The more traditional usage within corporations and businesses refers to the individuals within a firm or agency, and to the portion of theorganization that deals with hiring, firing, training, and other personnel issues, typicallyreferred to as 'human resources management'.Different terms are use to denote humanresource management. They are labour management, labour administration, labour management relations, employee employer relations, industrial relations, personaladministration and human asset management.In simple words it can be defined as Employing people, maintaining and compensatingtheir series in time with the job and organizational requirement.
