Human Resource Management RolesHCS/341May 27, 2011Greg Guntly Human Resource Management Roles Human resource managers are responsible for providing support to all areas of the health care organization operations. They ensure all departments abide by federal laws and regulations. Human Resources managers in health care support both the company and the employees who work for the organization. Human resource professionals face many obstacles in their attempt to deliver high-quality health care to citizens. Some of these constraints include budgets, lack of congruence between different stakeholders values, absenteeism rates, high rates of turnover and low morale of health personnel (Kabene, 2006).
Human resource managers are faced with a host of issues while trying to improve medical services and reshape the organizations culture. They focus on workplace safety, claims handling, training and performance monitoring, state and federal regulations, counseling, and staff moral & retention, plus a host of other duties. Human resources fill a variety of personal needs of the employees and the employer. Human resource managers are responsible for handling employee recruitment, placement and retention; hospital job audits; employee disputes and complaints; and the administration of government labor rules (Austin, 2010). The health care managers in human resource are there as advisors to the medical staff for issues pertaining to the employee??™s personal life and daily functions. With duties that range from performance management to safety, human resources members play an important role in the health care organization. The HR management team makes sure employees deliver effective health care services and promote maximum patient outcomes.
Human resource managers are the heart of the health care organization. Their training and expertise help keep the organization functional by providing support to all areas of the health care organization operations. In order to continue to deliver quality services and run an exceptional organization, human resources still have to conduct more research to introduce more efficient effective policies, which all organizations would benefit from.References 1.
