A motivated and committed HR is closely linked to the optimum business performance. It has a direct impact on the efficiency, productivity and quality of the organization and the rest of its employees as suggested by studies (Golding, 2010). The HR department has over the years been limited to performing employee management tasks that can be easily carried out by automated systems and other less knowledgeable individuals. In fact, in most cases even these basic tasks are not performed well enough which spoils the work environment and the functioning ability of an organization. A dedicated effort is required to not only ensure the deliverance of these basic plans but also include other objectives that should be fulfilled by the HR. The investment that goes into running HR is entirely wasted unless it reveals a return in the form of better organizational structure (Galford, 1998).Therefore, it is observed that enhancement in the below mentioned aspects of the HR department can help make it an important asset for any organization.
Human Resource department is meant to work in close co-ordination with other departments of the organization. It should be removed from its side-lined role and given a chance to provide useful input in the overall strategy of an organization. The HR professionals should be fully aware of what goes in every single department of an organization. It should then be able to give a specialized opinion on how these departments can be transformed into more efficient and productive units. This approach indicates towards assigning greater responsibility to the HR department who can apply their corporate mind-set to other departments. A typical organization consists of several departments that differ from each other in many respects. HR can act as a valuable source of bringing all of these units together in an organization. It also helps implement greater accountability where the performance of these departments can be measured by HR which itself can be held responsible for taking steps that help improve performance. The processes carried out in this regard should be relevant to the distinctiveness of each department and should be able to exploit the talent that is present in these units. As a result, the organizational structure is greatly improved.
