This involves a lot of patience, influencing, challenging and most likely pivoting on a daily basis but is rewarded by making an impact and working with the most diverse, and best, groups of people you could ever wish for. As the local face of P&C, it’ll likely require you to connect within P&C first as well as with other functions whenever necessary – identifying the right people to help you to resolve questions and issues in a timely and competent manner.
This doesn’t require holding weekly one-on-ones with every individual colleague on the site! It does require the ability to sense the environment around you, get a pulse for what’s happening with colleagues locally and react with interventions that make a real difference. These interventions could involve handling compensation and/or job changes, performance coaching, development advice, providing the right support in difficult personal cases or simply helping a colleague understand a P&C practice or pointing them in the right direction. It probably also means appreciating that every day may provide something unexpected!
This does involve reflecting on your solid base of people and culture process and theory and then putting it to good use in a clear, friendly and common sense way. You will plan, organize, communicate and deliver P&C initiatives for the site such as company orientation sessions, team building support or delivery (and maybe even design), training related to annual people cycle topics such as focal review and performance management
This bit is easy of course and feels great! Logitech has 35 years of core values which have served us well but we need at least another 35 years of growth so there’s always something to do here which could involve creating and running local engagement events, supporting Logi Cares and other community activities such as initiatives related to Diversity & Inclusion and local university relations.
This means we can rely on you to raise up employment changes which may require changes to our policies, practices or processes and then be part of the change management planning and solutions if required locally. Now when we mention compliance cases and local investigations, we know it’s not a fun topic. They may be few & far between but Logitech takes ethics and integrity very seriously and we need professionals with a cool head, professional gravitas and an understanding of what confidentiality and support means when they do come along.
Focus areas will include:
This is a new role, providing an extra focus on all people topics for a site that we have not previously had. It is also SO important to recognize that this new role is being introduced during a period of change when Logitech P&C is building self-service on P&C topics, transforming our HR Operations team focus into a global shared service and expecting P&C Site Partners to focus more support on driving organization and talent implications for their organization to execute its strategy.
Consequently, a key focus area will be on supporting and progressing these changes – utilizing the relevant roles within P&C in the right way to partner, not duplicate activities. It will also require enthusiastic change management approaches to provide in-person support on P&C topics to the site while introducing them to the other ways to get service from P&C.
As outlined in the job responsibilities, the day to day focus areas will include managing and delivering the following ad hoc and cyclical events:
Demonstrated professional and understanding of people and culture processes, policies and practises including: performance management, total rewards, talent acquisition and development, management coaching and team development.
The kind of interpersonal and communication skills that instantly establish rapport, collaboration, trust, confidence and credibility with your colleagues on site.
A track record of making a significant impact across a site by partnering effectively with local leaders and employees to develop a company culture that aligns with the business strategies and values.
Demonstrated proficiency in facilitation and coaching to run group sessions on anything from orientation, through to functional P&C information sessions and on to career and team development.
Ability to keep informed and up-to-date about Logitech business, mixed with an excitement about what Logitech is doing now and in the future.
Solid understanding of employee relations procedures and practises along with proficient interviewing/investigation skills.
Ability to contribute ideas and provide solutions to the design and implementation of P&C strategies/programs/processes – and power to see it through.
Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree or equivalent preferred, 6-8 years of progressive Business Partner experience in fast paced, high tech environment with responsibility for driving and implementing People and Culture strategies and business solutions on site.
Global/multi-country business partner experience with cross functional teams preferred
