Human resources (HR) managers are employed in almost every business, sector, and non-profit. As new companies form and organizations expand their operations in this global economy, they need HR managers to oversee and administer programs to ensure continuing success.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of HR managers will grow by 9% by 2024 — faster than the average for all other occupations. The bureau also lists the median annual wage for HR managers as $104,440 as of May 2015.
This increasing demand comes because the HR field is changing rapidly and needs creative, highly trained professionals who can meet crucial organizational challenges across the public and private sectors. HR functions now go far beyond recruiting, training, managing personnel policies and ensuring equal opportunities.
