Human resources insights

Human Resources is a diverse profession. The skills you pick up when you study HR can be applied to any workplace, in all kinds of industries. The stats show that most of us switch jobs about every three years and with recent changes to the way we work (COVID-19) many workplaces are facing challenges they’ve never seen before. And HR Managers and Workforce Planners are more in demand than ever to help manage this.

HR roles today offer the opportunities to help your organisation stay relevant and sustainable amid the forces of disruption and help change perspective, drive connectedness and embrace bold change.

Human resources trends

In Australia, the range and type of human resources roles are growing as our economy adjusts to a work from home environment and experiences a digital transformation.
Human resource managers are needed for roles such as:

  • change management
  • mergers and acquisitions
  • creation of new roles
  • managing staffing challenges

Trends show that roles in HR are set to increase by 6% to 2024. You’ll be looking at about $1662 for a full-time weekly position, depending on your type of role. With 87% of roles being full time, this is also set to change with the way we are adapting to working from home.

Looking for a way to boost your skills in your current role? Or are you keen to get into the HR industry? Monarch Institute’s BSB50618 Diploma of Human Resources Management is completely flexible and packed with practical challenges that’ll leave you job-ready from day one.

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom” - Viktor E. Frankl

I have over a decade of experience in coaching and business development across fitness, education and, more recently, technology sectors. Two of my life’s passions are coaching and business. There is something deeply satisfying about facilitating other’s personal and professional development, and I find the intricacies of business immensely fascinating—both offering lifelong learning opportunities.

Recently I have been delivering executive coaching and training for leadership development, and have been responsible for the entire employee lifecycle across talent acquisition, training, employee agreements, and most generalist HR responsibilities. As of 2022, I’m in my second year of an Executive MBA (Masters of Business Administration).

What makes me jump out of bed in the morning?

The unknown!
