5 Signs of a Bright HR Professional
Want to know how to spot a really bright HR professional? Here are five qualities that we think any bright HR professional should exhibit (listed in no specific order, as they are all important for different reasons):
A bright HR professional should be knowledgeable in many diverse areas – not just HR processes and employment law (although these certainly help!). Good examples of what a bright HR professional should seek to learn, are:
– The company’s goals and objectives
– Names, passions and interests of the people within the workforce
– Corporate strategy, and what a business needs to succeed
A bright HR professional is not afraid of thinking on his or her feet – they will be able to design creative solutions to complex problems, without the use of a policy sheet or handbook!
Bright HR professionals should be great communicators, in both one-on-one and group scenarios alike. Whether it’s conducting a back to work interview, or presenting a fantastic new idea to the board of directors, a bright HR professional is a good listener, and can deliver relevant information in a way that is understood by all.
The HR department has to deal with a lot of employee issues, such as falling outs with staff. Bright HR professionals will be trustworthy, respectful and objective in all areas.
With so much to deal with, HR professionals can easily collapse under the strain of a heavy workload. Bright HR professionals have ways to deal with this, and have great time management and self-discipline skills:
– Planners and organisers to stay on top of workload
– Punctual, arriving on-time to shifts, meetings and appointments
– Remain calm and collected even during conflict and chaos
