|Human Resources involves developing policies, procedures and programs to ensure an organization has an adequate number of people with the right knowledge, skills and abilities to achieve its objectives. When HR is aligned with the strategic goals and objectives of an organization, it becomes a strategic partner in the management of the organization, ensuring the best pool of talent to pioneer, compete and be at the top of its field.
