VIEW JOBS 2/19/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-05-19T00:00 After completing her MBA at The University of Texas at Austin, Alissa decided to forgo a traditional post-MBA job and instead launched milk + honey spa. Not only did she see an opportunity in Austin for a luxury day spa, but it was important to her to build something that made — and continues to make — others feel great. In January 2006, she launched milk + honey, and today, it encompasses a thriving collection of six spas in Austin, Houston and Fort Worth. In 2014, she launched milk + honey’s line of hyperclean, organic, and effective bath and bodycare products — with skincare debuting in 2019.<br /> <b id="docs-internal-guid-4df7ce0e-7fff-bda1-5fe5-c1429aa251a6"> </b><br /> milk + honey's core Four Principles remain an ever-present foundational part of our processes, culture, and growth.<br /> <b id="docs-internal-guid-4df7ce0e-7fff-bda1-5fe5-c1429aa251a6"> </b><br /> <b id="docs-internal-guid-4df7ce0e-7fff-bda1-5fe5-c1429aa251a6">Care. </b>Be kind, compassionate, and listen to one another.<br /> <b id="docs-internal-guid-4df7ce0e-7fff-bda1-5fe5-c1429aa251a6">Thrive. </b>Enjoy what you do and push yourself to improve.<br /> <b id="docs-internal-guid-4df7ce0e-7fff-bda1-5fe5-c1429aa251a6">Inspire. </b>Surprise, delight, and go above and beyond.<br /> <b id="docs-internal-guid-4df7ce0e-7fff-bda1-5fe5-c1429aa251a6">Simplify. </b>Do more with less.<br /> <br /> <strong>milk + honey offers our HR Business Partner | Recruiter the following benefits:</strong> <ul dir="ltr"> <li style="padding: 0; margin: 0;" style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">Competitive compensation plan</li> <li style="padding: 0; margin: 0;" style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">Affordable health, dental and vision plans</li> <li style="padding: 0; margin: 0;" style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">Paid vacation</li> <li style="padding: 0; margin: 0;" style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">Matching 401k plan</li> <li style="padding: 0; margin: 0;" style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">Ongoing training opportunities</li> <li style="padding: 0; margin: 0;" style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">Generous discounts on treatments and products</li> </ul> Named one of Austin Business Journal's "Best Places to Work," milk + honey is deeply committed to helping you achieve your personal and professional goals.
