 What does this Material mean jugnooo ?? how we have to take it ??

 hurry up for discussion

It's the people in an organization that carry out many important work activities. Managers and HR professionals have the important job of organizing people so that they can effectively perform these activities. This requires viewing people as human assets, not costs to the organization. Looking at people as assets is part of contemporary human resource management and human capital management.

At all levels of the organization, managers and HR professionals work together to develop employees' skills. For example, HR professionals advise managers and supervisors how to assign employees to different roles in the organization, thereby helping the organization adapt successfully to its environment. In a flexible organization, employees are shifted around to different business functions based on business priorities and employee preferences

Employee relations mean managing employer-employee relationships. Generally, employee relations are a term used to describe a company's efforts to prevent and resolve problems arising from situations at work. The goal of an employee relations program is to increase employee satisfaction and maintain good morale among workers. Happy workers are more productive, and more productivity means a better bottom line for the business. Advice is provided to supervisors on how to correct poor performance and employee misconduct.   In such instances, progressive discipline and regulatory and other requirements must be considered in effecting disciplinary actions and in resolving employee grievances and appeals.   Information is provided to employees to promote a better understanding of management's goals and policies.  Information is also provided to employees to assist them in correcting poor performance, on or off duty misconduct, and/or to address personal issues that affect them in the workplace.  

MGT501 Handout's Page # 30

the goal of successfully managing change at short intervals often requires employee cooperation through emphasis on

communication and involvement. 

likely to wish to develop employee-relations policies based on high individualism paying above market rates

to recruit and retain the best labor,

careful selection and recruitment systems to ensure high quality and skill potential,

emphasis on internal training schemes to develop potential for further growth,

payment system designed to reward individual performance and cooperation,

performance and appraisal reviews,

and strong emphasis on team work and communication ...

In short, technical and capital investment is matched by human resource investments, at times reaching near the ideals of human resource management.

I think these are some of important points.....
