Human resource management (HRM) is an integral part of any organization. It basically involves the management of the workforce or the members of the organization. It involves the process of selecting, weeding out, training, assessing, and rewarding members or workers. HRM also seeks to evaluate leadership in the organization, as well as the corporate culture, ensuring that these comply with labor laws. HRM works to manage human corporate and organizational activities in the hope of improving the general standing and performance of the organization. This paper now seeks to establish a general overview of human resources management, including its functions and its relation to public administration. This paper is being carried out in order to establish a general understanding of HRM functions, including their general applicability to corporations and to the public sector.
