Human Resources Analyst
Human resources analysts collect, analyze, and interpret data about jobs. They are analyzers, connectors and contributors who work hand-in-hand with human resources specialists to ensure their company is properly staffed and that employees are working to their best potential.
They gather information for the HR department and research things like compensation and benefit plans. They use data to create job descriptions and evaluate employee performance, salaries and productivity. They need to be analytical, decisive, and have strong written and verbal communication skills, as well as know how to use specialized human resources and database software.
Most human resources analysts have at least a bachelor’s degree in human resources or business administration. Employment for these HR professionals is projected to grow 7-8% by 2029, which is faster than average.
