Human Resource Management (HRM) is a management function that helps manager's recruit, select, train and develops members for an organization.
According to Edward Flippo: Personal Management is the planning, organizing, directing and controlling of the procurement, development, compensation, integration, maintenance and separation of HR to the end that individual organization and social objectives are accomplished.
The scope of HRM is indeed vast. All major activities in the working life of a worker from the time of his or her entry into an organization until he or she leaves come under the purview of HRM. Specifically, the activities included are HR planning, job analysis and design, recruitment and selection, orientation and placement, training and development, performance appraisal and job evaluation, employee and executive remuneration, motivation and communication, welfare, safety and health, industrial relations (IR) and the like.

It is emerging as a distinct philosophy of management aiming at policies that promote mutuality mutual goals, mutual respect, mutual rewards and mutual responsibilities.
PM has a limited scope and an inverted orientation. It viewed labor as a tool, the behavior of which could be manipulated for the benefit of the organization and replaced when it was worn-out. It was filled with not-very-productive employees whose services could be spared with minimal damage to the organization's ongoing operations.

All employment activity should be centralized if the policies of the top management are to be implemented consistently and efficiently. Only when personnel requisitions go through one central source and all employment records are kept up-to-date is there a possibility of maximum efficiency and success in hiring. The advantages of centralizing of recruitment and selection are: It reduces the administrative cost associated with selection by consolidating all activities in a single office; It relieves line offices of the detail involved in hiring workers, which is common under a decentralized plan; It tends to make the selection of workers scientific; It makes possible the development of a centralized manpower pool in a company; It provides a wider opportunity for placing an applicant in several departments of the company; It tends to reduce favoritism as a basis for selection.

The name Yahoo! is an acronym for "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle," but Filo and Yang insist they selected the name because they liked the general definition of a yahoo: "rude, unsophisticated, and uncouth."
