Hmmm... I would reply how does your passion and things that matter to you brings you to fins the job you are made for !
HR is a great field with so many different jobs you can learn from! I would recommend to get in touch with professional from the field on Linked In or in your city to understand more about their jobs, constraints etc.. Good luck!

HR also partners across other areas of the business, including Finance, Communications, business leadership and and others. It really does offer the opportunity to see and learn so much.
I agree with the recommendation above to chat with those in the field and find out what drew them to HR, and what keeps them here.
To answer your question about how it affects- an organisation cannot run with disengaged, demotivated and low performing individuals. Along with business, HR's job is to ensure that people give their best and grow individually.
At a broader level, HR professionals enable the organisations to run smoothly with its people. Now that can be done by recruiting, engagement, training, managing performance, compensation, compliance etc. And like all other fields, HR strategy is aligned with business strategy - which forms the base for all HR programs/ initiatives.
