Human Resource Services Practice Domain
Our knowledge base of professional services focused on improving the business performance of organizations through issues around people. Historically, Human Resources has been focused on the roles of control and compliance: operational and administrative tasks such as payroll and benefits, legal compliance, recruiting, on-boarding, and training. All of these activities continue to be important management tasks, but effective Human Resources today is more about the strategic alignment people issues to organizational objectives.
HR compliance is a process. Based on appropriate federal, state, and local laws, it is the defining proper individual and group behaviors, and assuring that laws and policies are understood and followed. Compliance also means the HR department and the organization's managers communicate these policies to employees, along with expectations for adherence and the consequences for non- adherence. The latter requires specific investigative and punishment procedures. Effective HR compliance programs need to be integrated into business strategies, starting at the top and trickles down to all levels. Everyone in the company understands Personnel Policies & Procedures, Employee Law, and the application of Corporate Values.

Capital strategy determines the best kind of capital to accept from the best source at the best time and valuation. This decision occurs within the larger economic timing of hype, boom, bust, stagnation, and recovery.
6.2 Shareholder Strategy
The ability to generate consistently superior total shareholder returns over time is the best single measurement of corporate management performance. The increase in shareholder value is achieved through the pursuit of two separate but related activities: financing the business at the lowest sustainable after-tax cost, and allocating capital resources to investments that promise the highest risk- adjusted returns to investors.
