Human Resources Management

Human Resources Management

Human resources managers are in charge of an organization’s most important resource: its employees. HR managers plan, direct, organize, and control the administrative functions of organizations. They are involved in recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and training of new staff; developing compensation structures for employee groups; and strategic planning for the company’s staffing needs. The job outlook for HR managers is very high in the Scottsdale area, as there are currently not enough people to fill positions.
