well I think the following well be a challenge :
  • Recruitment : specially if the company have low salary.
  • Payroll Errors : It happens if the company conduct it manually
they may face others challenges but this so far what I have seen until now.

@Alaa_Essam, definitely one of those Challenges which can be given attention! It looks somewhat embarrassing when 'payroll errors' happen because people have to discuss money rather than ideas. HR is someone whom people consult with when they have organizational issues and then if the error is very less, people won't even discuss just to keep their good rapport and HR wouldn't even notice on certain cases if not pinged.

I think recruitment is the challenging part.

Among all the options listed by me above, I think sometimes HR also has to face a situation in which he has to recruit people from different cultures and people who speak different languages. They sometimes face difficulty in Judging between two people because it's quite obvious that whenever someone who is not akin with a particular language talks to them about his basic bio, it may be different than those who are native speakers as they will be able to comprehend well while they may not be that smart in other aspects. They also face situations many a times where they have to hire people who are some levels above them as well as contain skill sets, experience or qualifications more than the interviewer which is daunting when they are starting but over time they just accept the fact that they have to do it because it's their job and things become a little easier then. 

With the advancement in technology, HR these days have to be ahead in understanding how a particular technology should be employed and whether it will be effective or not and also introduce technology to manage the workforce and their day to day workings in the system. They certainly have to be smart, quick and adaptive to any situation and be willing to take risks and strategize as well as work as an intermediary to bring solutions to people's problem. These are just some of the things I feel are important. You may vote and if your answer is others, can comment as well.
