wch r d Administrative & strategic function of HR???? well, i m supposed to cover all the functions of HR.
Dear Jaya,

Before answering to your query, you need to understand the transition stages of HR

Thirty years ago, we had the “personnel department.” It took care of pretty much everything relating to people in the workplace. Then about twenty years ago we had split – techo-terms became the rage (remember “domestic engineers?) and we realized that we were dealing “human resources,” and so a new department was born. But over the past fifteen-to-twenty years, HR has gone through another split: Human Resource Management, and Human Resource Development.

Yes, the two have a bit of overlap, but agreement among experts in the field is that the two branches of HR can help an organization accomplish its strategic goals – if only top management would let them.

Human Resource Management is commonplace in most larger companies. According to Richard Chang, author of The Passion Plan at Work, HRM focuses mainly on HR Research and Information Systems, Union/Labor Relations, Employee Assistance, and Employee Compensation/Benefits.

Human Resource Development, according to Chang, includes Career Development (helping individuals align their career planning), Organizational Development (helping groups initiate and manage change), and Training and Development (designing / developing, and delivering training to ensure people are equipped to do their jobs).

Where the two tend to overlap are Selection and Staffing, Organizational/Job Design, Human Resource Planning, and Performance Management System.

I think now you can differentiate between Strategic HR and administrative HR.
