An HR administrator is an entry-level position in the human resources department, reporting to the HR analyst, HR manager, or HR director. HR administrators are the first point of contact between an employee and the company and deal with internal and external partners. It is an HR administrator who reaches out to the VP of HR, HR directors, and managers with HR-related queries.
The HR administrator’s primary task will be a helping hand to the HR department to manage internal HR databases. Typical duties include updating daily HR documents, answering employees’ questions, and keeping a track record of personnel documents.
The HR administrator will develop a calendar and assist employees on their medical leaves, and federal holidays. HR administrators handle the majority of the documentation such as contract formation, recruitment paperwork, and complete employee documentation.
