Q: What is it like working as a Human Resources (HR) Director?

February 2016
"Tolerance."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
Take a deep breath before taking action and give yourself permission to think through the problem.
March 2016
"HR is ever changing."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
Ensure you make your HR career a "profession." Join organizations that reflect your career track, and volunteer. Strive to make a positive difference in your job, your profession, and in your community.
March 2016
"Never Assume."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
Like a lawyer, don't allow yourself to be surprised. Know all aspects of your project or what you are working on so you are not caught off guard. Never assume that people are taking care of something or doing what you THINK they should be doing. Hard facts and information take you further to where you want to go. Research, research, and do more research.
March 2016
"Servant Leadership."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
Stay close to the business. Pay attention to the culture. Do as much as you can to remove HR obstacles and bureaucracy from managers and employees. Make sure that your HRIS system works for the business, not the other way around. Lead by serving, not by imposing directives.
April 2016
"Employment Law."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
Need to be well versed in strategic planning and employment law.
April 2016
"How stressful it would be."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
One day at a time.
April 2016
"Never stop learning."
Human Resources (HR) Director:
Block time each week to read the email updates and HR magazines you received to keep on top of the laws and best practices.
