Dear member,

There is not a watertight demarcation between HR and Admin. The line that divides the two is blurred. However, before answering the query, can you please confirm the nature of your industry, total employee count, whether you are from HR or Admin, what the area in sq ft covered by your company, etc Please sufficient context to get better replies.

Human resources (HR) administrators handle a variety of tasks related to managing personnel within an organization. Here's a guide to some typical responsibilities:

Hi Vedant,

Human Resource / Human Capital and Administration are two different department with its own line of responsibilities.

In case of Human Resource / Human Capital - Majorly HR has to manage Talent Management and HR Operations as, Mr Raghunath has given a very good summary and in addition to it if HR is HRBP or Strategic HR than its more involved with management and business to sync the deliverables.

In case of Admin, the responsibilities involves Office Administration, Vendor Management, Maintenance of Office, Utilities, in large setup - Canteen and Transportation is also involved.

However, in small set up HR Admin is common, also in large MNC's HR and Admin Head is common but team is different, whereas in mid level corporates, the HR and Admin are two separate department reporting identically, in such case if admin is part of HR than it is only restricted to employee related admin activities and not office.

This is as per my knowledge and experience.

From India, Mumbai
Mr. Vedant & Raghunath Very good Described, I said Company security part also responsible Administration too.
