The simple answer is that Human Resource Management is the function of a department inside a business to manage Human Capital, specifically the hiring, on boarding, training, daily operational functions and terminating of employees. Additionally, the HR department is responsible for communicating and monitoring policies in the employee handbook. This can and should include employee benefits, compensations, leave, and compliance issues.
