  • Mohamed Rashid Maldives Human Resource Management is a crucial area that gives major impact to the organizations performance. Often times managing human resources become challenging when we ask the employee to perform the task without looking in to employees condition on executing the work. It is the employee who face the customer and perform services, hence, the Employee's mood, psychological status and job satisfaction makes the organization and services customer satisfied. Often times we believe that "No employee should bring personal stress to office and should not take Office Stress to home". HOW PRACTICAL CAN THIS BE? I believe we being human-beings, its impossible to switch of our mood and stress when ever we want. Hence, its only the employee's performing status that matters and that can be improved only by supporting and addressing employee's personal and other related issues. It is a Win-Win for both organization and employee. Making the maximum use of right talent of the employee and improving the right area of the organization.
