每个人力资源团队都面临几个需要解决的问题，以确保其组织的正常运作。同样，英国的人力资源团队也面临一些需要注意的问题。首要的问题是保留。由于有很多其他公司有吸引力的优惠，因此人力资源部门最需要维护组织中有才能的员工。为了留住人才，公司需要平衡公司文化，薪酬和激励机制（Ashe et al，2010）。第二个挑战是招聘。在合适的时间找到合适的人是任何人力资源团队面临的最大挑战。从市场上的大量人才中汲取少数优秀人才是一项艰巨的工作。第三个问题是关于生产力。人力资源部有责任激励和鼓励具有各种激励措施和职业发展机会的员工尽其所能，为组织创造生产性资产。还有一些其他问题需要解决，如培训，员工的健康和安全，立法，纪律，赔偿等。

Current issues in HRM which need to be addressed
Every HR team faces several issues which need to be addressed for proper functioning of their organization. Similarly, the HR teams in UK too face some issues problems which need to be taken care. The first and foremost issue is with respect to retention. It is the toughest job of an HR to maintain the talented employees within the organization as there are so many other companies with attractive offers. In order to retain a talent, the company needs to strike a balance company culture, compensation and incentives (Ashe et al, 2010). The second challenge is recruitment. To get a right person at the right time is the biggest challenge for any HR team. It is a tough job to get few best talents out of a large pool of talents available in market. The third issue is with respect to the productivity. It is the duty of HR to motivate and encourage the employees with various incentives and career growth opportunities to give their best and be a productive asset for the organization. There are several other issues which need to be addressed like training, health and safety of the employees, legislation, discipline, compensation etc.
From the essay above it is clear that a lot has been done to remove the gender discrimination at the work places. The European Union has taken many important steps to eliminate gender discrimination at the work places. Equal pay Act and Equality Act are the two acts which played a very important role in bringing men and women at same platform during at workplaces in different time periods (Colgan, 2011). HRM has got a significant role to play in eradicating this gap and also it has got many other issues to address like retention, recruitment, compensation etc.
