As HR Manager, you look after the organisation’s most important assets: its staff. And we all know that without a happy workforce, a company soon has real problems meeting deadlines, forecasts and customer needs.
One of the key functions of a HR Manager is leading the company in developing, implementing, and auditing personnel policies and procedures. In addition you are responsible for making sure that your company meets all its compliance requirements, which means you must have a solid understanding of applicable state and federal employment legislation.
And then there’s making sure that the company’s employees receive adequate training on the company’s policies and procedures.
Overseeing the process of hiring employees is another important aspect of your job as HR Manager. You may be responsible for posting and approving advertisements, recruiting new employees, screening resumes and applications, setting up and conducting initial interviews, and conducting background and reference and even police checks. And you can often find yourself acting as an adviser to department managers to help them with making solid hiring decisions.
You must also ensure the health, safety, and well-being of company employees, so he or she must also investigate complaints made by employees. The HR Manager must also handle the often stressful tasks of handling disciplinary issues, and terminations.
While members of your department may be in charge of orientation of new employees, staff training and development programs and the administrative tasks such as maintaining employee files, monitoring timekeeping systems, and providing references for former employees – it is the Manager’s job to oversee everything and make sure it is done correctly.
