Although HR managers in smaller organizations may be responsible for all of the above-mentioned tasks, these HR specialists in larger organizations may have more specialized duties. According to this, these specialized managers can be referred to as Compensation and Benefits Managers, Training and Development Managers, and the like. As supervisors, HR managers oversee the entire HR department, including managing the performance of HR personnel. Their position enables them to provide recommendations to the organization's leadership based on analyses of employee productivity. HR managers play a crucial role in identifying ways to maximize the value of the organization's employees and ensure that all HR resources are utilized efficiently.

Assistant Lecturer Ms. Taghreed Alaa Mohamed added that the basic goals of human resources management include hiring the right employees for open positions, promoting neutral and legal treatment of all workers, and ensuring the company’s compliance with applicable labor laws. The human resources team identifies the elements of each human resources job and participates in strategic planning to achieve each goal.
