In our combined 21years of working in Human Resource Management, we are constantly met by the misconception of what we do. HRM (as it is commonly known) has often been reduced to just job recruitment, and that is just one facet of this multifaceted discipline.

We often face the challenge of educating people that we can do more than just recruit talent; what we try and tell our clients, is that; it is just as important to manage the talent as to have it. We have seen that companies that do not have any sort of HR management often face issues of high employee turnover because they lack the policies and procedures that allow for talent to be content in the work place or leave in an organized manner that does not affect the efficiency of the organization. What a lot of people do not take notice of; is that it is costly and inefficient to keep re-training employees. What Right Seat aims to do, is to help establish frameworks that allow the smooth transition of employees leaving and coming in, as well as ensuring that employees leave better than when they came in.

With all that we have said, one begins to ask, what is human resource management? Well, HRM can be defined as, ‘formal systems devised for the management of people within an organization. The responsibilities of a human resource manager fall into three major areas: staffing, employee compensation and benefits, and defining/designing work.’ (According to

Let us break it down, we ensure that the right talent is hired for the right job, we ensure that they are well remunerated based on their: talent, experience, market salary standards and the tasks, and most importantly we assist in setting your job requirements to ensure that your tasks are aligned with the growth and efficiency of the company and be a reference of which you can be fairly judged on (appraisals).

HR is a highly important component to the full functioning of a company. However, in companies that are small in terms of size of employees, you can have a HR consulting firm as your virtual HR Manager. Smaller enterprises are trying to run efficiently whilst keeping the overhead costs low; we completely understand that not only as a HR firm but also a new company. HR consulting firms are more cost friendly and they get the work done! We can take over your HR management, from setting up HR manuals and policies to payroll, and everything in between. We will be able to help guide the company on how to best manage their work force and also help the work force best align their skills for the company.

As Right Seat, we want to change the perception people have of HR management and what it entails, as well as educate all our readers more on the developments within HR and enhance their knowledge on it. This is the first of our many blog posts and we will be uploading one every end of month, fill free to comment and ask questions. We will be more than happy to answer!

Till the next post…
