Human Resource Management (HRM), which is the management of human
resources, further reflects employee resourcing, and indeed employee resourcing can be
said to be an aspect of human resource management.
"The main functions of HR administration, staffing and
performance management within employee resourcing
consist of several distinct, but interrelated management activities."
( Raiden et al., 2004: p.7).
So a study in employee resourcing is definitely a study in human resource management.
This interchangeability has even given rise to Human Resource Planning (HRP)
which is an important step'branch in employee resourcing. It is this planning that makes
for better recruitment and selection of the workforce in a business or organization, as
well as its maintenance for achieving objectives. For employee resourcing, human
resource management serves the following functions:
" 1.) Selection 2.) Training and Development 3.) Performance
Evaluation and Management 4.) Promotions 5.) Redundancy
6.)Industrial and Employee Relations 7.) Record keeping of all
personal data 8.) Compensation, pensions, bonuses etc in liaison
with Payroll 9.) Confidential advice to internal 'customers' in
relation to problems at work & 10.) Career development"
