What is Human Resources?

“William R. Tracey, in The Human Resources Glossary defines Human Resources as: “The people that staff and operate an organization … as contrasted with the financial and material resources of an organization.”

In a second meaning, Human Resources is also the name of a department or functional area from which the employees provide HR services to the rest of the organization.”


Unions Associations

A union is an organization with the legal right to represent workers and negotiate the terms of employment with the company plus manage the terms of the collective agreement.


How to Write and Enforce Policies

Companies capture their rules and guidelines in documents of formal sets of statements called policies.


Employee Handbook

An employee handbook, sometimes called a policy manual, is statement of the policies of the business and how the business is to be conducted. It’s given to employees to help them understand the expectations of them and also describes what they can expect from the company. When done and communicated correctly, it is an excellent tool to avoid litigation.


Employee Relations

This is where you are identifying and resolving most workplace issues involving employees. In a unionized company, this would only involve non-bargaining unit employees. Since the number of workplace issues involving employees is far-reaching, the best thing is to search legal and business blogs for related articles.


Shareholders who are Employees

A person who owns all or part of a company for which they work for. The person has responsibilities as company shareholder, as an employer and an employee, all at the same time.
