Job Description

Job description:
The HR Advisory function is the most significant driver of overall functional HR effectiveness by driving improvement in key talent and business unit outcomes. An effective HR–line partnership increases associate performance and retention, as well as has a significant impact on business unit revenue and profitability. The HR Advisory positions consist of four different roles that include distinct activities: strategic partner, associate mediator, operations manager and emergency responder. The Strategic Partner crafts and implements enterprise-wide strategies to address chronic challenges while the Associate Mediator creates sustained solutions to individual associate challenges. The Operations Manager measures and monitors existing policies and procedures and the Emergency Responder provides immediate fixes to acute emergencies.

The Senior HR Advisor is most directly linked to HR’s effectiveness at supporting line management and as such executes three critical behaviors that drive strategic effectiveness: generates HR–business insight, influences line behaviors and maintains accountability for outcomes. The Senior HR Advisor fully understands the strategy of their line clients as well as the implications of that strategy on their clients’ business operations. As HR’s liaison to the business, the Senior HR Advisor works closely with business unit leaders to incorporate business priorities into the central HR agenda. Conversely, s/he acts as a partner to the line by ensuring HR strategy and high-value HR processes are implemented successfully at the business-unit level and are aligned to overall corporate strategy. As a strategic partner, the Senior HR Advisor works closely with his/her internal client group(s) to provide professional HR guidance and support to implement initiatives related to attracting, developing and retaining a talented and committed workforce. S/He holds overall accountability for ensuring that business and people plans are integrated across the business unit and that HR programs/projects are delivered to support this. The focus of this role is on higher-level strategy setting and execution activities rather than transactional activities. S/He leverages business and human capital data to generate HR insights with business relevance and identifies best practice solutions, with tools and resources, to the most common, highest-impact talent management challenges. The Senior HR Advisor–line communications are focused on delivering clear, relevant information that articulates HR’s diagnosis of a problem and the appropriate next steps. S/He stewards HR resources and expertise from HR’s centers of excellence toward areas of greatest business need.
