  7. To Be Ethically and Socially Responsive to the Needs of Society

To Help the Organization Reach Its Goals

The HR department, like other departments in an organization, exists to achieve the goals of the organization first and if it does not meet this purpose, the HR department (or for that matter any other unit) will wither and die.

To Employ the Skills and Abilities of the Workforce Efficiently

The primary purpose of HRM is to make people’s strengths productive and to benefit customers, stockholders and employees.

To Provide the Organization With Well-trained and Well-motivated Employees

HRM requires that employees be motivated to exert their maximum efforts, that their performance is evaluated properly for results and that they are remunerated on the basis of their contributions to the organization.

To Increase to the Fullest the Employee’s Job Satisfaction and Self-actualization

It tries to prompt and stimulate every employee to realize his potential. To this end, suitable programs have to be designed aimed at improving the quality of work-life (QWL).

To Develop and Maintain a Quality of Work Life

It makes employment in the organization a desirable, personal and social, situation. Without improvement in the quality of work-life, it is difficult to improve organizational performance.

To Communicate HR Policies to All Employees

It is the responsibility of HRM to communicate in the fullest possible sense; tapping ideas, opinions, and feelings of customers, non-customers, regulators, and other external public as well as understanding the views of internal human resources.

To Be Ethically and Socially Responsive to the Needs of Society

HRM must ensure that organizations manage human resources in an ethical and socially responsible manner by ensuring compliance with legal and ethical standards.
