24 3.3.3 Qualification of HR Managers The job of personnel managers is complex. Meeting the ever increasing needs, aspirations and expectations of employees is not easy. To complicate his role further, top management expects the personnel manager to: 1. Convey its commands, instructions policies and programs to employees in an effective way. 2. Liaison with line managers smoothly. 3. Look after the safety and welfare of employees. 4. Take care of the legal provisions governing the workplace. 5. Offer expert advice on issues relating to human resources planning, recruitment, training, appraisal, compensation etc. In Union management relations the personnel man is expected to absorb frayed tempers, notes of discontent and disagreements while creating a dialogue and bringing about peace. While discharging the above duties and responsibilities he is not expected to lose sight of his moral and social obligations towards employees and the general public. The question of prescribing a set of qualifications for personnel manager, in view of the expanding list of tasks, makes the search or a suitable candidate rather challenging. Keeping the diversity and elasticity of the personnel Manager’s job in mind. 3.4 REVISION POINTS 1.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
