HR Generalist FAQs

An HR Generalist is a professional who handles the daily operations of an organization's Human Resources department and manages the department's policies, programs, and procedures. HR Generalists typically report to an HR Manager or Human Resources Director, but they have the skills to independently tackle day-to-day HR tasks. In small- to medium-sized companies, an HR Generalist may bear responsibility for all HR functions. In larger companies, they may make up only a small part of the department.
An HR Generalist's duties vary depending on the size of the organization and its unique personnel challenges. In general, these individuals enforce company policies and perform tasks related to reporting, hiring, and compensation. When you hold this position, you can expect to:
