ABSTRACT
The article discusses connections between human resources departments, corporate cultures, professional relationships, and helping behavior. An argument is presented that properly implemented human resources policies help to motivate and sustain helping behavior by employees. This can affect professional relationships and organizational effectiveness. Examples of three standard human resources systems are presented, and their impact is analyzed in terms of the dynamics of helping behavior, and the expectations which surround it.
