Dear ms.Reddy,
Core HR Means, end to end hr activities, includes recruitments, induction, training, payroll, stitutory, PMS, employee relation, IR, and aother activities. there is no difference between core hr and journalist hr. Core hr learning is nothins jost you observe your collegues and learne the things.

What, HR Journalist role? I haven't heard such thing so far. Is it Generalist or Journalist?
Interestingly, I am an HR Consultant and a journalist as well. I write for travel magazines, Hindu Metroplus, Biz magazines and Ad media.
I hope you have got it wrong by mis-pronunciation of that word.

Dear Ms Reddy,
There does exists a difference between Core HR and Generalist HR.
Please note that it is "Generalist HR" and not what you have mentioned "Journalist HR".
I myself have started career as a HR Generalist and have a total exp of 4.5 yrs as a HR Generalist.
In simple words -
1) Core HR focuses mainly on Human Resource development side, say (80% HR activities, HR Interventions, OD and so on.. and rest 20% on routine HR activities)
2) However HR professionals who work as HR Generalists are like all rounders and they have a variety of strokes which they can play. It's a blend of HR, IR, legal/ statutory compliances and so on. (Only 40% Core HR)
Finally if you see most of the senior level HR professionals across the Industry, you will find that they have spend their early days of career working as HR Generalist.
Revert back.
thanks & regards,

Hi, In my view both are same But core HR is for top level, generalist is for down /Executive Level. The recent trends in HR is going towards various changes if u find in IT companies there will be Resource allocators their profiles are entirely different(Other than HR, IR, T&D and Liaising etc) to that of regular HR so the word core HR came into existence.

The difference between Core and the Generalist is in the way you see at things and the maturity/ current state of the organisation.. As the organisation started getting more and more mature in terms of HR practice, things which were core will start becoming non core and hence become General activities can be done easily.

In terms of practice, Generalist role is when you do thing which encompasses large gamut / range of activities.. business HR role / general support role etc.

Core HR is the about conceiving and implementing strategy / policies / practices that create the impact on the way HR delivers its services or contribute to the effectiveness of the organisation. These are more focussed and deep thinking role.

looks like someone has told you to shift from "Journalist" role to core therefore you want to shift. my advise to you is that continue in your current role and understand the the impact your role in the overall HR service delivery to your organisation.. you still have miles to go before you get into deep impacting thinking role.
