Human Resource Managers manage and coordinate the recruitment, retention and general welfare of staff within an
organization. They support employees, monitor their performance and develop strategies to improve their
motivation and effectiveness in the workplace.
Human Resource (HR) Managers ensure employees receive the proper compensation and benefits, oversee
workplace safety, direct the maintenance of employee records, and manage overall employee hiring, evaluation and
labor relations. Human resource managers may also develop company standards and policies that govern workplace
practices. This may include policy around recruitment and termination processes, leave entitlements, professional
development, and anti-discrimination principles.
Human Resource Managers make sure that their team hires the best and brightest people possible, encouraging and
motivating HR staff, and working with employees to make sure they are motivated to work hard and feel safe.
Human Resources Managers typically work in an office setting. The workload will vary depending on when the fiscal
year ends or if there are any major upheavals or changes within the company. While performing the duties of this
job, the employee is occasionally exposed to moving mechanical parts and vehicles. The noise level in the work
environment is usually quiet to moderate.
