Introduction

Emma martin Kimberley Stace Human Resources Management "Human resources are the employees or personnel in a business that help it to achieve its goal" (Dave Hall 1999) "Human resources management is defined as an integrated approach which ensures the efficient management of human resources. It is part of the overall business plan"(Dave Hall 1999) One of the most important tasks that involve the personnel department in a business is human resource management. A business is only likely to achieve its objectives if its employees are used effectively. Planning properly how to use human resources will help a business to achieve its objectives. Human resource management (HRM) has strategic implications. HRM must be integrated into the strategic planning of a business. It means constantly looking for better ways of using employees to benefit the Organisation. Throughout this essay I will be analysing the company TGI Fridays (which is owned by Whitelodging) human resource management policies. To do this I will be looking at ways in which they can, reduce absenteeism, increase staff retention, train and develop their staff in line with their goals and their practice on equal opportunities. Absenteeism can be very damaging for a company. High levels of staff absence may lead to output and productivity of the business falling. There are still the costs involved of paying absence staff even though there are not working. ...read more.

bringing new people in that will fill the personal specification and job description and that will also bring new ideas to the business. I also feel that the business demonstrates the Theory X approach towards its employees by giving them bonuses, assuming that they are motivated by money, maybe more things could be arrange outside work to get the staff working as a team and socialising and fulfilling more needs then just money. They do give out employee of the week that will generate awareness and appreciation to that employee which may be beneficial to them, but its only beneficial if you get employee of the week. Managers are motivated well when they have their team meetings; they get reconition as a team, the Hawthorn effect. All together I feel the human resources management practices to reduced staff absenteeism is very effective at TGI Fridays. Increasing staff retention is important for the Human Resource Management. Chris Hendry believes that the HRM department should keep an eye on general matters, for example how many staff are leaving. These matters are likely to receive closer attention when there are specific plans to grow a business and there is a gap between requirements and existing skills and numbers of employees. Working out labour turnover e.g. ...read more.

Conclusion

TGI Fridays Human Resource Management have a policy on Equal Opportunities that helps it align with EU and UK laws. (Appendix B) A policy from the human resource manager. TGI Fridays has a very clear policy on equal opportunities they comply with all UK and EU laws and do not allow discrimination and regard discrimination of any kind a very serious matter. TGI employ a mixture of age, race, gender employees and I feel they have a very appropriate equal opportunities policy and follow it correctly. Human resource management is about being able to organise and manage human resources correctly, effectively, and efficiently to help the business meet its goal. From this essay I hope you can see the different areas of a business that human resource management deal with and how the human resource management of TGI Fridays manage aspects such as staff retention, absentessism, trainings and equal opportunities and from the theory make decisions on how effectively you feel they are managed. Analysing these areas can show how effective human resource management is. I feel that it is important that human resource management does exist, without it human resources would not be used to there full advantage for the company. People are important in the running of the company, and managing them correctly reflects positively on an Organisation and helps the Organisation in its strategic planning and goals for the future. ...read more.
