Human resources (HR) development managers evaluate policies relating to personnel management and determine the effects of these policies on roles and operations within the company. Metrics may be used to make objective evaluations, and changes to rules may be implemented if deemed necessary. These changes may involve coordination with other parties, such as upper management and HR employees.
HR development managers should help other managers to improve employee relations, and training may be provided to facilitate this. They must be familiar with human resources compliance and legal matters in order to implement and enforce this knowledge, and plans regarding the future of the HR department and its policies should also be made and overseen in this position. These managers are usually responsible for hiring and maintaining staff based on talent in the human resources department, and it's also important to monitor these employees to ensure that they are working in a satisfactory manner.
This work is usually done during regular office hours, and some travel to various branches of the company may also be necessary. A bachelor's degree or higher in a human resources-related field is generally required for this advanced position, and many years of work experience in human resources may also be required.
