What does an HR director do?

A good HR director should be able to administer, mobilize, and develop the human resources involved in an organization for greater efficiency and effectiveness. It does not mean that people are resources but rather that people have resources (talent, skills, gifts) that need to be managed.

As a human resources director, it is up to you to manage the resources of the people so that they are best invested in achieving the objectives defined by the company.

What Not To Do: Not adapt to the culture of the company

The culture of a company is the norms and values that are developed, including behavior, language used by the staff, the daily business processes. Culture is, therefore, a set of practices already anchored in the habits of the organization. So, as a newcomer in the company, not thinking, acting, adapting to this culture can lead to a disconnect with the other staff. This disconnect can result in misguided decision-making that can frustrate more than one and create a disagreement.
