I have SharePoint Online and I have custom list for employee profile information.

I need to create workflow to send me/or HR Dept e-mail reminder before employee birthday by (x) days. How can this be done?

Try to customize this workflow to send a email to HR manager, not to a person as in the below link. Follow this source around implementing my workflow.

Another dead simple approach could be to do a people search for people:birthday - xdays, and set an alert for that query
