Human Resources (HR) is one of the essential functions of a business. This department provides advocacy for employees, ensures each employee has access to and an understanding of the benefits available to them, and acts as a vital part of the executive team that makes decisions that affect employees. Because of those responsibilities, HR professionals must understand and act out the principles of Christ-like leadership in all of their interactions with the employees they serve. Christ-like (or servant) leadership is the embodiment of the way that Christ himself treated others. In business, servant leadership in human resources creates an environment where employees are empowered to be creative, ask questions, and do their best work, knowing they have the support of their leaders.
