Additionally, human resource specialists handle compensation analysis, benefits negotiations, employee orientation and training, and pension and retirement benefits. Some human resource specialists work in more focused positions that allow them to specialize in one or two aspects of employee management while others are tasked with handling all aspects of employee relations. Human resource specialists can expect to work during normal business hours.
