Increasing complexity of the HR function has both amplified the tasks of personnel managers and made them more heterogeneous. In this paper, we argue that organizations should develop career perspectives within the HR function to make the HR function more attractive for qualified staff, to improve its internal coordination and the competence level of personnel managers. We use the HR Shared Service Organization (SSO) model to illustrate how organizations can design career paths that foster coordination between different HR sub-units and provide career opportunities for people with interest in general managerial, HR expert and project careers. In transferring insights from contemporary career research to the field of HR, our paper addresses the neglected challenges of staffing the HR function.
