The Human Resources Department is responsible for:


Recruitment- Advertise job postings, source candidates, screen applicants, conduct preliminary interviews, and coordinate hiring efforts with managers responsible for making the final selection of candidates.


Safety- Workplace safety is an important factor. Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers have an obligation to provide a safe working environment for employees.


Employee Relations-  One of the main focus in HR is strengthening the employer-employee relationship through measuring job satisfaction, employee engagement, and resolving workplace conflict.


Compensation and Benefits- HR functions include setting compensation structures and evaluating competitive pay practices.


Compliance- Compliance with labor and employment laws is a critical HR function.


Training and Development- Employers must provide employees with the tools necessary for their success which, in many cases, means giving new employees extensive orientation training to help them transition into a new organizational culture.
