Human Resources Technician


“Human resources isn’t something we do, it’s the thing that runs our company.” Steve Wynn.

Human resources are the people who make up the workforce of an organization, business sector, or economy. A human-resource department (HR department) of an organization performs human resource management, overseeing various aspects of employment, such as compliance with labor law and employment standards, administration of employee benefits, organizing of employees files with the required documents for future reference, some aspect of recruitment. Human resource managers plan, direct, and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization.

The seven major functions of Human Resources are: strategic management, workforce planning and employment (recruitment and selection), human resource development (training and development), total rewards (compensation and benefits), policy formulation, employee and labor relations (employment law), and risk management.
