“The linchpin for organizational effectiveness is having the right talent in the right place at the right time.” – Leslie Joyce, Ph.D., human resource professional
Human Resource (HR) professionals play a vital role within organizations by finding and placing the right person at the right time. HR professionals support business operations by contributing to workforce training, leadership development, staffing design, compensation and benefits administration, labor relations management, risk management, and health and safety program administration.
