The title of Human Resource Manager can be applied to a wide variety of specialists, all of who are responsible for one or more aspects of employee hiring, training, treatment, and satisfaction. Generally speaking, they act as somewhat of a liaison between employees and employers. In a large corporation, the Director of Human Resources typically is the overall manager in charge of several departments which cover specific human resources activities. Each of these departments may also have its own manager. Employment and placement managers supervise the hiring and separation of employees. Training and development managers conduct and supervise training and development programs for employees. Labor relations managers implement labor relations programs and prepare information for management to use during collective bargaining agreement negotiations. In some organizations, particularly government agencies or large firms, EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) managers investigate and resolve EEO grievances, examine corporate practices for possible violations, and compile and submit statistical reports. Education, Certification, Licensing Most jobs in this field require either a bachelor's or advanced degree. Many colleges and universities today have degree programs in personnel, human resources, or labor relations. Still others offer courses leading to a career in human resource management which may be found in other departments such as business administration, education, communication, or public administration. Some specializations require advanced degrees. Many labor relations manager jobs, for example, require graduate study in industrial or labor relations. An advanced degree such as a master's degree in human resources can be not only helpful but in many cases necessary to become a human resource manager in a large organization. Human resource managers are generally not licensed; however, some organizations offer certifications which can boost a manager's credentials. The Society for Human Resource Management offers two of these: the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR). The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) Certification Institute offers certification in the learning and performance field. The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans confers the Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBP) designation on those who complete a series of college-level courses and are able to pass exams.
