The Most In-Demand HR Careers in 2014

Which HR Positions are In High Demand?

It’s no surprise that the demand for quality human resources professionals is rising. According to SHRM’s HR Jobs Pulse Survey Report, 70 percent of survey respondents said that their organization was hiring for HR Generalist positions, and more than 62 percent of companies with 25,000-plus employees said they were actively seeking help in their human resources departments. In addition to HR generalists, respondents also said that employment/recruitment and administrative were two functions that were in-demand in their own HR departments.

At Ajilon, we’ve also seen the need for talented HR professionals in a variety of positions in 2014. In addition to SHRM’s survey findings above, other high-demand positions include human resources director, HRIS analyst and compensation analyst. Those looking for HR careers are in luck, as candidates ultimately have the upper hand in a job market with such high needs. The most talented professionals – even those that appear to be comfortable at their current positions – can be easily poached if their career wants, needs and aspirations aren’t met by current employers.
