Modern businesses are immensely complex. Business management and human resources organises the human element of businesses. They recruit employees, set goals and ensure they’re productive. Human Resources will be responsible for people’s wellbeing in the work place. People working in the sector enjoy working with people to get the most out of them. Business Management can mean a lot of stress and demands on your time, but for driven people with the required skills it can offer a path towards advancement.
Employment growth was strong for management consultants, business analysts & project managers and there is evidence that employers are finding it difficult to find suitable candidates.
The recovery in the economy has resulted in a stronger demand for HR managers and officers. Although shortages are not expected in the short term, there are signs of increased employment and growing demand for those with sector specific knowledge (e.g. finance).
Demand appears to relate primarily to the IT and financial sectors.
A manager will be expected to lead staff so that they perform at their best. Extensive experience in the area you are managing, for example retail, is highly prized.
Do you have excellent people skills and attention to detail? A career in Human Resources could be perfect for you, as you look after the workplace needs of a company’s staff.
Companies turn to management consultants for advice on how to improve. Some management consultants are passing on experience gained in the workplace, whereas others may rely on knowledge gained from academic qualifications
Hiring new staff is a challenging prospect. Recruiters have their work cut out for them in not only finding a candidate that is qualified, but also one that has the right personality and attitude to fit the role.
