What does a human resource manager do?

Human resources managers plan, coordinate, and direct the administrative functions of an organization. They oversee the recruiting, interviewing, and hiring of new staff; consult with top executives on strategic planning; and serve as a link between an organization’s management and its employees.

  • Like every manager, an HR Manager plans, organizes, directs, staffs, and coordinates the administrative functions in any organization.

  • Human resources managers can be found in almost any business. They work in offices, and the majority of them work full-time during business hours.

  • Some people travel to attend professional meetings or to find new job opportunities.

  • To become a human resources manager, candidates often need a mix of education and several years of relevant job experience.

Although a bachelor’s degree is normally required, some occupations demand a master’s degree. From 2020 to 2030, the employment of human resources managers is expected to expand at a rate of 9%, which is approximately average for all occupations.

On average, 14,800 opportunities for human resources managers are expected per year during the next ten years. Many of those opportunities are projected to arise as a result of the need to replace workers who change jobs or retire.
