The relevance of the DP to the company’s success
People management has played a very important role in resolving conflicts of interest between employees and employers, in a scientific and sophisticated way, and in creating a harmonious environment, where production can be achieved at an increasing pace.
The importance of DP has increased with the advancement and application of technology. People management emphasizes the role of teams in work organization. Psychology, sociology and other related behavioral sciences help manage the workforce to get the desired results and effectively.
The personnel department helps other departments to contribute to organizational goals. It is the personnel department that is in charge of the responsibility for recruiting, selecting, placing and monitoring workers in their respective departments.
However, if the personnel department is not careful in selecting and inducing the right people to the right jobs, not only will the other departments not be as productive as expected, but this will also lead to a waste of resources.
Ultimately, the effectiveness of each department depends on how efficiently the personnel department works. This is because if the personnel department selects the right people and maintains the appropriate specialized follow-up, then all departments at the level of effective organization result in the company’s success.
