The constant question of what area to go into was always coming up. After many talks and research, I decided to go into human resource management. Many people questioned and often said “Why human resource management?” My answer, I chose human resource managers because I believe they are a vital part of a hospitals success. They make the plans, they direct the staff and they coordinate how people work together and where they need to be. Throughout this paper, I will describe human resource managers- what they do, what are the requirements to become a manger in this field how they do it, who employees these managers, how much they get paid and why they are important to health care.

Human resource managers are an important aspect to a hospital; it is important for the person that takes on that title to have the proper qualifications in order to do the job correctly.
