Researching the Effectiveness of Human Resources
Overview
Businesses protect themselves against legal considerations by ensuring all employees are treated fairly and by remaining in compliance with regulatory requirements. Many organizations utilize a human resources department to monitor the activities involving human capital. The human resources manager engages in the development of human capital from a strategic viewpoint while guarding various aspects of employee rights, morale, placement, and compensation. Many of the human resources manager’s decisions are guided by regulatory requirements.
The purpose of this assignment is to compare and contrast the necessity of a human resources manager where different organizational sizes are a consideration.
Instructions
Part 1 Understanding the Human Resource Manager’s Function

Use the Internet to locate two sources defining the functions of a human resources manager. Note the Web sites where you located your sources.
Describe, define, and discuss the functions of human resources manager. You might list and discuss functions such as succession planning, compensation, human capital development, regulatory matters, or hiring practices. The assignment is not limited to these functions.
Pick three functions of the Human Resource Manager and list each function as a subheading in the paper. Discuss the functions thoroughly, providing a definition of the function, how the human resources manager administers the function, and how the organization is responsible for the ethical implementation of each function. Each function should be represented by two paragraphs of 5–8 sentences. Each function should also have at least one citation in proper APA format from your located sources.
