He was more interested with the regimen ofhumans. The functions of the department were, recruitment, selection, appraisal, reward,handling of grievance, etc. But now, HRM is defined as the procedure which recruits the humanresource and mobilizes them in gaining the objectives and targets of the organization (Singh etal., 2012).
