The Company

We are working with a highly respected  global organization known for delivering cutting edge medical, healthcare and nutrition solutions. This mission driven organization continues to see tremendous demand for its services and as a result is focused on continuing to build a world class HR function to support the business. To lead this journey, it is seeking an energetic Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) to build and implement a global Human Resources strategy that reflects and enhances the overarching strategy of the organization. This role will be based in Seattle, WA.

The Role

A key member of the Executive Leadership team, the CHRO provides human capital leadership to align the organization’s strategic priorities with the necessary people capabilities. As a trusted advisor and coach to the CEO and the Executive Leadership team, the CHRO will lead significant change within the HR function. An important focus will be on creating and solidifying  process, accountabilities and operational efficiencies across the function. The CHRO will achieve this by establishing key metrics and success measures and providing leadership to the team, driving excellence, performance, and a spirit of continuous learning and improvement from the front. Specifically, this position will be responsible for the success of all areas within HR, including talent management and acquisition, total rewards, diversity, equity and inclusion, and organizational development. The CHRO will also work closely with the Total Rewards team to enhancing the organization’s C&B strategy and build operational capabilities for international mobility.
