What is HR?

Human resources (HR) refers to the management of employees who make up a business, company or enterprise. It incorporates everything from recruitment and pay to training and organisational development.

HR professionals uphold the values, visions and ideals of a company. They manage the working language, systems and habits of the workforce. Their role is incredibly important for a company’s success as it is their responsibility to ensure that the company is at working at full capacity.
