This is very controversial question who is superior and which task is better ?
Hence i do think, HR has a very wide scope of task from entry-Manage-exit whole, where as in manufacturing industry you will have to tackle statutory compliance, Employee relation, etc. where you will be well confronted with the legal expect of the HR in Manufacturing industry which makes you special in the race in comparison to other.

Thanks Amar for your reply, actually my flare is more towards statutory compliance but i like the culture of service sector and wanted to move into it. Do service sector include all the functional area of HR including statutory compliance??

Sub- manufacturing sector -service sector

Manufacturing sector and service sector are two different sectors with HR issues peculiar to them. For example, the manufacturing sector has to deal with blue collared work force which have problems peculiar to them like welfare issues, compliances with factory laws, negotiations and labour disputes but probably, there will be less headache on employee turn over in this segment of work force. Thus a HR professional in manufacturing sector will grow stronger in the skills of negotians and as Mr.Amar said, in the knowledge of labour laws and compliances and emerge tougher in mangement skills.The performance appraisal will be different from that in public sector since in manufacturing sector the productivity is quantifiable.

The service sector comprises of white collar and educated work force which is highly mobile because of the market for them. So there will be high employee turn over and one should be strong in the skills of recruitment and talent lmanagement. Thus I concur with Mr Amar that experience in manufacturing sector will equip you with the special knowledge ansd skills which gives you an edge over others. The transition from manufacturing sector and service sector will be smooth for HRbut the vice-versa may not be true.

However, the basis concepts of Hr shall be acquired which canbe applied and adapted to any scetor.

Fortunately yes, statutory compliances is a legal obligation as well as an integral part of every organisation including Manufacturing as well as Service Industry. Furthermore your question is that will service sectors has also these features, then my answer would be yes. Before going for any of the war you should possess every arms which may require in future course of action. Alike same in service industry before picking up a field you should make preparation to get enter in it.
In relation to that , that would be better if you will have the professional edge in that particular field such as LLB, IRPM, CS & MBA (HR) etc would be fruitful for you to make stronger and emphatic entrance in any of the field.

HR Management &Development has very vital role in the corporate.Its not the technology,or the equipments or the machinaries that brings about industrial/corporate growth but its human resorce and its effecient and skillful management and application that creates brands and brings in most creative and innovative concepts in the bussiness.
As regards to learning and exposure of hr concepts, I am of the opinion that type of industry doesn't matter much,But HR Person must apply his best aquired skills to develop Human resouces in such a way that where ever he /she works, the employees under them must have job satisfaction,organisational commitment and focus on achieving the higher goals and perform at the peak of their skills and talents.

In my opinion, in manufacturing sector there will be lots of scope, compare with the service industry. I have experience in both the sector, based on that i am saying this. In manufacturing sector you will have full time work, where in service industry that much work will not be there compare with the manufacturing sector. There will be a reason that in manufacturing sector work force will be more on company roll as well as contract labour, so there statutory compliance, recruitment etc will be there, where in service industry work force will be less.

Manufacturing and service sector are two different sectors with HR issues. If u want to learn so many things realted to HR &IR...U CAN GET IT ONLY IN MANUFACURING UNIT..
If you want to jst learn somethng and enjoy the job....u can consider service industry..
bt make ur choice as every industry has its own pros and cons....

Kindly elaborate. Are you saying that HR pro in manufacturing industry do not enjoy their job? Or are you saying that HR pro in service industry have lots of free time to enjoy?
