There can be so many resaons for those people to not to respect you and you are feeling that they are not respecting you because you are young.
If you have got the job because of recommendation then they might not respect you.
If you do not have BASIC Subject Matter Expertise then also they might not respect you.
As a HR Manager, you need to have control over so many things but if you are not doing it in the way that is expected from you and rather doing silly blunders, then also they won't respect you. They have hired HR Manager and not a Secretary...but if you are not behaving like a HR Manager...then they will not respect you.
Holding a designation is not that important but your work is.
So, look within, what is the problem and try to solve it.
If you need my help...then you can mail me at .

Age does not matter but experience matters.

First and foremost, you don't have adequate experience as Manager - HR. Not respecting your designation is a common problem with any HR of any organization since HR Profession is the most thankless profession as compared to others.

You are young blood and you want everybody to recognize you, but the fact is you cannot command respect and it will happen only with how you move with others.

Any change is not instant and any dynamic change you want to bring in a short time may not have permanent solutions. So deal with your IR matters in a smooth manner. Try to impress every one with your performance style.

First and fore most find why the organization requires a HR and how you can contribute for the same.

Plan your action

find out what is the worst out come in every situation

find out alternatives that is anticipate every move well in advance

action out the best move, manipulate the situation in your favour.

If you follow these I hope you can solve your problem in a smooth manner.

With Regards

Dear Sharma,
A lot of very good suggestions have been made to you. Please go though the posts and note them.
Do realise that a lot depends on your own behaviour, the environment (i.e. the type of organisation you have joined), and your perspective towards your responsibilities, your way of work, and your ability to work with your seniors.
Try your level best to make a success out of your assignment. Only if nothing works, look for another opening.
All the best.

Congrats first of all for getting into Human Resources. Its a tough and demanding job abut at the end it gives you a lot of satisfaction and a sense of achievement.
Coming to your problem, age is not at all a barrier in workplace. It all lies in the perception. Believe that you know everything in this world, and have this confidence that anything and everything you do is the best and no one could have done it any better. And from now on be assertive: in terms of your talk, your action and most importantly take pride in being an HR. Just put this in practice and you'd see the difference in others.
Being humble doesn't mean that you are having low self esteem. Just give it back to people when it matters the most.

Ti be young and holding a senior position can be really challenging in reality. I can understand what you must be going through.
I faced similar situation in 1972 - my first job. Age 20 plus. Got promoted and was heading two departments - Exports & Machinery Purchase. Directly reporting to MD, who remained mostly out of India.
No guidance from any body, only envy and jealousy. Then, I decided to hold the bull by its horns:-
a) I grew a moustache.
b) I befriended the 55 year old Chief Engineer. Played Bridge with him in the Company Club. (For technical guidance on Machinery Purchase, my contact with him was frequent.)
c) Approach - The best of manners and respect for elders.
d) Learnt the work in depth and details.
e) I was good in written and spoken English. Used this talent to my highest advantage.
f) I tried and with time learnt to use humour for greater impact.
I never looked back.
See if the above can show some direction to you.

If you improve the above things in systematic manner, the Leader ship qualities will automatically comes.
However, I agree that age & gaintic personalities provides certain plus points in normal matters but it doesn't matter in profession.
In your concern, you try to Ask instead of Advise & Be obedient instead of authoritative.

Dear kshama
You are taking my problem very about. The only problem is Dis HR dep. is recently introduced in Auto field and thts d reason bcz of my superiors do not know its importance and its working too.

And jst bcz of dis reason i m much confused to wht to do or wht to nt. and the major problem before me is tht I have signed a company bond of 1 year to stick to dis job. therefore i cant quit from here much easily.

It is faced many young officer's in first phase of their professional life. Try to master your work profile and prove your being thru that what matters is performance and NEITHER AGE NOR DESIGNATION.
