Human resource and Finance
The Human Resource Department recruits in two different ways, 1. Internal recruitment This refers to the filling of job vacancies from within the business, where existing employees are selected rather than someone from outside. A business might decide that it already has the right people with the right skills to do job, particularly if its training and development programme has been affected. 2. External recruitment This refers to the filling of job vacancies from outside the business.
Most business engages in external recruitment regularly, particularly those that are growing strongly, or that operate in industries with higher staff turnover.

Training The Human resource department is also responsible for training the employees.

Training involves guiding or teaching someone to do something by providing them with a planned programme of exercises and activities. Training develops the skill and knowledge of employees to help them to do the employee’s jobs better, and prepares them for more demanding job in the future. Induction training is given to new employees. Its aim is to familiarize them with the organization and its rules. It can also be used to show the new employee particular job skills. Retraining is done because as time moves on, some jobs change or disappear. As a result the employees who previously did these jobs may need to retrain to do something else.
