Dear Seniors,
One of my friend working as Hr Executive(2 yrs Exp) looking after PF,ESI,Payroll ,Contract Labour etc.
Now he has been selected as Recruiter in a recruitment firm,he is not able to decide whether to accept that offer or not.
Kindly give your valuable thought.

Dear ,
According to me he should not accept this offer,as it is quite different profile what he is doing now. A continuous telecalling and target involved.He should continue here or wait for good opportunity into H.R profile.

Respected Seniors,
I am working on a project industrial relations. my objective are: regulate the production by minimizing the industrial conflicts.
2. to improve worker strength with a view to solve their problems through mutual negotiations and consultation with the management.

I want a questionnaire regarding this. Kindly give your valuable thoughts.

they are 2 different skills:
payroll can lead to a career in comp n ben or IR...
hiring is definitely an essential part in every HR manager's role... but whether this role adds value or not will be difficult to say...

Hr is quite a vast field including many payroll, statutory compliance like pf esi bonus, recuritment is also a part of it but then if ur frnd is only coming into recuitment he is lessining his work profile which wont help much in carrer growth
i dont think he shud leave the current job


lets say this person starts working for a consultancy..

with years of exp he/ she will rise to be a "vertical head"....

salaries are high for real good vertical heads (>2crores pa)

there could be a tangent also in this career:

after 2-3 years of hard work, a person with good networking n knowledge of a sector can find job as "hiring manager" in a corporate in the same sector ...salaries can range from as low as (35k to 2 lacs, depends on the candidate/ company)

in the long run to qualify for senior positions, will be a herculean task ...

the person will have to study a lot n understand all aspects of HR be it comp n ben/ tal dev/ etc...


since the person already has 2 yrs of exp handling payroll/ labour etc

should aquire indepth knowledge of various labour laws/ pick up a bigger establishement wherein the scope for learning is more...

salaries in IR are good (salaries range from 50k to 2 lac pm for mid mgmt )

another route is aquire certifications in Comp n Ben from Hay group or CAMI or another good vendor..

at the bottom we have payroll managers get a salary of 6 -12 lacs pa..

for a comp n ben mgr its 12-13 lac upwards...

Dear All,
Even i have a query similar to this one, Currently my working for a manufacturing firm completed one year here looking after Attendance Monitoring, PF, ESIC, Recruitment,Maintaining Employee Personel Records, Payroll and Opening of Salary Accounts for New Joinees etc. now what if I get a Profile that has Recruitment, Induction, Training and Development and Performance Appraisal again in a Manufacturing firm, Should I go For it??
Plz Reply...

hi ronnie, an year is too short a period to switch .. have you learnt everything that could be learnt in the current setup, you will need to brief me on this ... then i can advise...
There is no question of our suggestion in this. Everyone wants to pursue his/her career in a particular field. It depends on the individual. Someone may aspire to be engaged in IR field, while the other may like to be trainer. While some other may would like to become Payroll processing incharge.
This needs to be decided by the individual not you and I. Whatever interests him, whatever field he thinks that he would be better suited, he decides accordingly.

Dear Ronnie,
HR is a vast area. Whatever work you do adds to your knowledge and experience. A person aspiring to for the career growth has to acquire multifarious experience in the department so as to be able to oversee various functions when he is required to do so. In private sector the concept for changing the profile of personnel in all areas except finance is catching up. I hold a view that you go for the change.
