Michael’s Answer

The HR umbrella is enormous. An HR professional can and will be involved in multiple facits of any organization. Some of the most basic practices that I encountered when I supported a business area in the HR field included the following:
Onboarding - hiring, drug testing, background, data entry
Benefits
Complience training - filing and updating profiles to support business changes and annual training
Enforcing company policies and practices
Mediation - peer to peer / leader to team member - Confirm/Deny separation
Investigate
Colaborate with team members at every level of the organization - depending on how many HR professions in the space
Staffing / Support
So much more

Laura’s Answer

Hi Zephyrus! Pretty simple answer but really anything and everything related to the employee experience/people journey. The employees are HR's clients so we must ensure that we consistently provide a welcoming environment, positive attitude, and customer-focused mentality.

Amy’s Answer

In my experience, individuals often approach HR for a wide range of concerns. It's beneficial to be acquainted with other departments and their functions, as this allows you to kindly guide people towards the right person to address their questions, such as technology or policy-related inquiries. Depending on the size of the HR department within your organization, you might be asked about various topics, including organizational structure, salary, hiring, disciplinary actions, and policies, among others.

Regina (R.Y.)’s Answer

People will ask you some of everything, and questioning will typically begin with one of the 5 Ws (plus H):
WHO can tell me/WHO ARE YOU to tell me…?
WHAT is this/does this mean…?
WHERE is my…?
WHEN will XYZ be done…?
WHY isn’t XYZ ready…?
WHY do I have have to?
HOW do I…?
People need their HR professionals in the organization to know the answers or where to get the answers. If you, as the HR pro does not know the answer, then please know the name or contact info for the person who does know.
Prepare by being patient with yourself (learn what you can from training and literature, but pace yourself). Drink lots of water. Work on building relationships, so that you can expand your own breadth of knowledge, and expand your network of knowledgeable people.

Nadine’s Answer

HR plays a critical role in the workspace. HR is needed to promote a supportive work environment, discuss or settle issues or disputes at work, and talk about benefits and compensation just to name a few.

Tanya’s Answer

Hi there,

This is great question as there are so many different types of questions you can be asked as an HR Manager depending on the type of organization you work for and the number of employees in the workplace.

As an HR Manager and in addition to all other comments in this feed, you may be asked to provide support to the business to identify different ways to retain high performers as well as ways to help address performance concerns in the workplace.

One thing that helped me be successful as an HR professional was completing the education needed to get my HR Certification (PHR). SHRM also has a certification program as well and is a great resource to learn more about the HR profession.

I hope that helps!

Guillermo’s Answer

I am not a Human resource professional, but I have used their guidance more than once. They will answer any question that employees may have about work benefits that you could get such as meal vouchers, over time payment, etc. Also, they will need to counsel in job discussions. and provide help when employees are passing through hard times.
