With a new year come new goals. Many people set personal goals, such as weight loss, time management, or getting organized. However, one area that may be overlooked is setting goals for your career. In this blog, read about 3 resolutions you should make to enhance your career in 2014, according to an article in HR Magazine.

The field of HR is ever changing. You need to ensure you’re growing along with your position, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are three different areas to focus your career growth in this year:

Be a better business leader – Have a chat with your CEO and understand what keeps them up at night about your company. People strategies directly tie in with business strategies and CEOs know that. Find out how your CEO wants to grow and focus on helping out in those tasks.

Invest in you – Spend some time and money on refining your skills or carving out a niche for yourself. When you specialize, you ensure job security by becoming an expert in the subfield of HR you choose.

Give back to the community – Your HR expertise is in high demand; don’t be afraid to share it! Consider volunteering or teaching a class to help close the skills gap or helping returning veterans transition back into the civilian workforce. If you’re unsure of which area to focus your community involvement, listen to your peers and other business leaders. From them you will find out the gaps you can fill in your community.

HR is an important part of any company. The role has changed from employment management to an integral part of the entire success of the company.
