This study clearly suggests that “The kinds of practices that HR develops and support have an impact on the bottom line,” Lawler says. “While HR doesn’t directly produce revenue, it doesn’t go out and find new business or open new markets; HR certainly improves the effectiveness of the organization, which allows the company to find new business or open new markets.”
