Finding qualified employees and keeping them is among the most important jobs for companies reaching for success. The skills necessary for this task are gained not only through experience on the job, but from extensive training as a certified human resource manager.
Who They Are
As a company grows, the need for certified human resource managers to find, train, and keep employees is rapidly expanding. While most companies would rather hire certified human resource managers who are already aware of their company’s corporate culture, hiring from within is not always possible. There are a number of educational programs designed to provide interested HR professionals with the training and certification needed to work as certified human resource managers.
What They Do
For smaller companies a certified human resource manager directs most human resource tasks. For larger corporations though, a human resource department manages the tasks. A certified human resource manager is trained to handle a wide variety of human resource tasks including recruitment, compensation, benefits, training, development, Equal Employment Opportunity representation, and safety.
Training and Certification
A human resource professional must be well versed in a wide range of knowledge and interpersonal skills. To become a certified in human resource management you must have at least a bachelor’s degree in a related area of study, be employed by an organization as a human resources professional, and demonstrate core competencies as a human resource professional through examination. Because of the constantly changing benefits and employment laws, re-certification is required to maintain status as a certified human resource manager.
