Tips and comments

Lack of jobs
One of the big issues that people face these days is the lack of jobs in human resource field. Due to economical crisis, many people are losing their jobs. Lack of jobs will reduce its value in the market. The tasks of the human resource manager will rise, since he will be responsible for making sure that all the employees are placed in their right place and according to their job description and also they are doing their work specifically. The request to ionize the human resources management was made in 2000, while the revision of ISO 9001 was made. It also requested for the human resource manager to clearly define the positions of all the employees. It causes controversy, as not all the employees want to be ionized.
