HR Careers Report 2019

Trends in salaries, titles, and more.

Close your eyes and picture this: you’re at work, sitting across from one of your company’s HR representatives. What do they look like? Are they a man or a woman? How old are they?

HR stereotypes have long perpetuated notions of HR being the “fun police” or “the firing department,” but modern HR professionals are working to eliminate the negative associations and make strides toward a better workplace for all employees. We dug deep into Namely’s database of over 1,000 companies and 200,000 employees to discover what it's really like to work in HR.

Key findings in this year's report include:

  • Gender pay inequality persists in HR, regardless of company size or job title.
  • More than 50% of HR leaders report to the CEO.
  • At all levels, HR professionals make less than their recruiting counterparts, despite having much longer tenures.
