Many of us work for a company that has a human resources department. Often, however, we have limited contact with them. We see them when we are hired and fill out our paperwork. We deal with them whenever we change our benefits, when we submit our annual reviews, and for our end-of-year tax statements. Some of us go through HR for payroll and vacation requests. And generally, leaving the company involves one last meeting. However, human resources can often provide an employee with much more.
