Ten years ago hardly any organization had HR departments or talked about it. Today it is difficult to find organizations which employ a large number of people who do not talk about HRD. In spite of this popularization of HRD in the last few years, success experience of HRD is limited to a few organizations and many others are yet to translate their goodwill into action. But even today, the organizations in the service sector continue to neglect it.
But HR is much more progressing in the manufacturing sector. There are a lot many new concepts which are emerging in this field like Stress management, self development, achievement motivation, emotional competence, organizational intelligence etc. If these companies would not invest in the people they would not have grown and expanded. Now-a-days organizations and their top management have recognized that HRD cannot be limited to a few employees in coverage. It is also recognized that HRD is too important to be left as an informal processes and rather it should be a well planned activity.
In a nutshell, we can say that the service sector has a lot to learn from the HR industry.
