These areas

The Importance of Human Resource Management are human resource planning, recruitment and selection; human resource development; compensation and benefits; EEO and affirmative action; employee and labor relations; and safety and health. If HRM is performing effectively, satisfying each of these areas would also satisfy the demands all three parties. In order to facilitate this effective result, HRM must start each action with a clear purpose or intention. What results should these actions create? The first and probably most significant action of HRM to consideration should be planning. “Human resource planning is both a process and a set of plans” (Ivancevich, 2010, p. 125.).
