Our Team 

We are Global People Services (GPS), an integral vehicle of Human Resources delivering a first-class experience to the enterprise.  GPS HR Specialists are the vital consultants for employees and business leaders when they have any questions or concerns about HR-related programs, policies or procedures.  The global team facilitates critical employee life-cycle transactions in a seamless way.  From on-boarding new hires into the company, to coordinating global mobility and working closely with external vendors, our aim is simple: to provide a seamless, platinum level of support to our colleagues and businesses.

Your colleagues all know you as the problem-solver: the person they go to when they need advice. You work well under pressure, and you thrive in a team environment.

You will be required to act with discretion when handling sensitive information and be expected to balance inquiries coming in through our ticketing system, phone lines and providing in person consultation for our more complex, high-touch processes. You will be counted on to provide support to employees navigating the many events related to the employee lifecycle while maintaining an excellent level of customer support and collaborating with your HR colleagues in the centers of excellence. Additionally, you will be responsible for identifying trends in employee inquiries and working with our operations team to document changes and provide suggestions for process improvement.
