Articles and Interviews about Human Resources

In the field of human resources (HR), professionals work in a department within an organization to not only deal with the recruiting, interviewing, and hiring of new staff but also handle employee relations, compensation and benefits, and the training of employees who work in the organization. To work in this field, one must obtain a bachelor’s degree in business or HR. Two common positions in this field are HR specialists and HR managers. In its website, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that “employment of human resources specialists is projected to grow 7 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations,” and “employment of human resources managers is projected to grow 9 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast the average for all occupations.”  So we interview HR professionals with a proven track record to provide useful information that will educate and empower others interested to work in this field.
