ABSTRACT
The author discusses the expectations in the function of a human resource (HR) staff through citing a study about the feedback of executives on their HR department. She states that most of what managers want from HR is called organizational development (OD), but managers had no idea what it was. She furthers that most of the negative comments in the study were about people issues and that most managers expect the HR to balance the needs of both the business and the workforce.
