It is still a common occurrence among all sorts of small companies operating in different sectors to have no dedicated HR manager. It’s even more common for such companies to share out the HR function to a range of people within the organisation with no one having overall responsibility.
“I am living proof that you don’t need a degree to get the advanced diploma, but you do need dedication and to take your work seriously. Getting the qualification helped me to be more strategic, to evaluate evidence and to understand the reasons why I was doing things in a certain way. It gave me extra confidence and the belief that what I was doing was correct.” Steve Way, Head of Human Resources at Aquaterra Energy
