Human Resources Coordinators work hard to support the HR department. They make themselves available to complete tasks and follow through where their management team cannot, answering employees’ inquiries and complaints or acting as a liaison between employees and management. The same goes for interactions between employees and benefit vendors/administrators.   
A day for Human Resources Coordinators can include several operational and system administration support tasks ranging from performance management to data management and employee support and outreach. There are, for instance, company healthcare plans to manage, performance review and termination processes, and recruitment processes that involve candidate selection and interviews. 
Data entry is an essential component of this position. Coordinators will spend a great deal of their time entering and reviewing data using their demonstrated computer proficiencies with Microsoft programs and recruitment software. Creating organizational charts, reports, and other documents will likely fill their days, identifying issues and resolving problems as needed.
