Ten HR Positions Expected to Experience Growth Through 2016
Higher level executives don’t necessarily have the luxury or the opportunity of being able to communicate directly and consistently with employees. They are rarely able to develop and maintain close relationships with any of their employees, with the exception of those that work closest with them. Enter the Human Resources professional, the liaison between employees and executives, and in many cases the sounding board for both employee and executive complaints and feedback. Besides handling such tasks as hiring, benefits, and payroll, Human Resources professionals also play an integral part in helping executives understand the needs of their employees and how to optimize employee performance. The value of the HR professional has not gone unnoticed, as both salaries and jobs are expected to grow in HR over the next ten years. As such, competition for the best HR positions is also likely to increase, so HR professionals looking to advance must consistently outperform the competition. This list of ten HR positions that are expected to experience job growth (and their salaries) can help you decide the best HR position for you and what you may need to get that position.
