The guidelines given by Jatiwaringin and Anshukamboj are excellent. Obviously the new manager needs to be oriented in and get acquainted with the organisation first and see where things are and therefore have a good perspective.
Then H/she can perhaps begin to deal with issues especially the urgent pressing ones; as you know some organisations want him/her to solve problems current problem(s) immediately! Hope this also helps.
The role of HR Manager may even extend to that of legal n statutory compliances.
However, it depends totally on the roles and the responsibilities demanded by that position which may vary from company to company.
SAy in some co's there may be only one manager who has a dedicated team with him. In this case he will play a supervisory role n will be initiating things and guiding his team for target completion be the case of recruitment for filling any urgent vacancy or adhering to the training calendar etc....
Similarly in some co's the manager may be having a boss and his roles are defined accordingly....
You may decide which case is yours.....
Please understand that the role of an HR is primarily the same everywhere i.e. Recruitment, T&D, Compensation, PMS, Legal etc... It is only the level at which one is working in the capacity of HR is where the difference in roles and responsibilities comes...
Hope ths helps...
