It is evident that most of the problems in an organization are human since human being is dynamic and complex. It is a fact that Human Resources (HR) dynamics prevalent in Indian organizations are different from those in other parts of the globe. But in therecent past, a new orientation is taking place in the Indian organizations because of the global impact on business.HRM encompasses those activities designed to provide, motivate and coordinate the human resources of an organization. The human resources of an organization represent its largest investment. In fact, the government report shows that approximately 73 per cent of the national income is used to compensate its employees, in addition to wages and salaries. The human beings are dynamic and flexible but at the same time, they are also conforming and rigid, sometimes unpredictable. In spite of all this, they are an asset, and never a liability. There is necessity of understanding human beings from variety of perceptivities, due tothe social, political and economic changes throughout the world. The internationalization of productive processes has raised new problems of control, motivation and appraisal across economic and cultural boundaries. The dimensions of quality of work life are also facing a global transition.
