Glassdoor Economist Pay Overview

What is the pay outlook for Human Resources?

Human resources (HR) jobs are an essential part of many businesses and tend to grow at a similar rate as the overall labor market. As the labor market strengthens and businesses increase hiring, more recruiters and HR specialists are needed. Many HR jobs lend themselves well to remote work, which will become more common in the coming years. Smaller companies are expected to continue to shift many HR functions to agencies, rather than rely on in-house specialists, providing opportunities for employees to diversify their work. Data and technology will play an increasingly important role in HR, so digital and quantitative skills can help candidates stand out.

A Hr administrator salary range in US can vary based on important factors such as education, skills, certifications, and years of experience.
