An HR director is a varied job. This HR Director likes to think her job is never the same on any given day. One day she may be onboarding a new employee, another she may be working on state regulatory issues. The key is to be flexible, even if the organization is small. Those regulations do not change for a 5 person shop or 5000 person shop, just the number crunching does. Ultimately it is about being organized or orderly, so you can plan your day and learn to drop everything if needed to put out those fires.
