Respected all,
I am working as HR-assistant in reputed organization since 6 months
In our dept. we were four persons 2 Managers and 2 Assistant
1st Managers - Payroll and General Admin.
2nd Manager- IR and legal compliance's
3rd Assistant- Training and Development
4th Assistant (my Self)- time office and Daily Reports
At the beginning they have given me work of “Time office” and ‘Various reports’
Now after 6 months I have settled myself in these responsibilities and I can complete my daily routine work timely and now I have a reasonable time in my hand,
So I want to Ask,
What Should I Do in my remaining Time ?
How should I approach to my seniors to ask for any new Task or new responsibility?
Dear all please I Need your guidance and Suggestions; it will definitely help to me
Awaiting for your Feedback

It is presumed that you are reporting to 1st Manager & are acquainted with the details of his job & responsibilities. Besides Payroll (which has a link with Attendance & Leave), he may also be responsible for managing employee database, performance appraisals, recruitment & exit process. You can pick up one of these, as per your own interest, and take your manager's consent to study the existing process & make some value addition to the same. This may require an extensive study of the CiteHR columns, or going through the details of this process on the 'EmpXtrack' website (which has lots of material relevant to all HR processes).

In this manner, you will not merely learn new things, but become an active contributor. If you are not shy of preparing a presentation on the topic chosen by you, it may be worthwhile that you share your presentation with the complete HR staff & gather their comments/ suggestions. This approach will ensure that you are fully engaged at your workplace & are promoting team spirit.

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your guidance, but my reporting is to both Managers, not particular to 1st Manager
Though my work is acquainted with 1st Manager but he is not so much wiling to teach to me,(or any junior ) any new task or any HR process.(I Observed this from Six Month)
But nevertheless I will try to talk to my Manager and I will go with your guidance
Thank you once again

Your post reminded me of my job with a reputed company where I had 2-3 hours daily where there was nothing much to do.
I tried to do lot of self-help by creating modules and training content but ultimately I could not take it more and spoke to my VP.
I think all seniors shall see the spark in employees who are willing to go beyond their normal work. A fulfilling environment can foster better motivation and learning.
I don't know in your company whether open door policy exists but try and talk to someone at a senior level in a very subtle way and see if things work out in your favor. But only do it when you have exhausted all your proactive efforts with your immediate boss.

I had talk with my II Manager about the same that, "Sir, I have time and I want any new task or Responsibility" then he replied OK (and kept quite means "You may leave now")
so now I am waiting, but still I will put my endeavor

Self learning during free time (when no work is pending) is practiced by all intelligent youngsters, whose interest is to become professionals. And 'self learning' requires no permission from bosses.
Therefore, instead of asking Manager 1 or Manager 2, get going in life & learn something new. There are a host of articles in the 'EmpXtrack Blog' which introduce an aspirant to the totality of modern HR function, as viewed by the experts. Even if you read one article a day and assimilate it well, it shall develop in you enough confidence to present new concepts to your managers & the company management.
But please remember that you don't pick up knowledge to impress others, you are to put it to use when an opportunity arises. And there is no end to opportunities, if the frustration levels are kept low. I know you are capable and you should lift the veil of being 'Anonymous', earlier the better. Good luck.
