Job outlook data

Human resources managers held around 123,000 jobs in 2014, the last year for which data are available. Employment of human resources managers is projected to grow 9 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations.

As new companies form and organizations expand their operations, they will need more human resources managers to oversee and administer their programs. Human resources managers will also be needed to ensure that firms adhere to changing employment laws regarding occupational safety and health, equal employment opportunity, healthcare, wages and retirement plans. For example, adoption of the Affordable Care Act spurred the need for more human resources managers, who help ensure compliance with federal regulations.
