Looking for Advice: I am an HR Associate at a midsized company. I was just informed that our HR Generalist put in their resignation. My boss (HR Director) let me know that I am going to be taking on more responsibilities (previous responsibilities of the Generalist role). I’m wondering… should I request a role change or ask for a bigger salary/more compensation? What is appropriate in this situation?
Any advice is appreciated. :)

If you're gonna do thr job of thr HR Generalist, then you should get the corresponding promotion ie title & pay

That you for the input. However, I am unsure if I am going to be taking on all responsibilities. I think more discussion with my boss is necessary…

I'd start a conversation with your boss about what they plan to do with the departing employee's job. Will they be hiring another HR Generalist? If so, would there be a way for you to transition into that role? This demonstrates interest and will let you know if your taking on additional work duties is temporary or something permanent. If it's the latter, then I'd hold off and ask for a raise and possible title change a little down the road, once you've settled in and mastered the new tasks.

I agree with this comment 100%. It's better to hang tight and see what are plans are first. You can also ask for additional training to show your eagerness

I agree more discussion is in order. Echoing what others said, find out if they plan to backfill or not. If not, then perhaps ask for a re-evaluation in 6 months after you prove you can do the additional responsibilities. Make sure you have touch-points every 30 days to ensure you're on track for success. If they do plan to backfill, ask to be considered for the promotion.

100% yes

I think you should handle the responsibilities first, review the new work role and then ask for a promotion/salary raise.
