Speaker Notes: Hello! My name is Sarah Guel and this is my presentation on a look into the career of a Human Resource Manager.
Speaker Notes: Human Resource Management or HRM for short , can be defined as the management of employees within the company. There are three major areas of Management within the HRM division; Staffing which is the selection and training of individuals for specific job functions, and charging them with the associated responsibilities. Employee Compensation which ensure each employee receives his or her benefits, earned bonuses or assisting them with legal actions. and Defining and Designing work which means the manager defines the set schedules or procedures that must take place and how to run the companies standard operating procedures. The main goal for all these areas is to ensure quality and productivity of the employees.
Speakers Notes: The history of Human Resources dates back to 1883. Industrial Welfare was the first form of Human Resources. Owners of mines wanted to insure that their employees were working in safe conditions. During World War I, Mary Wood was asked to start recruiting young women for personal development to ensure that the country ran as smoothly as possible while their men were off fighting in the war. World War II is where the focus of training, selection, and recruiting became a main goal for businesses.
Speaker’s Notes: The job outlook looks as average as any other job today. There is a projected growth of 13% from 2010 to 2020. Growth will mainly rely on the performance of the individual company and how many employees they wish to hire. The possible downside to the growth of this career would be computers. Computerizing the main jobs of a Human Resource Manager has cut the need for more employees. The need for 24 hour service may make this statement null and void in the future. With such a great demand growth is bound to happen regardless.
Speakers Notes: The lowest form of degree you can achieve and still seek a career in HRM is a four year Bachelor’s Degree. You may complete your degree in either Human Resources or Business Administration. A Masters of Business Administration may also be completed and make you more desirable for employers. Certificates such as the Professional in Human Resources and the Global Professional in Human Resources will help you stand out against your competitors when seeking a job.
Speaker’s Notes: The daily duties of a Human Resource Manager are, but not limited, to Planning and Coordinating the work force, link organizations management with their employees, by handling questions and resolving work related problems. Advising managers on organizational policies, and overseeing the recruitment, interview, selection, and hiring process, and handling staffing issues such as firing employees and directing disciplinary procedures.
Many employers today are look for possible candidates with the following skills. Decision-making skills which refers to being able to balance the strengths and weaknesses of different options and decide the best course of action. Many of their decisions have a significant impact on workers or operations, such as deciding whether to fire an employee. Interpersonal Skills-Human resources managers need strong interpersonal skills because they regularly interact with people. They often collaborate on teams and must develop positive working relationships with their colleagues. Managerial Skills- which refers to being able to direct a staff and oversee the operations of their department. They must coordinate work activities and ensure that workers in the department complete their duties and fulfill their responsibilities. Organizational Skills-Organizational skills are essential for human resources managers. They must be able to manage several projects at once and prioritize tasks. And Speaking Skills- Human resources managers rely on speaking skills to give presentations and direct their staff. They must clearly communicate information and instructions to their staff and other employees.
Speaker’s Notes: There are many key qualities that employers are looking for in a well equipped employee and to achieve ultimate success in their career. Integrity, which requires being honest and ethical.Stress tolerance which requires accepting criticism and dealing calmly and effectively with high stress situations. leadership which requires a willingness to lead, take charge, and offer opinions and direction.dependability, which requires being reliable, responsible, and dependable, and fulfilling obligations.cooperation, which requires being pleasant with others on the job and displaying a good-natured, cooperative attitude. self control, which requires maintaining composure, keeping emotions in check, controlling anger, and avoiding aggressive behavior, even in very difficult situations. And flexibility which requires being open to change (positive or negative) and to considere variety in the workplace.
Speaker’s Notes: The graph shown here is an illustration of the main industries hiring Human Resource Managers. These organizations provide an excellent work environment by allowing minimal travel time, a 40-hour work week, and working indoors with minimal lifting or carrying.
Speaker’s Notes: This illustration shows the average wages compared to other management occupations as well as all other occupations. During 2010 the average wage for a Human Resource Manager was $99,180. The top ten percent earned an average of $166,400 and the bottom ten percent earned $61,560. These salaries far surpass the average salary of an employee today.
Speaker’s Notes: Businesses today are realizing that their “one size fits all” approach to benefits is not working for all employees and are switching to a new approach where their employers pick and choose the best benefits that fit their lifestyle. Most benefits that are covered in this area would be medical, dental, eye, and retirement. Many companies are now offering paid time off and holiday leave as well as 401 (k) and recruitment bonuses.
Speaker’s Notes: In conclusion the field of Human Resource Management is a great career to invest your time into. It offers a higher than normal salary, there is projected growth, and always room for advancement granted you give your time and effort to prove so. The work environment is suitable for most anyone with minimal outdoor exposure and minimal travel. Benefits are also the most desirable when searching for a career. When choosing a company make sure they meet your needs. Thank you, and I hope you have enjoyed my presentation on the career filed of a Human Resource Manager.
