A CAREER IN HUMAN RESOURCE
Answer the following questions,
- Do you like working with people
- Do you want to help people make their lives better?
- Are you a good communicator?
- Are you organised?
- Can you keep a secret?
- Do you want to be involved in the success of the company?
If you answered yes to the above, then a career in Human Resources (HR) could be right for you. For some HR might seem dead boring, simply filing paper and ticking boxes. For many years this is exactly what HR was, but things have changed. HR Managers now play an important role in moving a company forward, hiring the right people to get the job done and making sure that these people are well-trained, motivated and happy.
Business leaders have finally recognised that people are the most important part of a business and that successful businesses are built on good staff, strong relationships and an excellent company culture. It is the role of the HR Manager to ensure that all this is taking place successfully. The HR Manager needs to find the balance between what’s good for both company and its employees. Today, HR Managers are involved with the following:
- Interviewing and hiring staff
- Training managers on how to be leaders
- Staff training and skill development
- Staff bonuses and reward programmes
- Enforcing company policies such as sick leave or salary increases
- Creating new company policies
- Handling disciplinary issues
- Educating the company on labour law and what it can and can’t do
- Moving the company forward
- Developing strategy and talent.
