A personnel manager - also known as a human resources (HR) manager - performs a wide variety of tasks related to personnel management, including reviewing employee applications to determine if further action should be taken, performing interviews, and hiring qualified individuals. In some companies, negotiating salaries with new employees is part of the personnel manager's job. They may also analyze which positions in the company require new employees, search for talent, and manage employee files to ensure that they meet all performance goals. When employees need to be terminated, the personnel manager might be in charge of delivering the news to the employee and handling the appropriate paperwork.
