Hope everyone is doing well and hasn't melted in this heat!
As the title suggests I've started looking into the transition from a generalist HR role into a specalist HR role. For a little bit of background I have been working in HR for a couple of years, starting as an HR Assistant and most recently working as an HR Services Adviser. I'm very interested in specialising in Employee Engagement/Wellbeing once I have a couple more years of Generalist experience under my belt.
I was wondering/hoping that those who have made the transition to a specalist role could share their story/route. For example, did you do any additional qualifications (I've seen a Level 3 Health and Wellbeing course but unsure if would be recognised/seen as worth doing), how did you find the transition from a generalist role to a specalist role, did you move into a specalist role within your current company or did you need to look elsewhere etc.
Any guidance would be really appreciated.
