Position of EHRA NF HR Consultant
EHRA Non-Faculty Human Resource Consultant (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – October 20, 2018
I use the word "typically" very carefully to describe a day's work as each and every day offers very different and challenging tasks. Such tasks include, but not limited to consultations with campus clients, processing of various personnel actions for employees, i.e. salary increases, new hire, terminations, and FTE changes. Processing the aforementioned can all occur on the same day. Having to be responsible for so many work tasks has enhanced my ability to exercise time management. This is one of the most important work philosophies that I have learned and have proven to be extremely valuable. While the work is very fast paced, and can be somewhat stressful at times, there still remains a level of eustress, whereby that stressful situation results in a positive outcome. That is the tone set my management, whereby I am allowed independence in performing daily tasks, with the expectation of following through to completion and maintaining a high level of accuracy. The hardest part of my job is having to wait on responses for approval of salary increases and position requests for employees, due to policy constraints, while one of the of the most enjoyable part is the ability to communicate with various campus staff and help them with their needs.
