It is responsible for bringing people in organizations, helping them perform their work, compensating them for their work and solving work and social problems that arise.
Managing people is the most complicated task in Higher Learning Institutions because, people are human beings with emotions, feelings, differences from their background, culture, needs, thinking, behaviors, experience and qualification. Consequently, to be successful, the HRM department in TEAU sets the following objectives to achieve while managing academic and administrative Manpower:
The success of organizations increasingly depends on people-embodied know-how: the knowledge, skill, and abilities imbedded in an organization’s members. This knowledge base is the foundation of an organization’ core competencies (integrated knowledge sets within an organization that distinguish it from its competitors and deliver value to customers). HRM plays important role in creating organizations and helping them survive. Our world is an organizational world. We are surrounded by organizations and we participate in them as members, employees, customers, and clients. Most of our life is spent in organization, and they supply the goods and services on which we depend to live. Organizations on the other hand depend on people, and without people, they would disappear.

It is also a violation of University policy to retaliate against any individual for filing a complaint of discrimination or for cooperating in an investigation of alleged discrimination (protected activity). Unlawful discrimination has no place at the University and offends the University’s core values which includes a commitment to equal opportunity and inclusion.
