The Human Resources Management Expectation and outcomes within International Pharmaceutical Conglomerates
I planning to explore how the Human Resources functions operates in big organizations and its influence not only on the business outcomes but also on social part of the employees.
The overall purpose of human resource management is to ensure that the organization is able to achieve their success through people. Ulrich and Lake (1990) states that: ‘HRM systems can be the source of organizational capabilities that allow firms to learn and capitalize on new opportunities’. But in the other hand HRM has an ethical dimension as well, which means it should also concern the rights and needs of people in an organization.
With the increased competition, globalization, boundless technological advances, -companies are forced to think about the factors like HRM, environment…etc to run the extra mile ahead of the others. Therefore nowadays employers consider investments on the HRM functions are very significant and effective, rather than seeing it as just a cost.
