About the Conference
Human Resources Management, in today’s volatile business environment, has been playing the role of a strategic business partner. Along with addressing functional issues and fire fighting the situations, HRM is now expected to strategically contribute towards the return on investment of any organization. Human resource management, therefore, is expected to deal with core issues of managing the change in the business processes and aligning the organizations’ systems, structures, and policies to leverage competitiveness, with regard to the operating business environment. This compels the HRM practitioners to keep the specific performance-driven goals in mind and act according to the changed business demands.
