Technology and Managing the Seven HR Basics


Seven HR Basics

HR management, also known as human resources management, is the practice of managing an organization's workforce. It involves activities such as recruitment and selection, employee training and development, performance management, compensation and benefits administration, employee relations, and compliance with labor laws and regulations.


The primary goal of HR management is to ensure that an organization has the right people with the right skills in the right positions, and that they are motivated, engaged, and productive.


Effective HR management is essential for creating a positive work culture, attracting and retaining top talent, and achieving organizational goals and objectives.

The seven HR basics, also known as the fundamentals of human resources management, are as follows:


1. Recruitment and Selection

This involves the process of attracting and selecting the right candidates for open positions within an organization.


2. Employee Compensation and Benefits

This includes the various forms of pay and benefits that employees receive, such as salaries, bonuses, and health insurance.


3. Employee Training and Development

This involves providing employees with the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their jobs effectively, as well as opportunities for career growth and development.


4. Performance Management

This includes setting performance goals and expectations, monitoring employee performance, providing feedback and coaching, and conducting performance evaluations.


5. Employee Relations

This involves managing the relationship between the organization and its employees, including dealing with employee grievances, handling disciplinary actions, and promoting a positive work environment.


6. HR Information Systems

This includes managing employee data and information, such as payroll, benefits, and performance records, using technology-based systems.


7. Compliance

This involves ensuring that the organization is in compliance with various laws and regulations related to employment, such as equal employment opportunity laws and labor laws.


The Role of Technology in Managing the Seven HR Basics

Technology plays a critical role in managing the seven HR basics. Here are some examples of how technology can support HR management:

  1. Recruitment and Selection: Technology can be used to automate the recruitment and selection process, from posting job openings on job boards to screening resumes and conducting initial interviews. Applicant tracking systems (ATS) can help HR managers to manage the recruitment process more efficiently and effectively.

  2. Employee Compensation and Benefits: Technology can be used to manage employee compensation and benefits, from payroll processing to administering health and retirement plans. HR management systems (HRMS) can help to automate these processes and ensure accuracy and compliance.

  3. Employee Training and Development: Technology can be used to deliver training and development programs to employees, whether through online courses, webinars, or virtual classrooms. Learning management systems (LMS) can help to track employee progress and assess the effectiveness of training programs.

  4. Performance Management: Technology can be used to manage employee performance, from setting performance goals and expectations to conducting performance evaluations. Performance management software can help HR managers to monitor employee performance and provide feedback and coaching.

  5. Employee Relations: Technology can be used to manage employee relations, from tracking employee grievances and complaints to conducting employee surveys. HR management systems can help HR managers to monitor employee engagement and address employee concerns in a timely and effective manner.

  6. HR Information Systems: Technology can be used to manage employee data and information, from tracking employee attendance and leave to maintaining employee records. HR management systems can help to ensure accuracy and compliance and provide HR managers with real-time data and insights.

  7. Compliance: Technology can be used to ensure compliance with various laws and regulations related to employment, from tracking hours worked to maintaining employee records. HR management systems can help to automate compliance processes and ensure accuracy and timeliness.
