  • Recruitment

  • Onboarding
    • Work with new employees through onboarding process including scheduling onboarding activities and meetings, ensuring paperwork is complete and all necessary information is entered into the system. Work with managers to ensure new hire trainings are scheduled and the onboarding process is smooth and productive
    • Coordinate new hire breakfasts
  • Termination
    • Prepare termination paperwork; work with managers to ensure adequate termination information is prepared. Assist with termination meetings and off-boarding activities
  • Engagement   (We may need some assistance with any activities planned related to engagement.  VP of HR would probably handle the performance review and PIP-related matters –but can train.)

    • Coordinate employee engagement activities including lunches, activities, and communication meetings
    • Assist with performance review process including coordination of development plans and performance improvement plans

  • Employee Relations   (This resource may be the first point of contact and will work with the VP of HR on these things.)
    • Assist with employee relations issues and investigations; be available for employee discussions when needed and prepare documentation from discussions


KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND ABILITIES REQUIRED:    (This is more of an entry level role –or for someone with a few years of experience –or even possibly more experience –but they like working in a manufacturing environment.

  • Ability to balance needs of the business with desires of the employees
  • Excellent organizational and communication skills (both verbal and written) required
  • Ability to prioritize and manage multiple projects simultaneously
  • HR knowledge and willingness to stay current on HR legal and compliance issues
