Human resource management (HRM) is the strategic and coherent approach to the management of an organization's most valued assets - the people working there who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the business. It's an essential part of every manager's responsibilities, but many organizations find it advantageous to establish a specialist division to provide an expert service dedicated to ensuring that the human resource function is performed efficiently.

The rate of change facing organizations has never been greater and organizations must absorb and manage change at a much faster rate than in the past. In order to implement a successful business strategy to face this challenge, organizations, large or small, must ensure that they have the right people capable of delivering the strategy. The market place for talented, skilled people is competitive and expensive. Taking on new staff can be disruptive to existing employees. Also, it takes time to develop 'cultural awareness', product/ process/ organization knowledge and experience for new staff members.
As organizations vary in size, aims, functions, complexity, construction, the physical nature of their product, and appeal as employers, so do the contributions of human resource management. But, in most the ultimate aim of the function is to: "ensure that at all times the business is correctly staffed by the right number of people with the skills relevant to the business needs", that is, neither overstaffed nor understaffed in total or in respect of any one discipline or work grade.

Experience in Yrs No: of % Employee's The employees were segregated based on their experience in intervals of 5 years. [...]

[...] The best way for them to combat this is by making employee retention a priority. Successful businesses are built by their employees. By understanding their needs, a company can save itself a lot more than just money. Knowing why employee retention is so important is easy. Implementing the above ideas into a company's corporate culture, however, is not. It is a gradual process that should be enthusiastically encouraged by the company's leaders and led by example. Following these simple suggestions, a company will prove itself to be proactive rather than reactive to the needs of its employees. [...]

[...] Corporate's are facing a lot of problems in employee retention of late. Hiring knowledgeable people for the job is essential for an employer. But retention is as equally important as hiring. There is no dearth of opportunities for talented persons. There are many organizations which are looking for such employees. If a person is not satisfied by the job he's doing, he may switch over to a more suitable job. In today's environment it becomes very important for organizations to retain their employees. [...]
