Skills for an HR professional

1. Strong Communication Skills –
Probably the most important for an HR professional, can you communicate clearly, effectively and in multiple mediums? If your employees don’t get clarity from HR, everything else can go haywire.
2.  Organizational Skills –
HR employees are handling many different kinds of information and deal with multiple vendors and peers on a daily basis. To be a great HR employee, strong organization is a must.
3. Multitasking
The list of responsibilities that an HR Professional has is long and daunting. They include arranging and conducting interviews, recruiting candidates, checking with departmental managers to make sure all staffing needs are being met, staying up to date on employment laws and meeting with individual employees on HR issues. To complete these and more, an HR Department needs to be able to multitask and remain organized at all times.
4. Employee Trust
Employees expect Human Resources professionals to advocate for their concerns, yet you must also enforce top management’s policies. The HR professional who can pull off this delicate balancing act wins trust from all concerned.
5. Fairness
Successful HR professionals demonstrate fairness. This means that communication is clear, that peoples’ voices are heard, that laws and policies are followed, and that privacy and respect is maintained.
