what HR assistant jobs entail
Human resources sssistants work in offices, often under the supervision of a human resources manager. While many duties revolve around recruiting, interviewing and hiring new employees, human resources workers assist in training, evaluating, and providing pay and benefit information to new or current workers. Therefore, there are three main components of your job:
- Recruitment: Assisting in the recruitment effort, booking interviews, posting ads, assisting new employees
- Records management: Updating HR files and personnel records, performing audits, and keeping things up to date
- Payroll and benefits: Assisting with payroll processing, answering questions, and assisting with benefits related questions/claims
In most cases, you will work standard office hours, however, you could also participate in offsite recruiting, internal training, and with corporate functions.
