Is HR valuable to a company?
Update on the new HR coordinator job, I like the organization and my job (even though I do grunt work sometimes like scanning and copying lol) I still have in the back on my mind that one day it’d be nice to start something of my own like a staffing agency.
I asked someone if me building experience in HR learning about laws and interviewing candidates for positions would help contribute to starting a staffing agency one day (along with trying to build connections).
The answer I had wasn’t good. He said HR is usually the first to get cut, is seen as an expense, is often outsourced, and not very valuable. Is this true? If so, that sucks for me!
P.S my job mainly consists of screening resumes, tracking them, interviewing, onboarding, and orientations, etc. not exactly recruiting or head hunter type stuff
