Human Resources acts as the mediator between an organization’s management and its workers. This requires wearing many hats: It’s an HR specialist’s job to make sure that employees are working in a safe environment, that disputes are settled and that benefits are understood and functioning properly. At the same time, HR is charged with recruiting new employees who will both fit in well and help the company achieve profitability. They also represent management when negotiating for benefits with companies administering these benefits and when implementing company wide policies that will ultimately lower costs or boost profits. The needs of HR cover a wide range of tasks and, therefore, require someone who is not only good with people, but also organized, analytical, business-minded and able to juggle many projects at once.

Because running an HR department is a lot of work and involves watching out for the well being of their employees—they are essentially responsible for the hiring of the employees, which without, there would be no company—some people say that running an HR department is a lot like running the armed forces. To some, this may be a bit extreme, but the characteristics are quite similar. While having these basic traits is required in our candidates, we also look for the following:

Someone Who Always Strives to Do Better:

This is a trait that we look for in candidates. By properly evaluating their own weaknesses and strengths, and by constantly looking to improve those areas daily, candidates will continually improve their ability and performance, which is good morale for your staff.

Technically and Tactically Proficient:

Candidates need to be the type that keep current with the latest technical developments in their field of expertise, and who know how to deploy their resources for the maximum return on investment, which is a great development principle for your employees.

Sense of Responsibility Among Subordinates:

Candidates need to be the type to take accountability down to the base level among your staff. They should make sure they are aware that you will hold them accountable for their actions and assignments.

Make Sound and Timely Decisions:

Candidates need to have the personality to make sure that their decisions are well thought out. They need to be the type to take into account all relevant information, who don’t act rashly or out of anger, desperation or any other emotional state. Irrational behavior does not make for sound decision making.


We make sure that candidates are viewed as a role model. They should be visible in their daily activities, and always hold themselves to a higher standard, as this will motivate others to improve themselves.


Candidates should always be prepared for their next assignment and take charge of all areas of responsibility. If a mistake is made, they should stand up and take the heat. By doing so, they will demonstrate a key principle of leadership—that we all make mistakes, we are all fallible but it is how we respond to our mistakes that separate the professionals from the pretenders.

Clear Communicators:

You need to trust your people, but also always clarify what it is that you want done. We want the same of your candidates. Candidates should trust their team members to do their job but verify it has been done to their standards. By doing so, they will make sure that they are involved, accountable and creditable with their superiors.

Team Oriented:

Part of working in HR is working on a team, and cross training on each other’s’ responsibilities. By doing this, you allow your team to utilize each other’s strengths and to feed off of the team synergy. Teamwork develops a sense of shared responsibility and commitment to the objective, so your newest employee needs to demonstrate team work.

Know Their Limitations:

Candidates need to know what they’re capable of, and what their team and departments are capable of. They shouldn’t look to take on more than they can. By knowing their limitations, they’ll know when to call in the reinforcements.

In addition, all human resources professionals tend to share the following traits:

  • Ability to think critically and analytically
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Business focus
  • Computer savvy
  • Ability to work with people of various cultural and educational backgrounds/li>


Ability to quickly switch gears, for example, from administrator to counselor to negotiator.


RSI’s Human Resources Executive Search Firm team specializes in specific careers. By determining which career path a candidate wants to take, and whether or not they have what it takes to succeed in such a career, RSI can successfully wrap up the search for your new Human Resources professional.

Specific HR tasks depend on the size and unique characteristics of an organization. The majority of HR practitioners are in-house staff members who serve other diverse departments in a company. However, it’s becoming more common to outsource certain HR functions, particularly recruitment.
