A typical day at work involves multitasking, precision, a large knowledge base, and the ability to work in a multi-dynamic, fast paced working environment.
I work with coworkers who are equally passionate about the values HRK possesses---essentially we are a third party administrator serving as an extension of other companies. We specialize in payroll, benefit management, benefit brokering, and HR advisement.
I have learned a lot about HR and benefits both at HRK and at Mercer. I find this knowledge useful in a political climate that warrants change as our government interprets health insurance-- especially employer-sponsored health insurance--- in different and meaningful ways.
The hardest part of my job is maintaining the highest level of "concierge service" as possible when deadlines and busy days make this a fairly considerable challenge. I always address a challenge like this by focusing on prioritization and taking things one task at a time.
Truly, my only wish is that I could do more; frankly, I'd love to serve a role that includes my knowledge base but allows me to work with people more directly, rather than remotely via a keyboard.
I want to make a difference to a company in such a way that, as HRK asserts, allows that company to focus on their bottom lines rather than ancillary issues like Human Resources or benefits.
