As the saying goes, employees are often their companies number one asset. Personnel costs can also be one of a company’s most expensive forms of overhead. So it’s no wonder that qualified human resources specialists can be integral to the running of a business.
The BLS forecasts that employment of human resources specialists is expected to grow 21 percent from 2010 to 2020, which is faster than the average for all occupations.[i] . Typical functions of human resources specialists include recruiting and screening talent, negotiating employment contracts, acting as general intermediary between the corner offices and cubicles, resolving employee grievances and conflicts, minimizing the impact of sudden expansion and downsizing, ensuring regulatory compliance, managing employee training and benefits and, of course, maintaining employee morale at an all-time high.
