There are no comfortable jobs in HR

On an online network someone said "If recruiting is tough, then what is a comfortable role in HR?"
  1. Performance Management is about making sure goals are aligned, people are assessed and given correct feedback and low performers are counseled.
  2. Compensation is about creating pay for performance so that it is equitable and yet factors in individual performance and motivates people to strive harder, and to yet keep within organizational budgets.
  3. Training and learning is about assessing right developmental inputs, assessing the right intervention and following up to see whether the behavior change has actually taken place, while keeping costs low and within budget.
As you can see there are no comfortable jobs in HR. So if you seek a HR job because you want to be "comfortable" re-assess your needs. Go join the government or something !
