HR Generalist.
Seattle, WA

TEAGUE’s Human Resources Generalist collaborates to foster and develop a culture that ensures we align the right people with the right opportunities, energizes and develops our talent to do their best work, and provides effective consultation and delivery of strategic people solutions that enable successful business outcomes.

 

Why We Need This Position

We want TEAGUE to be famous for its products, of course, but we also want it to be known as a fabulous place to work. It’s HR’s job to ensure that TEAGUE employees are successfully oriented, trained, integrated, engaged and supported so they can do their best work. In short, we want TEAGUE employees to be happy to come to work each day. That’s where you come in.

 

Who We’re Looking For

A personable, upbeat and diplomatic individual with great communication skills, a no-detail-is-too-small approach to organization, and solution-oriented mindset. First and foremost, you believe that building genuine, trusted relationships is the foundation for a productive and happy work place. Whether you are working with the other studios or within HR, you are a collaborative and pro-active team member with a clear voice and point of view.  You are a natural diplomat when it comes to helping to resolve complex employee relations issues, and are able to provide coaching and guidance to foster effective working relationships. Second, you know that success is the result of proper training, setting clear expectations, and delivering honest, constructive feedback. You are prepared to participate in firm-wide and studio-based initiatives such as performance management, succession planning, talent review and development, salary review, resource planning, business planning, and goal-setting. Third, you enjoy the prospect of onboarding new employees and providing them with a proper introduction to TEAGUE. Fourth, you have a good grasp of the legal requirements, logistics and administrative details of HR. You’re knowledgeable about local, state and federal employment law changes, filings and proceedings and prepared to provide HR policy guidance to the Global Design Studio managers and HR staff. You’re unfazed by the more technical aspects of the job, such as ensuring compliance with required legal postings; processing candidate background checks; and completing and verifying all employee documents. Finally, you are a model of discretion, integrity, and credibility, able to frame issues clearly and express your point of view with proper tone and good judgment. If you thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced environment and like the prospect of supporting a positive, smooth-running workplace, we’d love to talk to you.
