This increased attention comes from the realization that an organization’s employees enable organization to achieve its goal and management of this human resource is critical to an organization’s success. The presence of human being is no new invention but identifying them as a resource in a more formal way has been made in the recent days. The history of HRM can be characterized as moving through four phases as craft system, scientific management system, the human resource relationship approach and the current organizational science such as human resource approach.

The company considers human resource as an integral part of corporate management for higher productivity. Company follows a dedicated policy for recruitment, training and development, motivating, organizing and retaining and maintaining the existing human resources on the basis of quality education, training and operating experiences.
