Human Resources (HR) is geared primarily to recruit qualified and suitable staff and develop policies and measures for their professional satisfaction, career growth and retention. For this, HR proactively prepares and implements systems hinged on merit-based recruitment, equitable policies for competitive compensation packages and a need-based skill enhancement programme to further improve the knowledge base of staff and provide them with professional development opportunities.
