What does human resources do?

Well, that is the loaded question of the day! If you ask us here at Flex HR, we say that we the Human Resources (HR) experts are the glue that holds an organization together.

The pandemic has unquestionably strained employers and HR professionals to alter how they operate and added means to communicate. And although more and more individuals have the opportunity to become vaccinated, most organizations do not see the workplace going back to normal any time soon.
