Why does a quality Human Resources team matter? Business organizations are becoming more and more complex every day, and human resources management has become just as intricate with rapid changes occurring locally and globally. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) identified eight competencies and 14 functional areas of knowledge for HR professionals for their certification process. HR plays a strategic role in the growth of an organization. This includes everything from talent acquisition and talent management, innovative benefits, competitive compensation and consulting on risk management issues.
