Internal Environment

The internal environment of HRM consists of unions, organizational culture and conflict, professional bodies, organizational objectives, policies etc. These forces have profound influence on HRM.
 

Unions

 
Trade unions are formed to safeguard the interest of its members. A registered trade union is one which is registered under the Trade Union Act and enjoys certain rights, privileges and also has duties. It has duties to its members as well as the management. Management, at least enlightened management, will see HR activities like recruitment, selection, training, compensation, industrial relations and separations are carried out in consultation with trade union leaders.
 
The National Commission on Labour (NCL) has made valuable suggestions to trade unions to undertake the following activities:

1. Secure fair wages for the workers;

2. Safeguard security of tenure and better job conditions;

3. Enlarge promotional and training opportunities

4. Provide for educational, cultural and recreation facilities

5. Cooperate in and facilitate technological advances;

6. Promote individual and group welfare;

7. Promote national integration ; and

8. Instill a sense of responsibility among members towards industry and society.

Organizational Culture and Conflicts

 
Just like individuals having and cherishing their culture, organizations also have cultures. Each organization has its own culture that distinguishes one organization from another. Culture may be stated as sharing some core values or beliefs by the members of the organization.
 
The culture of an organization is like the preserved culture of a family, the tradition of a group or race. Culture identifies the group and the group cherishes it. Some organizations are highly respected for the culture it has preserved and any deviation may even be resented by its customers and the general public as well.
 
HRM has the delicate but important role of preserving and nurturing the organizational culture. Conflict usually surfaces because of dualities such as personal goal as against organizational goal, discipline as against autonomy, right as against duties etc. Such conflicts have their bearing on HR activities in an organization.

Professional Bodies

 
Professional bodies have a role to play in maintaining proper internal environment. Chartered Accountants, doctors, lawyers etc., have professional bodies which regulate and maintain the dignity of their profession. Erring members can be punished by the professional body and they lay down rules and procedures for good conduct and ethics. So also The National Institute of Personnel Management advices and regulates HRM activities.
