How Much Should You Get Paid in HR?

HR job roles have changed drastically in the past decade, with the rise of "People teams" and Chief People Officers.

As the roles have changed, you should ask: is my salary keeping pace?

Newer HR Jobs Have Higher Pay

Organizations with People teams, rather than traditional HR, pay those employees more.

Data points to People roles paying 10-20% more than more traditional HR roles

Why Are Salaries So Different?

People teams have new and different responsibilities than traditional Human Resources.

People teams tend to have to use more technological solutions, and be able to parse data and analytics about recruitment funnels and hiring rates.

Traditional HR roles tend to focus on enforcing rules and regulations, and administrative jobs such as payroll and benefits.
