In any corporate business industry, or a public or government enterprise, one common and most important resource any professional deals with is the human resource. Profits drive organisations and people are the drivers of organisational performance and development,which leads to increased returns for any organisation. To drive people effectively towards their goals and objectives, understanding human psychology is a prerequisite; in fact HR and Psychology are the inseparable twins which help us to appreciate more intently the complex human behavior which drives organisational performance.
Psychology comes from the ancient Greek word ‘psyche’, meaning soul and ‘logos’, meaning study of human mind and behavior. Psychology determines human behavior and that is very critical in the organisational behavior context to achieve better and enhanced organisational performance. Organisations strive and thrive for better performance, which primarily is achievable through its people only. The organisation HR functions have to leverage maximum potential out of their people and keep them motivated to help them deliver to their optimum output. The organisational psychologists have the role of applying principles of psychology to human resources to help them improve their efficiency. The two roles complement each other, since understanding human behavior and its effective application in an organisational context is what drives organisational performance.
Every organisation in the world today requires talent and it has to provide a conducive culture and atmosphere for people to express themselves fully. Dr. Edward Deming, the quality guru famously said that human errors and human behaviour is a manifestation of the organisational management psychology and its processes. The same person can achieve a very high level of performance and change his/ her behaviour if we provide the right working environment for people. Thus to understand human resource, we first have to understand human behaviour and that is where a blend of psychology with organisational human resource functions acts as a force multiplier, and creates that synergy for high level organisational performance.
