What exactly do you want to find out?
There are challenges in all these fields-be it legal,handling leave issues or having a proper administrative system.
Specific queries will get you specific answers,rather than general question.

Hi Amritha,
We get challenges in every single part of HR work, either you are an entry level HR or a HR manager.
In recruitment process, how to find and hire the best candidate for each vacancy is really challenging. You may face the lack of candidate source, lies in resumes, traps in interviews, culture fit...
In onboarding process, how to help new hires integrate quickly into your company is not easy at all.
Moreover, the harder part is how to boost employee engagement and retain talent. It's always a big and long lasting question in HR management.
Hope this help.

Hi Nathrao, Actually I want to know the personal experiences of the HR managers in these fields? Could you share any personal experience that you faced being an HR?

Interesting examples arise in legal issues, medical absences of lower level staff, absconding by fresh employees.
Each such issue brings about a challenge and we learn many new things and aspects.
HR is indeed complex at time when you deal with human mind.

Hi Amritha,
I am working as an oversea recruiter. I find the biggest challenge is to fill senior vacancies. To find senior candidates who match the requirements of experiences and skills is not difficult with the help of professional network like LinkedIn, but they are mostly passive candidates. You know, it's not always about the pay and benefits to convince them to leave a company. Besides, personality and culture fit are risky factors which you can only pre-evaluate by following your gut and using your experience. It's a bit harder when recruiting candidates from different cultures.

Hello Amrita,When you deal with people who can feel,think, speak,express and emote, challenges come in all forms and sizes and that too daily.There will be no dearth of them..Sometimes conveying an unpleasant news like retrenchment or dismissals to a colleague will also be a challenge.as it plays up on the emotions..The organisational challenges include hiring candidates with right cultural and competency fit and searching for ideas to engage a disengaged employee.You ask for it, the HR will have it.The best way to gain a glimpse into these HR experiences is to work with HR because experience is the best teacher.

Hi Saikumar,
Can you share any of your real experiences that you came across while working in your organization? And I think as a labour law advisor you would definetly have experience with real labourers as well (if yours is a manufacturing sector). If you dont want to share it in a public forum, you can mail me in this id :

Hello Amrita, you have not answered the question asked by the learned member Mr.Nathrao above as to what exactly do you want to find out ? I go little further and ask you why you are keen to know other's experiences in HR? Notwithstanding this, I may say that an experience may have back ground circumstances,a context, then climax and the final outcome, involving a series of conversations,transactions and probably emotions and analysis in between and cannot make the listener to properly appreciate the experience, if restricted to few lines in a discussion forum and may lead to a further question and answer session there on. Therefore the best thing is to spend few days in HR as intern, if you are a student keen on learning or to read case studies in a HR magazine or in a library, if you are an aspiring HR appearing for an interview for a HR position in manufacturing sector.

Dear Ms. Amrita,
As per my personal experience the major challenges are unprofessionalism, favoritism, groupism and politics from management and employees.
HR has a bigger role to play in mitigating the challenges by creating appropriate capabilities across the industry/sector. Without challenges there is no beauty and future in profession.
So do not afraid to face difficulties.
Yours Sincerely,
Mohan Nair.
