Human resource management involves coordinating the resources and activities of organizational
members in a systematic way to achieve common goals. Skills include acquiring, maintaining
and developing an organization’s human resources (HR). Positions include human resource
manager, benefits manager, labor relations manager, personnel manager, and training
and development manager. According to the Department of Labor, employment of HR managers
is projected to grow much faster than average at 21 percent between 2010 and 2020.
