Human Resources professionals have in recent years found themselves thrust into the eye of a hurricane, as the global pandemic and broader societal changes shake up the workplace. As organizations continue to address sensitive issues including pay disparity, DE&I, remote work, and the lingering impact of the pandemic, the HR department has been forced to quickly adapt and take on even greater responsibilities, by learning new skills, figuring out new software, and understanding how to communicate both top-down and bottom-up.
It’s impossible to overstate HR’s heightened prominence in the midst of all this turbulence. Questions such as “How do we create a hybrid work model that works for everyone” and “How do we create an inclusive workplace” might not have been asked ten years ago, but are very much centered in the dialogue today. And those are just two of hundreds of issues that continue to demand HR’s attention.
We’re looking for a curious and experienced reporter to ideate, research, and create journalism that explores the Human Resources profession through a B2B lens for our growing audience of HR professionals.
HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL BE WORKING ON
- Pitch, report, and write stories and other associated journalistic endeavors for HR Brew — via newsletter, on-site articles, and other venues of distribution
- Generate ideas for and lead/co-lead creation of non-newsletter editorial initiatives, enterprise pieces, and evergreen content, as we build out a digital home
- Conduct research to support creation of key stories and inform longer-term projects
- 5+ years of reporting experience

- Ability to write in the Morning Brew style (engaging, informative, clever)

- Self-starter attitude with ability to operate in a collaborative, quickly-changing environment
- Combination of attention to detail and creative, strategic thinking
- Excellent communication skills with a mindset for collaboration
- Ability to operate in a high-pressure environment with tight deadlines

WHAT ELSE ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Character and integrity rank pretty high on the list. Our team is guided by our core values:
HOW WE TREAT EACH OTHER
• Respectful Candor: We believe that engaging in timely, constructive, and open discourse is an act of respect that makes for a more transparent and productive work environment.
• Empathy: We establish a strong partnership of trust with our co-workers and partners. We build human connections in order to understand each other.
• Inclusivity: We strive to celebrate and welcome people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Differing perspectives help us make better decisions and have more fulfilling experiences.
HOW WE TREAT OUR WORK
• Curiosity: We learn every day through deliberate inquiry and exploration. We re-examine assumptions to be a better company, offer better products, and become better colleagues.
• Accountability: We celebrate our successes and own our failures. Taking responsibility for our actions allows us to learn from our experiences.
• Bias Toward Action: We know speed matters in business so we embrace quick and calculated risk-taking. We understand that many actions are reversible and therefore we are solutions-oriented, even when facing obstacles and challenges.
• Challenger Mentality: We don’t allow ourselves to be comfortable with our success. We are hungry to become the best and create more value for our audience.
• Clarity of Purpose: We understand the “why" in our work, which helps us to operate at our highest level of performance and efficiency.
