What distinguishes great HR managers from good ones

HR managers can handle their roles differently depending on who they are and how they view their jobs. So, what distinguished great HR managers from good ones?

The role of a HR manager consists of looking after their well-being in work, salary, perks and benefits, disciplinary, and making sure the company follows regulations. Managers are usually compared to being bad or good by employees, but you can also find the difference between a good manager and a great manager.

Here are some of the differences:

Great managers not only passively listen to employees, but they also actively understand and empathise with them.

When it comes to listening to employees, whether it is a complaint or them talking about themselves or others, a good manager will hear what they have to say about the topic and act on what they think they must do to follow their job role.

A great manager will take the time to try and dig deeper into the situation to find a better understanding of how the employees feel. With a better understanding of the employee’s situation, the manager can find the best way to tailor a solution. If the manager can better understand the issue, then the employee will leave with satisfaction. If the manager is unable to find a solution but still tries to find a way to solve it, then the employee could still find satisfaction with the fact the manager still tried.

They know their basics, and try to go beyond that.

No matter how qualified one can be, the knowledge they have managed to retain, develop, and add will have a better impact on the job than the level of education they obtain. A good manager will learn the basics of the business. Good managers will have a general idea of how to do things and look up what they need to know at the moment.

A great manager will take it upon themselves to learn the ins and outs. They will learn the extra information that can help the business make better choices, such as following the regulations correctly and having the correct disciplinary procedures.

They lead employees towards success, helping them learn and develop.

With a managerial role, they tend to be filled with one person or multiple depending on the size of the business. Being a manager leaves them the responsibility to lead the employees they manage. When it comes to leadership, a good manager will tell employees what to do and expect them to have a good relationship with the task.

A great manager will offer you extra support for you to be able to complete tasks to a higher standard. They will guide you to do better than what you think you can and encourage you to do what works best for you. Leadership like this will show employees that although they are there to enforce rules, a great manager will also be there for them if they need help.

Great managers take the time to find the right fit for the team.

When it comes to recruiting employees, you must take a chance that they will be a good fit for the business. A good manager will find someone to fill the role. They might look at their qualifications and employment history and use that to hire them quickly.

A great manager will take the time to see if that person is not only qualified, but they have the same values and beliefs that the company holds. A great manager will make sure their team finds someone with the talent to complete their job while enjoying it.

Conclusion: a great manager is a good manager that does not settle for doing “enough”.

To sum up everything, good managers still get the job done but a great manager take extra steps to get the job done better than the standard. Although you might be a good manager now you can learn to develop into a great one.
