Pros: employee benefits, company sickness scheme, shares and bonus schemes
Cons: no fixed working hours when the workload is high so planned personal activities sometimes suffer.
The joy and motivation for working in HR is the fast paced environment which is open to change. Customer demand and company decisions can require a re prioritisation of requirements and objectives. Delivering a timely customer service with energy whilst taking responsibility for decisions and outcomes is paramount.
I have had the benefit of working – more... with many people who consider customer service and working collaboratively as a team is pivotal to the success of an HR function.
The role can become difficult when dealing with sensitive situations but in my experience being up front with people, doing what you say you`ll do and keeping people informed even if this means delivering difficult messages is important.
My most rewarding experiences have been working with managers to resolve people performance situations, taking ownership of situations, in particular long term sickness case handling and administration.
I enjoy the day to day office administration work, this to some people is boring and tedious but I am methodical, organised,motivated and can work using my initiative. – less
