Job Description for Consultant, Human Resources (HR)

Human resources is the department within a company that handles employees' hiring, training, questions, and issues. A human resources consultant typically is hired to find ways to improve relationships between the business and employee, increase retention, and grow overall staff satisfaction.

Human resource consultants may perform a variety of duties ranging from establishing recruiting practices to analyzing hiring procedures to producing systems that track employee performance. Human resource consultants often assist managers with the hiring process, training them to create effective, targeted job ads and develop a screening system for potential employees. They often guide managers through the interview process, ensuring that the final candidate is an excellent fit for the position.

Employee evaluations and assessments are important for the human resources department, since they can help managers determine which employees should get bonuses, promotions, or raises and who is not meeting expectations. Human resource consultants often assist in developing a formal, unbiased evaluation system to identify individual employees' strengths, weaknesses, and performance. Companies often hire outside human resource consultants to help establish guidelines in areas such as work safety, fair treatment, pay, and benefits packages.

Human resources consultants typically need extensive experience in human resources, preferably in a consulting role. They must have strong analytical and interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to present proposed changes effectively to the human resources department and management.
