Human resources is the department that keeps a company running, and makes sure that the needs of employees are met. Without HR, such basic functions as morale, medical insurance and safety regulations might not receive the proper level of attention.

 


HR Manager

The HR manager is responsible for issues that directly affect all employees, including job satisfaction, morale, safety, and education and training. He or she is responsible for hiring and orienting new employees, and must stay on top of policies and procedures. The HR manager must have good people and leadership skills, as well as excellent communication and organizational abilities.


Labor Specialist

This person is responsible for making sure the company complies with all regulations and activities related to employee policies, OSHA regulations, payroll and union issues. The labor specialist must have strong interpersonal skills and knowledge of legal issues. He or she must also be a good organizer and an excellent communicator.
Benefits Specialist

This person develops and manages benefits for the company's employees. Such benefits include health and dental insurance, disability insurance, pension plans and 401ks, and even such extras as stock options. The benefits specialist must have strong legal and organizational skills, and must be a good communicator, a caring listener, and a skilled team-builder.
