Why Dayco

Strategic and tactical impact
You'll help define and communicate the vision for our HR function both at corporate and globally. You'll drive efficiencies, automate and create processes and more. You'll ensure HR serves us well now and into the future. In addition, you'll make tactical contributions that will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your efforts are making a direct impact on each one of our employees. 

Ground-floor opportunity
As we've already mentioned, there's a lot of room to make your mark. One of your first initiatives will be to take an audit of what we have and what we don't--looking for holes in our processes or missing procedures. This role will be yours to shape and develop. 

Broad visibility
Of course you'll interact extensively with the HR organization, but you'll also work with people in many other functional areas. Our senior leaders will be following the progress of this important leadership role. The CHRO is committed to the success of his people and you'll serve as his key business partner as you drive initiatives. 

Professional development
This role will give you an understanding of our overall operations and definitely allow you to showcase your leadership skills and ability to continue to grow in other functional HR areas. These are characteristics we look for when opportunities arise, and we're committed to promoting from within whenever possible.

Competitive benefits package
In addition to your compensation package, we offer competitive benefits that include medical, dental and vision benefits for you and your family; life insurance; paid vacation; and a 401(k) plan with company match.

Keys to Success

To excel in this role you will be a strong HR Generalist with a wide breadth of experience and a hunger to make an impact right off the bat. This is not a role where you’ll just be going through the corporate motions, instead, you are actually going to impact the organization on a global level. Quick question for you - click here
 
You still will need to be proactive about establishing your credibility before you can drive real results; this will include relating to and building relationships with diverse personalities at all levels, and using your influencing skills to get buy-in on the changes. You'll also need managerial courage to take on potentially sensitive issues that sometimes pop-up in the HR realm. While this role has strong strategic components, it also includes blocking and tackling. Ours is a fast-paced environment and things can feel overwhelming at times. But if you are the professional we are looking for, you’ll have the ability to remain calm under pressure and stay flexible and adaptable as priorities shift and evolve.
