This could be you
People are your passion. Employee engagement is your focus. You love connecting with others to create a people-focused, collaborative, and high-performance culture. You understand that values influence culture, and culture influences brand. You operate as a trusted advisor and brand ambassador.
If you are a passionate people-focused Human Resource Professional who can be both hands-on and strategic, we would love to hear from you!
Here’s what you will be doing
Reporting to the President, the Director, People & Culture will drive a people-focused and high-performance culture that emphasizes employee collaboration and engagement. This role will have the opportunity to drive our growth by aligning our culture and strategy.
You understand what it takes to be a strategic HR Professional. You work well with senior leadership teams to develop and implement a People Plan that supports Squirrel’s strategic priorities anchored by our core values. However, you are not a hands off executive. You are not afraid to dig into the tactics with your team. Your attention to detail and organizational skills are outstanding. The organization runs so much smoother with you both leading and acting as part of the team.
You will implement and oversee all aspects of Human Resource functions to 175 team members across North America (Canada and the US). We are seeking someone who will be a fantastic ambassador of the company’s brand and culture, both internally and externally.
