Whether you are growing your Human Resources career or looking to break into the profession, I will teach you the top 5 most in-demand HR skills and which ones will land you the career-defining job or promotion.
Here are the top 5 most in-demand HR skills:
🍊 1. Talent Acquisition
Even if you are an admin or generalist, recruiting is such an important skill because:
➡️ Many small/mid sized companies look for a person who can do HR & Recruiting to save on costs
➡️ If you want to be promoted to a VP level, you may need experience across the HR function, especially talent acquisition.
🍊 2. Total Rewards
Compensation, benefits, other incentives. Ensure there is pay equity. Choose the right benefit plans to attract talent, address the needs of employees, and have a massive impact on the budget.
🍊 3. Immigration & Employment Law
This area is a crucial pain point for many employers and so knowing the ins-and-outs of immigration & employment law is an important skill. The company's legal standing, the employee's ability to work - everyone is looking to you to guide them!
