I want to move to employee relationsOn 7 May 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. I have worked as an HR generalist for six years. I find I am increasinglyinterested in employee relations. What are the prospects for careers withinthis area? Is there a demand for this specialism and where do you think such acareer path could lead? And would there be any disadvantages to such a careermove? Caroline Battson, head of interim, Macmillan Davies Hodes Employee relations is one of the most popular areas of a generalist role inHR. In addition to solid generalist knowledge, the attributes needed fordealing with employee relations issues successfully within an organisation aregood communication skills, and the ability to influence and consult. It is a specialism within a generalist’s remit in the same way ascompensation and benefits, and training. If employee relations is the area youfind most interesting, you should have little trouble finding a role that hasan employee relations focus. You may want to concentrate on companies with large HR departments, as theywill often have dedicated employee relations’ positions within the HR team. Youwill find that an in-depth knowledge of this area will ensure you are in a goodposition to secure employment as it is the base for all HR roles. Cliff Dixon, consultant, Chiumento This field is specialist, and you will need to be sure you have sufficientinterest and aptitude to handle the necessary detail. Traditionally, this work has been found in large corporations and sectorssuch as manufacturing and engineering, but is now also being outsourced. Thisis creating a demand for writers of clear formatted guides and deliverers whocan enable managers to get to the core of an issue as fast as possible. You should thoroughly research the market for jobs, networking with bothspecialists and relevant generalists. CIPD magazines will give you anindication and HR recruitment agencies can help with unadvertised contacts. Test your own suitability and temperament for this type of work with allyour contacts. You will also need to carefully assess your long-term careerplan. Moving from generalist to specialist not only means less variety ofcontent, but can be a disadvantage in the future should you wish to revert. Inany event, you will need to stay in touch with the entire HR sector to maintainyour credibility. Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMSConsultancy You say you are interested in employee relations but it depends on how youdefine employee relations. A number of academics have put forward the view thatit is more than just procedures, staff negotiation and consultation. It isabout creating a climate that enhances the contribution of the employee. Anemployee relations professional should therefore be looking at performancemanagement programmes, training and development to improve business performanceand employee involvement. If this is the view you subscribe to then this couldbe a good career move where you can be seen to make an impact. If you take a narrower view, namely that employee relations is aboutemployment legislation, conflict and policy, then there are roles in theprivate and public sector. This will give you a specific expertise, but willnot necessarily restrict your future career options. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article
