From Pakistan, Sialkot

Good HR managers see themselves as allies, not policeman.


1) show empathy

2) Are approachable to employees

3) Communicate effectively

4)flexible in administering policies and in their own work schedules. Policies are guidelines

5) HR managers have two distinct, and often conflicting, roles according for a consumer products company.

They support the company to ensure they are optimising the value of the assignment and they support the employee by ensuring they are able to maximize their value to the organization.”

6)they actively listen to the employees

7)Leadership -- taking people to a place that they would not normally go to on their own.That also by good strategic planning.

8) able to Cope with change and operating difficulties

9) heart of organizational leadership

10) By providing the right C (challenge, confidence, or coaching) to the employees.

11)define a vision, articulate values, and infuse both into every aspect of employee management

Hope this answers your ques.

If not you can ask for some more.

SOME IMPORTANT SKILLS REQUIRED TO BE A GOOD HR MANAGER ARE a. Listening Ability b. Knowledge Authority c. Ability to give correct directions d. Building trust amongst your followers e. Feedback


Human Resources (HR) or personnel managers contribute to the success of organisations by selecting and recruiting the best staff and then managing and developing them effectively. Recruiting the right staff requires a good understanding of the organisation's needs in terms of workforce skills and experience, which means that HR managers may be involved in communicating with individual departments of the organisation about overall recruitment policy and liaising with external recruiting agencies. They would work with line managers to analyse and evaluate staff training needs and would manage the training programme, perhaps delivering some training themselves or buying in training from outside providers. Additionally, they may be involved with policies for equal opportunities, health and safety, pay and conditions of employment. They may also design procedures to keep employee records, maintain discipline, measure performance and handle complaints.

Personal qualities

HR managers need good 'people' skills and require the confidence and communication skills to deal in a calm and tactful manner with a variety of situations, balancing the needs of the individual employee against the business interests of the organisation. You may be required to operate in stressful situations when handling issues such as discipline, redundancy or the personal problems of individual employees, so you would need a measure of resilience and an understanding of the importance of confidentiality. Accuracy, attention to detail, co-operation and teamwork are as important as a fair and objective attitude.

Good spoken and written communication skills are essential to avoid errors and misunderstandings when dealing with employees' personal details.

Hr manager should not be :-

1 Sarcastic and put other's down but he mut be empathic[/b].

2 Excuisties ( one who make excuses) rather cure himself from it becoz successful person never make excuses.

3 bad listener but a good listener as listening shows a caring attitude towards another person, that person feels important and can be easily motivated.
