Position Overview

The Human Resources Director will provide overall human resources support for the organization’s five Manhattan-based divisions. This position operates as a business partner by providing comprehensive human resources support to the leadership and staff of each division. S/he is responsible for staffing, benefits, pay practices, employee relations, conflict resolution, training and development, and regulatory compliance.

The organization has been operating without a corporate Human Resources Director since January 2010. As a result, there is neither a dedicated individual nor group providing oversight and guidance on best practices in such personnel matters as recruitment, hiring, retention, training, performance review, medical and other benefits, conflict resolution, and employee manuals. Over the past several years, this void has been filled in part by other executives and staff. As such, the Human Resources Director will serve as a resource to Corporate and the individual divisions on policies, issues and the implementation of best practices.
