The HR department has many functions within an organisation. Diagrammatically, these functions are shown in Figure 1. This paper discusses some of the key points in HRM policy choices; including merit issues, job analysis and HR planning.
The first part of this paper evaluates the contribution merit issues has on employees and why it is a good idea to have such strategies in place. Disadvantages of merit issues are discussed but are over shadowed by their benefits and the positive contribution they have on organisations.
Motivation is touched on and the importances of management to have reward systems that motivate its employees are discussed. Also, the factors to consider when increasing pay and when awarding merit issues are discussed with relevant examples, models and theories throughout.
