Human Resources Manager

Human Resources Managers oversee the staffing, employment conditions, training and team development requirements and general issues of human resource allocation within an organisation.

The Human Resources Manager guides and manages the overall provision of Human Resources services, policies, and programs for a company or autonomous unit within an organisation.

Human Resources managers aim to develop and lead employment practices and objectives that will provide an employee-oriented, high performance culture that emphasises empowerment, quality, productivity, and standards; goal attainment; and the recruitment and ongoing development of a superior workforce.

The Human Resources manager is responsible for the development of processes and metrics that support the achievement of the organisation's business goals.

The Human Resources manager coordinates the implementation of people-related services, policies, and programs through Human Resources staff and assists and advises managers about Human Resources issues.
