There are so many reasons that you may wish to work in the human resources department of a small business or large corporation. The main reason is just like technology employment; human resources employment jobs will be around as it is a very important part of running a business as this department does quite a bit for any business or corporation.
This department is in charge of several different aspects of any business and actually saves the owners and managers time and energy so they can perform their own duties.
For those that work in human resources, they are involved in a large array of different hats. Some employees only work in one section while others work in many aspects of the department. A few of the human resource tasks include designing new jobs, analyzing a business, planning the workforce, recruitment of suitable employees, selecting the right employees, training employments, developing new ways to properly handle tasks, managing the performance of not only the employees but of the entire company. Then there are other issues that are classified in human resources including compensation which involves so much more than employee wages such as benefits, stock dividends, sick leave pay, and more.
It may be hard to believe as you might think that a company would have an attorney to take care of the legal aspects of their business; however, it is also a huge part of human resources. The reason is that the human resource department must meet with employees, union, and ensure that all regulations and laws are met including those that work with international companies. The US has their own set of labor laws and regulations and so do other countries, so it can be tricky to ensure that every movement of the business is performing all labor laws within the laws of the countries they are located as well as other countries they do business with of any kind.
