    Many of the task that is performed by managers are HR related activities. To foster a good working relationship with the direct report a manager should not draw the line to say this is not their responsibility and just pass it to HR to handle the matter. Hence non-HR managers would not need to be equipped with the necessary HR related competencies to guide, coach and manage their direct reports. They should be the bridge between the employee and the HR department rather than seen as a dispatcher merely forwarding the employees request to the HR department. i always feel we should value-add to the task that we do and simply forwarding request to the HR is not adding value and the employee would end up just contacting HR directly thus loosing that close working relationship between the manager and the employee.
