There arevarious organizational objectives for the human resource management in the current businessscenario (Armstrong and Taylor 2014). One of the key objectives of human resourcemanagement is to driving and enhancing organizational productivity. Human resourcefunctionaries have the responsibilities of defining the clear and precise organizational goals andaim for the employees. Stating out clear goals will help the employees to have the fair idea aboutthe goals and objectives that they have to accomplish in the organization.

Another objective of human resource management is to enhance the job satisfactionof the employees. Various initiatives being taken by the human resource managers such asinitiation of the employee welfare activities along with providing and skill development trainingand different types of job enrichment will help the employees to be more equipped and moremotivated in their workplace (Gunaseelan and Ollukkaran 2012).However, for the contemporary business organizations, the definitions for humanresource management are rapidly evolving. This is due to the reason that, contemporary businessorganizations are operating in different and diverse sectors and competing with severalcompetitors.

A few years ago, the key motive toprovide training to the employees is to train them in accomplishing the particular job. However,the definition of the training from being just providing assistance for the employees have beenevolved to one of the key factors of enhancing the motivation of the employees (Lazaroiu 2015).For the contemporary business organizations, training helps them to equip the employees indealing with the organizational challenge. Moreover, for the employees in the contemporarybusiness organizations, employees have to be trained with different set of skills and expertise,which are also to be enhanced by the use of the training.In the human resource management, recruitment and selection of the employees refers tothe selection of the right employees for the right job.

As discussed earlier,human resource management deals with the employees and thus initiation of the ethicalprinciples in managing human resources will help the organization to instill the ethics among theemployees.
