I agree with this statement. Human resources planning is the primary foundation of HRM for the reason that it ensures that applicants are an organizational fit with a company. An organization's effectiveness is predicated upon HRM's ability to adjust to "environmental changes, demographic shifts, technological changes" and increased global competitiveness. (Jackson and Schuler, 1990). "Human resources is part of the strategic business planning process." (Jackson et al, 1990). HR planning is a fundamental asset in organizations for policy and procedure development, regulatory compliancy, and merger and acquisitions. Every aspect of forward movement within an organization is conducted as a direct result of strategic planning. Advantages of employee referrals include: ? Knowledgeable and/or qualified candidates that are competent in task orientation and product development. ? Candidates who have seniority within the company. ? Cost effectiveness in the recruitment stages of employment. ? Produce top-performing employees ? Motivate employees to continue employment. ? Higher retention rates

Human Resources Management (HRM) is a versatile entity within an organization that must continuously adjust to periodic transitions throughout the lifespan of an organization. The role of HRM is to enable an organization to effectively compete within an ever changing industry to maintain a competitive advantage over competitors. They are responsible for developing highly trained professionals in an effort to formulate effective leaders of tomorrow. The role of HRM also includes maintaining compliancy with all statewide regulations and adjusting to any changes that may arise. For centuries, the standards of what is and is not morally or ethically acceptable within an organization has changed significantly, therefore it is solely up to the HRM professional to ensure that ethical standards are being met. For example, in the medical industry, the regulators of ethical practices within the medical facility would include the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), in which case HRM would make sure that all employees are in complete compliancy when it comes to protecting patient confidentiality and so forth and so on.
