Human Relations In its broadest sense covers all types of interactions among people- their conflicts, cooperative efforts and group relationships. It is the study of why our beliefs, attitudes and behaviors sometimes cause relationship problems in our personal lives and in work-related situations. The study of human relations emphasizes the analysis of human behavior, prevention strategies and resolution of behavioral problems.
