Human resource management (HRM), or human resource development, entails planning, implementing, and managing recruitment, as well as selection, training, career, and organizational development initiatives within an organization. The goal of HRM is to maximize the productivity of an organization by optimizing the effectiveness of its employees while simultaneously improving the work life of employees and treating employees as valuable resources. Consequently, HRM encompasses efforts to promote personal development, employee satisfaction, and compliance with employment-related laws Human Resource is a key to the success of a company by keeping in connection with the organization's objectives and business strategies. Human Resource maintains a healthy work environment between company policies and individuals. Human resource management focuses on securing, maintaining, and utilizing an effective work force, which organizations cannot survive without. Human resource management can also be described as the relationship between the employer and the employee. . Employees are the most important asset to a business and to achieve equilibrium between employer and employee goals and needs, HRM departments focus on three general functions or activities; planning, implementation, and evaluation. The planning function refers to the development of human resource policies and regulations. Human resource managers attempt to determine future HRM activities and plan for the implementation of HRM procedures to help companies realize their goals. Implementation of HRM plans involves four primary activities: acquisition, development, compensation, and maintenance. Acquisition entails the hiring of workers most likely to help a company attain its goals. The development function encompasses the training of workers to perform their tasks in accordance with company strategy. This activity also involves company efforts to control and change employee behavior via reviews, appraisals, incentives, and discipline. Compensation covers the payment of employees for their services. Maintenance requires structuring labor relations, the interaction between a company's management and its unionized employees, and ensuring compliance with federal and state employment laws. Finally, the evaluation function includes the assessment of a company's HRM policies to determine whether they are effective. As an organization grows and expands, the HR department is aware of the organization needs to plan accordingly. The HRM plays so many roles within the business, it is imparitive that the main elements of Human resource be completed by; Planning which is the process of determining the goals and objectives of a business for a future period of time, developing the strategies guiding the firm’s operations and utilizing resources towards achieving the set goals and objectives. The HR planning is all about getting the right people and developing them to meet the company’s objectives. * Recruitment & Selection is imperative for the HRM to know
The stock answer to the question of what the future of the human resources profession will be like is as vague as it is unlovely: "Being more strategic".
Broadly interpreted, this figurative description means less of a concentration on traditional "administrative" fiefdoms - areas such as succession planning, reward, recruitment, employee relations, and so on - and more emphasis on how the management and development of people can be used to build competitive advantage.

A harder approach - people as human resources
A different view of HRM is associated with the Michigan Business School (Fombrun, Tichy and Devanna, 1984).
