What Is Human Resource Administration?

Human Resource Administration or HR Administration is a wide-ranging career choice that is perfect for a real “people person”. Human Resource Administration duties include research on industry and state employment trends and working as part of a team to ensure jobs are filled, candidates receive communication and employee needs are appropriately processed according to state and federal laws. Job functions may also include project specific assignments, problem-solving, presentations, reporting and assisting with overall employee well-being. Human Resource Administrators typically work in an office setting for a large corporation or a small-to-medium size firm. Human Resource Administrators often report to a Human Resource manager or director, depending on the size of the organization.

What Career Options Are Available in Human Resource Administration?

Human Resource Administrators have a variety of career paths. Some HR Administrators will focus on corporate recruiting and be highly involved with employing staff, while others may focus on internal compliance with state and federal employment regulations. Others still may focus on employee training and introducing new concepts to groups or the entire organization. Other job titles for individuals with a HR Administration degree include talent manager, office assistant, human resource manager, corporate recruiter, corporate trainer, compensation administrator, payroll clerk or benefits associate. After working as a HR administrator, opportunities for advancement could take many forms depending on the overall size of the organization and company needs.
