  • You handle incoming client projects like but not limited to, employee handbooks, job descriptions, HR audits, performance management tools, compensation analysis and basically anything that comes across HR’s desk.
  • You are a resource to our clients for the gamut of HR questions they may have. You are an excellent coach and you love finding the perfect solutions for them with calm and ease.
  • You maintain knowledge of legal requirements and government reporting regulations affecting human resources functions and ensure our client’s policies, procedures, and reporting are in compliance.
  • You know NY employment law like the back of your hand.
  • You guide our clients to think “big picture” when they are hiring, interviewing each candidate not only for skill set but culture fit and value alignment. You don’t do the recruiting for them but you help along the way.
  • You help onboard new employees for our clients, walking them through the handbook, benefits and answer any questions to help them join the team with ease. You encourage our clients to have a comprehensive and friendly onboarding process past the first day.
  • You help train our client’s management/lead team in best practices and high-level strategy (everything is based on core values) in interviewing, hiring, terminations, promotions, performance review, safety, and sexual harassment prevention.
  • You advise management in the appropriate resolution of employee issues always holding the motto, “What’s the right thing to do?” by either the client or the employee. You are not always on the client’s side.
  • You respond to our client’s inquiries regarding policies, procedures, and programs.
  • You help our client’s with their performance management program always thinking at a high level first ensuring the company’s core values and business goals are always weaved into the program you help them build.
  • You’re knowledgeable about benefits and can guide our client’s through the process and add valuable input if the plans presented aren’t a good fit for them. You know the rules behind POP plans, ACA and even, yuck, COBRA.
  • If our clients have a work comp issue come up, you know what to do. You are equipped with the knowledge to guide them through the forms and process. You may even have already talked to them about it and they have everything they need.
  • And in the event they need to let someone go, you’ve got the compliance side covered because of your knowledge but also you help all parties through the process to offboard employees with dignity.
  • You love to (or would love to learn) network. Part of your role will be to help make meaningful connections in the business community around you through getting to know colleagues, referring business to them and being a trusted resource. Don't worry if you're shy...we'll guide you along the way AND if you bring in business there will be commission.
  • Finally, you’re going to change lives by teaching a workplace readiness course at a local nonprofit (you choose or we can help). And even more awesome, you will offer to coach any participant one-on-one to help them get gainful, healthy employment because you’ve got the skills to get them there.
