HRM is the devolution of many aspects of the management of people of different
specialization and directing their specialty directly to the line of management within the
organization. HRM consist of offering; equal job opportunities and compliance, carrying out job
analysis, recruiting, selecting, motivating and retention of the employees, carrying out human
resource planning, performance evaluation and compensation, training and development, labor
relationship, safety, health and wellness. Always the effective HRM focuses on the activities of
the business rather than the record keeping, and written procedures of the business through the
use of the rules and policies that are outlined to help in the running of the organization and offers
solutions to the realized problem. This paper will look at the implication that the customers’
activities have caused to the HRM.
Customers demand for the compensation due to fail or accident caused by the goods or
services offered by the organization (Halbesleben & Stoutner, 2013). . Different countries have
different policies that are outlined on the compensation and this has led to the daily adjustment of
the HRM objectives and goals which has led to the problem towards achieving the goals of the
organization. The HRM must always outline the policies in line with the goals of the
organization and these compensation challenges may destabilize the organization especially
where the goods are exported to different countries.
Most customers have realized the importance of the analyzing the company’s ethical
practices, the environmental issues of the organization, the level and quality of the products
offered and this has greatly affected the demand for the goods and services. HRM must therefore
analyses these environmental issues and formulate the ways to develop good environment within
the organization, recruit workers with new skills to maintain the good image of the business and
produce of high quality to meet the customer’s need (Kalpina, Sania, & Javed, 2013). This will
change the system of the HRM operation and HRM will have to have frequent check on the
competence of the employees and recruit where appropriate.
Customers have increased their involvement in the business approach i.e. establishing a
balanced stakeholder orientation. Customers have different approach towards obtaining the
goods they want; other may have a self-centered approach where they purchase goods without
involving in any communication with the stakeholder employees (Ullah, & Yasmin, 2014).
Others may carry out operations like boycotting purchase and even spreading the worst
information to other buyers. HRM therefore must change their operation and carry out daily
training of the employees and even evaluate them on daily basis.
Customer base line orientation of the company is a result of the relationships that takes
place during work related interactions (Croitor, 2012). The initial approach of the customers
towards the company has changed the environment and most of the organization is opting for the
potential customers. Due to this the initial relation with the customer tends to bring more
customers and HRM must ensure quality production and daily training of the working personnel
on how to make customers have good ethical relationship with the organization to enable the
organization to maintain its customers and bring in more to the organization or business (Feng,
T., Wang, D, Prajogo, 2014).
HRM should therefore study frequently the behavior and changes of the customer needs
and change their policies and operation as per the change realized. HRM should realize that they
are responsible for the management and contagious transformation, shaping processes and
cultures that together improve the quality and the capacity of the organization.
