Ompare and Contrast HR Generalists and HR Specialists

Using the Northcentral University Library to conduct preliminary research, locate a minimum of two (2) articles to help identify the differences between the two types of HR functions identified: generalist and specialist.

Defend your argument with examples of how specialists and generalists work within an organization.

Support your paper with a minimum of two (2) resources, which may include your required text. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Length: 3-5 pages not including title and reference pages
