How To Build Your Personal Brand - For Most People This Approach Is Good

Behave with good character. Character is the basis of your personal brand. Without it there is no trust and without trust all comes crashing down.
Educate yourself and gain experience in your field of endeavor.
Create a social media presence that shows your skills. A good LinkedIn profile with 5 references is a good place to start. Don't forget a professional profile photo.
Attend and contribute to industry groups. Network with other like-minded people.
Narrow and focus your goal. What do you want to be known for? Everything you do should connect to that.
Share your successes on your LinkedIn profile.
Contribute to a social cause you believe in and share that as well.
Good luck.

How HR Can Support The Business

Sharing the answer I posted to Quora:

HR is a subset of business management. Ideally HR is functioning to: 
  1. recruit talent aligned with the organization’s culture and operational needs 
  2. orient employees once onboard
  3. develop their skills in a way that supports the business
  4. weed out poor performers
  5. inform employees of news they need
  6. proactively seek employee and executive feedback on issues related to engagement, culture and skill alignment
  7. manage disputes and complaints
  8. manage separation in a way that maintains a positive relationship between the ex-employee and the organization
  9. conduct outreach to alumni of the organization
  10. ensure compliance with legal requirements especially those related to diversity and inclusion (this includes advocating for requirements that should be met, e.g. nondiscrimination policies that protect the LGBT community).
