Goodwill Work: Human Resources Roles for the Friendly, Helpful, and Cooperative
As HR professionals will attest, goodwill isn’t meant for only the holidays but is part of the job year-round. The following are roles to consider if you think and work the same way
Defined as “friendly, helpful, or cooperative feelings or attitude”, goodwill is paramount in almost any workplace’s success. It is a characteristic especially necessary for HR professionals, as they usually not only work amongst themselves but are also responsible for coordinating and communicating with just about everyone else in their organizations (on top of those applying to be part of it.)
As it is presently the widely observed season of goodwill, the holidays is as good a time as any to look into your options if you happen to want to enter the Human Resources industry, or are already in the midst of an HR career and are considering new opportunities or added responsibilities.
The following are jobs with notable companies that may be worth your attention in your continued effort to do goodwill work in HR.
Save for serving as an intern, an associate role is a typical way to enter the HR industry. A particular benefit to working an associate position is working on all the general aspects of HR in a company.
This means having the opportunity to also determine which you might find you are most successful at or interested in, and ultimately take that into consideration when expanding your career.
As HR is present in just about every major company and other organizations, professionals also have their choice of industries when applying as an HR Associate.
Of course, HR roles are not limited to hiring potential employees and managing current ones. There is also the matter of dealing with finances, particularly that of the people you’ve hired and managed.
As finances are critical in any business or organization, payroll responsibilities are often segregated from other HR tasks to ensure timely output done with little to no error.
As such, Payroll Associate is another way of entering the HR industry, particularly for accounting or finance professionals who are considering not going the typical bank route.
Along with recruiting talent, HR is also tasked with managing existing talent, and in some companies, has to ensure that they are assigned jobs, tasks, projects, or clients accordingly.
Doing so can be particularly challenging in large organizations that have large teams of people, and is the reason why they hire HR professionals to take care of the existing “supply” of talent.
Applying HR Talent Supply Demand Specialist roles is a significant opportunity for professionals who like to be engaged with plenty of people, and want to do so in widely recognized big companies.
Now, more than ever, professionals place plenty of importance on career advancement, often choosing employers who provide opportunities to learn and grow over those who do not.
For this reason, many organizations have included professional development in their HR agenda, employing learning and development specialists and managers to ensure the employees have what they need in terms of continued career growth.
Organizations also stand to benefit from having Learning and Development professionals on their team, as they help ensure that the existing team is up-to-speed on current industry trends and practices.
As many companies employ professionals of different nationalities, there is also a need for HR professionals who can help address their needs and the requirements surrounding their continued employment.
With even smaller-scale companies like start-ups employing multi-nationals, there has been an increasing need for Expat Administration professionals to ensure the former’s place in the local workforce is in accordance with existing local, international, and tax laws.
This type of role provides a great opportunity to become familiar with other nationalities’ cultures and workforce, and further grow the rare skill of administering international employees in the Philippine setting.
These are but of the few opportunities presently available if you are keen on a career where you’ll work with different people in different industries, presenting goodwill to all while playing a key role in their success which results in your organization’s success.
