The SEIU 775 Benefits Group is a family of employee benefit plans negotiated and sponsored by SEIU 775, the labor union for long-term care workers in Washington State & Montana. We are leading the transformation of home care into a thriving career and helping to prevent the coming care crisis. With 10,000 people turning 65 every day in the U.S., there are not enough qualified, trained workers to care for the exponential rise in older adults needing care. Through groundbreaking initiatives, the SEIU 775 Benefits Group, together with its union and employer partners, are ensuring that Washington state home care workers have access to the skills and support they need to stay and grow in the field.
Reporting to the Director of Human Resources & Administration, this role will be responsible for the development and execution of HR strategies and initiatives, as well as the day to day generalist responsibilities. This role will help management and leadership make decisions due to data-driven recommendations that improve performance, retention and the employee experience. This role will also work closely with other HR resources and teams to drive key initiatives and projects in areas such as such as organization design, diversity, leadership development, and talent management. If you want to make a difference in the lives of home care aides and the people they support, we want to hear from you!
