  4. 4. Human Resource Management - Introduction and brief overview <ul><li>Human Resource Management, or HRM for short, captures all the activities that link the organization with the people it employs. HRM encompasses a broad set of activities, which aim towards personnel selection, personnel orientation, placement and separation, job analysis and design, job and performance appraisal, training, career planning, security safety and health, union relations and wages and salaries. HRM functions are performed within the predetermined managerial context. Thus, HRM does not include organizational strategic planning or management control functions. However, HRM is shaped according to the strategic priorities of the organization. </li></ul>

Job design involves the detailed specification of the activities that the employee should perform as well as the skills and the experience he [the employee] should display. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Scope of HRM (cont.) <ul><li>Recruitment and selection The selection process is a series of specific steps used to decide which recruits should be hired. The process begins when recruits apply for employment and ends with the hiring decision. Though the final hiring decision is made by the immediate supervisor or manager in many cases the HRM department evaluates applicants in regard to their potential suitability through the use of valid procedures. </li></ul><ul><li>Orientation and remuneration orientation is a socialization process via which an individual’s personality and organizational culture and values are met. Compensation is what employees receive in exchange for their contribution to the organization. When managed correctly, it helps the organization achieve its objectives and obtain, maintain, and retain a productive workforce </li></ul>

The intent of these laws is to help employees deal with hardships and protect them from future workplace hazards. Although these mandate coverages are expensive, they are common in developed nations. The challenge for HR specialists becomes how to comply proactively with the least cost to the employer and the greatest benefit for the employees . </li></ul>

  44. 46. Trade union <ul><li>A Trade Union is an association of workers in any trade or allied traders for the protection and enhancing their interests in regard to wages, hours and conditions of labor and/or the provision, from their common funds, of assistance to members during strikes, sickness, unemployment, old age etc. </li></ul>
  45. 47. The secretary of the Indian Labour Federation , or “Standing Committee of the All-India Trade Union Congress ,” as it is called, is Mr. Chiman Lal , who claimed that under this federation are combined 97 unions, with 1,500,000 members . . Brief history: Trade Unionism is a new thing in India. Before 1918 it did not exist except for a few unions for white workers. It was out of the strike movement of 1918 that the unions came into existence. The first one was organised at Madras by Mr. B. P. Wadia. Since then the progress of the movement has been both rapid and successful. The amount of success can be determined from the huge number of organised members, representing about 25 per cent. of the total number of the factory-going workers.
  46. 48. Principle of Trade Unionism <ul><li>Unity is strength. </li></ul><ul><li>Equal pay for equal work for the same job. </li></ul><ul><li>Security of service. </li></ul>
  47. 49. Role of Trade Union: <ul><li>The Trade Unions are organized by the workers to solve the labor problems created by or due to industrialization. Various agencies in the field of labor are working to tackle these problems. They use the methods of labor legislation and labor administration. Trade Unions deal or handle these problems more effectively and efficiently. It tries to facilitate the welfare of workers; eliminate exploitation through organized action like collective bargaining, welfare work, strikes etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus, it is concluded that the primary role of a Trade Union is to protect the workers and to channelize their efforts into more rational directions. </li></ul>
  48. 50. Functions of Trade Unions <ul><li>The functions of Trade Unions are wide and comprehensive. These functions have been termed as: </li></ul><ul><li>(i) Militant or protective functions, and </li></ul><ul><li>(ii) Fraternal, ministrant or positive functions. </li></ul><ul><li>The former functions aim at securing better conditions of work and employment for members through militant activities such as strikes, gheraos etc., if there is a failure of collective bargaining. The latter functions provide benefits to their members and support them during strikes/lockouts or during periods of temporary unemployment by giving them financial support out of the funds raised with their contributions. </li></ul>
  49. 51. Why are they important? <ul><li>The answer lies in the All India Central Council of Trade Unions- AICCTU is a fighting trade union centre of the Indian working class. AICCTU ’s motto of organizing the unorganized and unionizing the ununionized has established it as a trusted trade union centre among large sections of the most exploited and oppressed workers in different corners of India. </li></ul>

Normally near the beginning of a contract, this clause states management's acceptance of the union as the sole representative of designated employees. </li></ul><ul><li>Union security.

Unions seek contract terms that cause personnel decisions to be made on the basis of seniority. Often senior workers are given preferential treatment in job assignments, promotions, layoffs, vacation scheduling, overtime, and shift preferences. </li></ul><ul><li>Management rights. Management must retain certain rights to do an effective job. These may include the ability to require overtime work, decide on promotions into management, design jobs, and select employees.
