That meant HRuci was working with only part of the team, leaving behind the newly-promoted HR managers and department managers. The result was a staffing crisis within the company, with positions drying up and new employees needing to be hired. A third division, the corporate Human Resources Department, was established to fill in the gaps. While this made HRuci and SHrm more effective at their jobs, it also left them with fewer employees than they needed to adequately cover the entire scope of HR and Human Resources duties.
When the company first split up, HRuci and SHrm had an easy enough task: they just had to divide their staff according to departments (human resources, payroll, and legal, accounting, and safety) and assign employees to those departments. They even had two divisions: one for full-time workers, and one for part-time workers. They would provide training to their employees, coordinate benefits training, manage retirement plans, and so on. They also had to monitor employment records, employee records, and employment laws.
However, when the company reorganized again in 2021, everything changed. HRuci and SHrm were no longer in separate departments; they were combined into a single Human Resources department, and the entire department was renamed HRM. The new name gave HRM employees a more comprehensive understanding of their responsibilities. It also gave them a better understanding of how they were going to train their employees, what benefits and training programs they needed to provide, and how they were going to administer those training programs.
Over the past seven years, HRM has worked diligently to improve its management abilities. Employees not only feel more comfortable with the division because the name is familiar; they also know that the department provides consistent, well-trained and knowledgeable personnel who can help them succeed in the workplace. Training has also improved considerably. When the company first began, the training was often ad hoc and very piecemeal, with each employee learning only what was needed for his or her position.
Today, training is more focused. Each employee is trained on a particular program, usually based on his or her job title and industry. Training is also more targeted, because employees feel less likely to learn something that applies to their role without knowing the details of that role. This has resulted in a more thriving company, where employees know their specific roles and are able to use the training program to the best of their skill.
Although the HRM and Surgical division has received much needed attention in recent years, many employees wonder why it is receiving so much focus. According to company sources, the division handles nearly two-thirds of all surgeries performed at any hospital in the United States. The division also handles the hiring of employees and supervising their training. In addition to these tasks, the division works to ensure that all employees in the department are properly insured and that they receive all the appropriate medical benefits and training required.
HRM and Surgical employees are split into two separate departments: one that manage workers and the second that manages operations. Although some people question the need for these two separate departments, the company maintains that it is important to have separate sections in case one segment suffers a major loss. Why the split was necessary is a topic for another article.
