Professions: HR Managers
Was macht ein HR Manager?

The tasks in detail

In-company communication: this requires excellent writing and occasionally speaking skills, ensuring that all employees receive the communication meant for them, whether this details the upcoming Christmas party or use of the new CI (Corporate Identity).

Performance management: also known as appraisal, this can be one of the most ''feared'' aspects of the HR Manager's position, as employees do not always look forward to their annual appraisals. For the HR Manager this task includes assessment, performance development, training and feedback.

Team building: strengthening the company by building strong connections between employees through team work and team building, leading to loyalty and a strong sense of belonging to the company.

Employee empowerment: closely linked to team building, this involves guiding co-workers to make their own decisions and thereby their sense of ''ownership'' of the company - it's ''their'' company. Put simply, it means that employees can make certain decisions without consulting their superiors; which decisions they can make autonomously depends on company policy.

Salary & benefits: ensuring compensation is fair, that it is good enough to attract the best people and to keep them.

Coaching/mentoring: aiding management in attaining their goals and in improving on their performance, also known as leadership development.

Training: all aspects of in-company training, making sure that all employees are provided with the training they need to carry out their jobs effectively and efficiently to the best of their abilities.

Change management: making change successful, which means carrying it out in such a way that the employees are happy with the change, as well of course in ensuring that change benefits the company.

Organisational policy development/communication: The HR Manager is crucial in aiding management in implementing equal opportunity legislation, health and safety regulations, and other relevant guidelines. The HR Manager is also responsible for communicating these company policies to the employees.

Employee relations: the HR Manager is often the mediator or arbitrator when problems or disputes arise within the company. It is the HR Manager's responsibility to help any opposing parties to find a solution that is acceptable to all.

Compliance: connected to organisational policy development, compliance involves ensuring that any relevant legislation or regulation is adhered to.

To be successful in this job requires tact, empathy, the ability to make constructive criticism, skills in motivating others and a keen knowledge of human nature: an HR Manager's position is rather a complicated one!
