There is a great need for talented human resource teams in the Philippines. Companies are constantly struggling to find talent, despite the growing population and thousands of Filipinos entering the workforce every year.
HR professionals are responsible for making sure the company runs smoothly in the face of any adversary, such as internal conflict. They navigate complicated benefits and make sure everything is in smooty working order, so your employees can focus on their jobs.
Below we list the average salaries in the HR field in the Philippines.

The typical skills progression of an HR assistant to manager looks something like this;
- Begin by doing low-level tasks such as filing, attendance monitoring, and other administrative tasks for the department. This is to learn the mechanics of how the department works on the first level.
- Once you understand more of the system, you begin managing files, handling recruitment tasks, and administration tasks that deal more with finances (such as salary and benefits).
- When you’ve gotten your feet wet with recruitment, you graduate to training and onboarding new employees. You deal more with high level strategy, such as goals and objectives of the company, and bring that into your work.
- Finally, at the top level you have the authority and experience to implement new programs, policies, guidelines and procedures for the company’s talent. You oversee the direction of the department, which leads the direction of recruitment, which leads the direction of the brand.
