Dear seniors,
Thanks for your reply.
HR professionals who are working in IT or ITES industry gets more benefits (Monetary & Non Monetary) compare to Manufacturing & Service Industry even their education & experience is same & personal attributes too.
All staff members are educated & can understand the things soon.
No Union, less political interference & so….

I am personally not convinced by your reasons to shift to IT/ ITES industry. In my opinion, challenges for an HR person are far more in industries which are labor oriented.

But HR, as a profession, is industry independent since it relates to life cycle management of employees across the organization. Only difference is in the framework of policies & processes to manage people. And this difference may be there even between different companies of the same industry. What I mean to say is that one's contribution to the organization, as well as personal growth as a professional, is certainly more through continuity, within the same industry. You hear so often about concepts like 'HR as a Business Partner'. How can you become an effective business partner till the financial aspects of managing a business are clear to you? In this respect, each business vertical differs from the other. So by migrating from manufacturing to IT/ ITES, you don't merely have to learn about their HR policies & processes, but also about the management of business in an IT company. Believe me, it is a tremendous task, not worth attempting, especially when the same effort can carry you far ahead in your existing environment.

Change, for the sake of change, is seldom beneficial unless undertaken after due diligence, introspection and analysis.

Dear seniors,
I agree with that challenges are more in Manufacturing, If we are able to face challenges then why there is high difference in compensation & in benefits.
but what about their should be compensated...benefited. Isn't it?

From India, Pune
Mahesh, the compensation norms for workers, irrespective of industry, are well defined in terms of minimum wages payable for different categories of employees. But for employees in the executive cadre, it is the concerned company (not even the industry) which is empowered to decide their compensation policy & can vary it as per their business growth.
In the IT sector itself, HR Executives have widely varying compensation from SMEs to multinational companies. Your argument that IT pays more than manufacturing to their HR staff needs statistical validation. My suggestion, however, would be not to invest time in such futile comparisons which can only be attempted by those doing research. If you find some IT company offering you a better package, by all means do migrate there & devote time to learning their processes & business. That could be more gratifying if you are truly fond of facing new challenges.

Hi all,
I would reckon HR is HR and dealing with Humans everywhere.
I have worked in Manufacturing and am now in Medical devices. Manufacturing is challenging as it is more labour intensive and in smaller set ups the HR is supposed to handle IR and adminstration too. But if you are working in hardcore HR the core remains.
Different industries have different challenges and you get to become more rounded in your profile if you work in varigated sectors.
I would encourage you to move if you get an opportunity.
