[Excerpt] This paper introduces human resource management, and shows why it is so important in modern organizations. It will help you understand how human resource management affects your future, and that of your organization. Human resources are every manager's job, both the general manager and the human resource professional. The job of enhancing the value of people in organizations is everyone's job, not the job of "human resource specialists" or the "human resource department"
