Hi Chowdary,
Generalist HR covers recruitment, comp & benefits, Training & development, performance appraisal, Employee welfare, Industrial Laws etc. It covers entire gamut of HR & Administration.
Thanks, Regards,

Hi All,
The word 'Executive' is used for entry level or may be with experience of 2-3 years in India, but in the rest of the world 'Executive' is used for mostly top management.
When you say the difference between HR Generalist & Executive HR, it is company specific. Normally, HR generalist is a general term used for somebody covering major aspects of the HR. For ex: somebody who is handling recruitments would be called as a 'Recruiter', but a generalist is just a role or function. The designation would be Executive HR or Administrator HR or Officer HR etc. depending on the company and their designation structure.
Hope this would be fine.
Thanks & Regards,

well the difference is that the Executive is the one who has the role of execution. so whatever the manager ask him/ her to do he/ she executes (as the name itself suggests and the hierarchical level goes).... Manager is the person who has the power to manage and put the resources to use in correct way and time. whereas his assistance is der to help him in all the possible ways. hence the manager may be the person with specialized stream of HR like HR Recruitment Manager, HR T&D Manager, HR Talent Acquisition Manager, etc... now coming to Generalist, this profile has the hand on the entire HR gamut, where it may start from recruitment and covers administration, legal compliances, strategic HRM, Performance Management, etc. the HR Officer is the synonym to the the HR Generalist but widely been used in PSUs' as they have a defined hierarchy under the Govt. guidelines. Hope it explains the difference well. Thank you.1 Kindly add into my know how as well if any correction is required.

It’s just an nomenclature. The job description remains the same except for an increase in additional job responsibilities.
