As a Human Resources professional, you may be faced with making tough decisions. This is true because much of your work is on behalf of the larger organization, unlike other departments whose work is primarily focused on their own functions. Therefore, you might receive much of the “heat” for the end-result of what you do on behalf of the organization. Conversely, you might not be recognized for the work that you do, since much of your work is behind the scenes.
The organization must be located in this search engine and have a large Human Resources Department or HR Division. There should be adequate information from this site, coupled with the company’s websites, to identify their business vision and mission, objectives, and strategies. You are encouraged to select an organization other than the one in which you work to facilitate achieving an organizational view not impacted by your current position view limitations – this is critical.
