Managing human resources is not limited to Planning and allocation of resources but to provide with a direction, vision and goals. The aim of this report is to provide with recommendation pertaining to both the organizations in terms of Human Resource Management (Armstrong & Taylor, 2014).

There is no separate HRM department in the hospital. All the functions of a HR manager have to be taken by the CEO and his finance manager. This is causing disruption in concentrating on the job. Both the CEO and finance manager are unable to concentrate on their individual function. The middle level manager is not versed with the function of HRM. It is causing a lot of disturbances in the organization resulting in high level of staff grievances, absenteeism and turnover, and staff shortages.

The huge unnecessary expenditure can be reduced by appointing an HR to keep a regular and continuous check over the expenses (Chen & Huang, 2009).
The HR manager thereby helps in managing performance in different ways. The business performance can be improved by implementing an integrated performance management system. Work more efficiently and are given a fair reason for dismissal. The HR can work with management to make sure that whichever of these procedures are properly implemented (Bratton & Gold, 2012).

Employee legislations are changing constantly and it requires an individual to look after the changes. HR will ensure that the policies are very-well implemented and are communicated in a well defined way.
Helping in managing the staff in a fair manner
It is important for managing the organization in a well-defined way. HR has a responsibility to deal with the problem an organization is dealing with. A good manager has to deal with the multiple problems taking place in the Hospital. It’s the responsibility of the manager to deal with the problems occurring in the organization by designating an effective plan and procedure. This will help in managing the situation in the most appropriate way. The HR actions offer much desirable direction that will help an HR to interpret the result in a most efficient way (Heery & Noon, 2008).
This plan will help in measuring the outcome by applying the above mentioned HRM Model. This has been a significant challenge in stipulations of inconsistent application of HR policies and practices by middle level management. This has been the major reason for industrial disputation, high level of staff grievances, absenteeism and turnover, and employee’s shortages. All these policies and procedure will help in meeting the challenges has led to challenges for the quality of care and even serious accidents involving patients and staff (Marchington, et al 2016).

For both the organization sustainable development is important in order to manage competing demands. The organizations are facing issues in order to ensure longevity and competing demand. For ensuring organizational growth it is important to manage current employees. The efficiency of the human resource can only be managed if the HR manager takes due advantage. It will be disadvantageous for an organisation to survive and be successful in the long run without a proper HRM plan.
