ABt the question - yes recruitment is a part of a generalist profile.

Hi Ash,
I reviewed the JD of Generalist, it seems okay. I need you help in hay evaluation by chart profile method.
If you can forward me a sample of the presentation, i would appreciate. But not the theory part.

This is just a jd borrowed from hr village - which is not just "OK", as u have commented. Its a great work done by them.
And trust me... I dont do spoon feeding... but yes.. to a certain extent.:icon1:, but just to help in thinkin process.
I do not possess any presentations on ur request. Would appreciate if you could work on one and put it up here on citehr for receiving additional input from seniors!
Thanks and take great care!

Dear Ruchika,
One thing I forgot to add is, it differs in Organization. If what u have mentioned below is abt a same company having two such profiles, then this is the reason:
one: They have huge recruitment needs, so that they have a person seperately to monitor pre and post recruitment activities (so they haev a recruitment manager)
and they have a generalist profile to help in Performance monitoring, Training and other activities. May be the gereralist co-ordinates with recruitment but focuses on other areas as priority.
In some companies they may have only one HR - generalist. But this person will be taking care of all HR activities. The size of the company may be small. Recruitment may be the highest prioroty depending on their need, or may be given equal priority according to other hr activities.
I hope this clarified ur query. If not, pls revert.

Hey Asha,

your description has cleared the doubt in my mind.......

Dear Ms. Asha… A Very Good Day!
Your clarification to Ruchika regarding “HR Generalist profile” is truly excellent and appreciable. Thanks for that and I hope you would continue posting such valuable information, thus helping a large group of HR professionals at their career beginning.
To introduce myself, I'm Mohammed Ibrahim and I’ve recently taken an HR Executive job in a newly startup company, where HR Dept has been setup newly and I am required to handle all core HR activities and also have to design and implement various policies for the company.
As an initial step, I have designed the attendance sheet for our employees by linking the leave register to it; and also designed a leave policy for the company. I would like to share these files with citeHR believing it might be useful to any of the citeHR users who may be looking for such stuff!
I highly appreciate your comments or feedback for any improvements/corrections in the attached files from all the citeHR users.
Best Regards

Hi Richuka,
Ash has borrowed the right profile for HR Genralist.
But as per your query, Recuitment may or may not be part of the Generalist portfolio.
As the word suggests, GEneralist profile does everything in HR , like HR operations, Employee Engagement, Exit process, etc.
BUt in some organisations, Recruitment would be a specialist function because it is so as the word suggests a Specialist. A recruiter as per me is always a specialist.
Earlier in organisations HR would perform all the functions hence a GEneralist function would involve Recruitment also...
But nowadays many companies have a separate REcruitment function.

though the answer by asha was nice, but it was not to the point because the thread starter wanted this doubt cleared that
"Does HR-Generalist profile includes Recruitment as well?" or both are saperate?????
and the only answer which is simple, is the profile may or may not include and it depends from company to company, so simple answer it is ;);)
still thanks to my dear friend asha, for elaborating the profile and by going one step ahead by showing an example of the duties to be performed by Gen HR, thanks dear friend ASHA< :p:p:p
