HR careers: Did you get into HR by chance?
XpertHR’s previous research into HR careers, conducted in 2014, found that:
- Nearly half (48.5%) of UK HR professionals said their choice of HR as a career was made “by chance”, while more than one-third (36.8%) joined HR as they “wanted to work with people”.
- More than four-fifths (83.4%) were CIPD members, while 82.2% held CIPD qualifications.
- Nearly three-quarters (72.6%) agreed or strongly agreed with the proposition that “CIPD qualifications are vital for advancement in the HR profession”.
- Three-fifths (58.7%) said they would choose HR again, if they had the option to start their career over.
