Business Title - Clarification ??

Dear chrm'ites, 
 
I am working in logistics company as Officer - Personnel, now i am going to relocate myself to a Pharema MNC as HR Representative.
 
I asked the executives of the MNC about the designation, they said HR representative is a global designation. I dont know whether HR representative comes under Executive level or Sr. Executive level.

Dear gkv,

In the US, HR Representative is not a management role.

Re: Business Title - Clarification ??

When you say EXECUTIVE LEVEL or SR. EXECUTIVE LEVEL, youre talking of positions like MANAGING DIRECTOR, HR DIRECTOR, AVP - HR, or Sr. AVP - HR, or even VP - HR.......These positions are in executive level.

You will however know if your designation is in the executive position when your function becomes strategic in nature. But when you start spending half of the time working on paper works such as statutory benefits preparation, payroll preparation, recruitment, and updating of HRIS, then your designation is in the level of a Rank and File and not even supervisory in nature. Especially, if the position you are into right now reports to someone higher in authority and you are not empowered with the capacity to fire and hire, then you really are not in EXECUTIVE LEVEL.

But if ever you are in strategic position, or should I say your function is strategic in nature, then perhaps you are in an EXECUTIVE LEVEL and the job title HR REPRESENTATIVE does not apply. It should be HR Director or VP- HR or atleast Assitant VP - HR.

Hope this helps.

Gkv,
 
I have been a HR Representative earlier and my key roles is to make sure that corporate policy can be implemented in my representaive area. it;s not one of top management, bit it's strategic one.
 
Hope it is useful.

Re: Business Title - Clarification ??

If you are implemting policy, then you are clerical and not STRATEGIC. When you say STRATEGIC, you are actually making decision for the bestinterest of the business/company. If you are just implementing and monitoring,but you are not making directions. Then you are NOT STRATEGIC.
