Reporting to the Chief People Officer (CPO), you will provide leadership and direction to 25+ people divided into five teams, namely the Compensation Department, the Commissions Department, the HRIS Department, and the Benefits and Wellness Department.
We are in the process of developing stronger comp programs at all levels, but we are always reviewing, refining, and updating them to remain relevant and appropriate in a highly dynamic industry. For example, we have five executive compensation meetings annually. Your internal clients will include the entire C-suite, General Counsel, the Chair of the Board's Compensation Committee, a Compensation Consultant, and leaders of Sales and other departments. You will also interact with external partners, such as systems vendors and comp survey providers. The CPO reports to the Compensation Committee, so you will act as their right hand in this regard.
While you will be involved in both strategy and tactics on the compensation side, regarding benefits you will take a more high-level approach. We outsource most benefits administration, leaving you free to focus on strategy. This is where you can showcase your creativity: our benefits plan must be one that differentiates us from other healthcare staffing firms so that we can ensure a pool of exceptional clinicians.
More specifically, your main responsibilities will cover the following areas:
If you are a strong “hands on” low ego style Senior Compensation & Benefits leader with tenacity and a background in both sales incentives and preparing presentations for public company boards of directors, this could be a superb opportunity to move up and broaden your sphere of influence. If you have experience interacting directly with board members, then that is even better!
To be a strong fit, we are looking for:
Just as important as your experience and skills will be the following characteristics and competencies:
You should also be willing and able to travel approximately 10-20% percent of the time.
Along with having relevant leadership experience, solid understanding, and proficiency in Total Rewards, you should have the demeanor, competencies and behaviors that will quickly result in you gaining the confidence and respect of all team members. Without ego, you will participate as a trusted member of the HR leadership team. You will have the maturity to manage sophisticated and confidential matters, and the constitution to handle pressure and unpredictability in a focused environment.
The characteristic that best describes those who excel in our environment is a combination of professionalism and grit. With our pace, balance is imperative as too much structure slows us down. We do our due diligence with research and analysis, but the emphasis is on results, not process. This pace, however, is no excuse for anything less than top quality work. The spreadsheets you submit to the Chair of the Board's Compensation Committee, for example, must be clear, focused, and error-free.
The stakes and pressure will be high, so bring your "A" game every day (and sometimes on weekends and holidays). You should be articulate and keep your expertise honed so that you can answer questions "on the fly." You will know you're succeeding when you are gaining consensus from senior leadership on your ideas and approaches.
Everyone at AMN takes a hands-on approach and remains willing to wear multiple hats, including those in senior leadership. You'll need to enjoy the challenge of keeping many balls in the air, and experience in deciding on what to focus on, what to let go, what to save for later, and what to hand off. You will enjoy finding ways to do more than you thought possible, with less than you thought credible.
