Bersin Releases HR Career Factbook

“The Career Factbook for HR and Learning Professionals” is an indepth analysis of the demographics and characteristics of today’s human resources and learning profession. The Bersin & Associates study was designed to help HR and L&D professionals understand what really drives success, job satisfaction, career growth, compensation and engagement.

Findings of interest:

>> HR and learning professionals are motivated by a desire to help people, improve their organizations, and gain the respect of their organizations. Compensation is a relatively low driver of job satisfaction.
>> Experience, rather than education, is the biggest differentiator between executives and practitioners. Most executives have line-of-business experience and emphasize skills such as planning, communication and budgeting.
>> Thirty-four percent of respondents have bachelor’s degrees, 51 percent have master’s degrees, and 7 percent have doctorate degrees.
>> More than 40 percent have 15 or more years in the profession; 66 percent have 10 years or more.
>> Average compensation ranges $67,381 for those with two to five years of experience to $115,200 for those with 15 or more years of experience.
