Human resources and staff managmeent at a mid-sized non-profit mental health agency
Pros: clean mission
Cons: limited resources
As one of 3 members of the HR department, a typical day was never typical. This role, in an agency this size, requires use of a wide range of skills, from employee relations, benefits administration, consultation to management, process creation and evaluation to contract management and management of the health and safety program. Management and staff are skilled and passionate about the agency's mission, but multiple locations, shifts, the presence of a labor union, and limited resources made communications challenging.
