Mr. Shashank, here is your answer;
An HR executive oversees the Human Resources department at a business, and is responsible for employee paperwork, benefits, training, team building and staying on top of current labor laws. The HR executive may be in charge of an HR department, if the company is a large one, or have the sole responsibility of overseeing everything HR-related herself.
Whereas, Human Resource Generalists (HR Gen) is a group of skilled people who assists companies, especially business, in human resource related issues including Training & Development.

My perception sometimes makes me feel that there is nothing called as "Generalist" in Human resource function. My defination of Generalist is a person with a wide array of knowledge, the opposite of which is a specialist.. And all HR people must agree that HR itself is niche category function which can only be done by specialist. We easily call it Generalist but does something like this actually exist or someone from his own benefit moulded the role of a specialist into generalist for his own benefits i.e. make one person do all jobs.... Some comments from Senior professionals would throw better light on my map of reality so that we can experience the unlimited power of Human Relations easily and naturally...
