About the Human Resources Department

Once referred to as “personnel”, the role and functions of Human Resources have rapidly expanded, partly in response to regulatory requirements affecting employers—to include such responsibilities as equal employment opportunity programs, health and safety efforts, labor relations, more complex and variable benefits programs, specialized training and development, and a range of organizational development, and career planning programs that were previously not considered essential.
