Dear All,
One thing we all need to know is that Admin is part of Hr Department. HR is wide field where many more fields like T&D, Performance Management, Recruitment etc comes under it and Admin is one of compulsory sub department of HR. All departmental Objectives and policies are designed by HR and there execution is implemented through Admin where Admin is responsible for employees file management system, Time & Attendance System etc.

Dear Meenakshi,
Admin & HR both are different dept. and have different roles. In some organizations (specially in small size), both are combined, where Admin comes under HR dept.
In big organizations where it is difficult to handle all Admin function by HR bifurcation is done as Admin & Facilities and they act as an independent dept. and HR is separate function.
Every organization changes the structure as per their requirements.

Hr & Admin both are different dept with different roll & resposibility.
Hr & Admin can not be said as equivalent.
Hr has a very vast role & resposibility of organisation where production & growth are effected.
Admin has a fixed & formatted role & resposibilities of organisation, Admin. person has to only initiate the time bouind activities where production & growth can not be effected.

Dear All,

it was interesting reading your ideas on HR and Admin. well I feel in India we are still far behind to understand what HR actually is? It is very different to what we all working in Indian MNC's. for us HR is shear a division which is a puppet in hand of management and is blindly following what Management has to say. It can be moulded time to time and as per requirement of the Company. at times we also can find a overlapping between HR and Admin and it is difficult to segregate.

But when we talk of HR in real sense, it is the integral division of any comapny as they are the stategic planner, they are one who are responsible for formulating policies and implementing it, they are the representative of employees to employers and vice versa. while admin is the division which will look after the basic daily working of the organization and helping the laid policies to be implemented well across the company.

Every division has their own importance and all are independent and dependent at the same time..

hr &admin are 2 legs of the organisation. the main view is without HR the organistion cannot work and without admin there is no organisation(i mean to say that there no finance, no operations, no quality management and no purchase.

In a organisation all the departments are inter linked, all departments are customers to each other. It is a healthy vendor-Customer relationship between the departments which makes organisation to grow. Similarly HR & Admin. are interdependent on each other
HR plays a strategic role in holistic growth of the business whereas Administration focuses on day today operations to support the smooth run of the plant to support the business.

Meenakshi first you need to brief any background that you came across about such a question.
Because while studying either Diploma / Degree you have to study and understand HR / Admin / IR
Now a days in many more organisation these are seperate 3 departments but linking with each other
whereas in few organisations HR person has to look after all these three function.
From Activity point of view you can not mix them each other. Admin activity is say
Canteen Administration / Security Administration / Water Administration etc.
HR talks about - to enhance the skill / knowledge / upgradation of employees through training and development / competency mapping etc.
