Job Description:

Privately held Tulsa engineering & manufacturing company with global operations plans to add a Global Director of Human Resources (GDHR) to the top executive team. This position will be the chief HR executive, reporting to the President/CEO/Owner of the company.

The GDHR will oversee a team of approximately 10 people in Tulsa, including the U.S. HR manager who oversees several in-house recruiters, benefits administrators, and the company's receptionist. As the company's chief HR executive, the GDHR will also oversee multiple other HR professionals around the globe, and in time may also oversee the U.S.-based training coordinator.

The ideal candidate will be both a people and a hands-on "numbers/data" person, able to assume responsibility for the financial and economic aspects of benefits programs and renewals. The GDHR will have responsibility for compensation and benefits, including related financial analyses, using both their own tools and support from others in the company as needed. Compensation and benefits-related issues will be presented to and discussed with the President/Owner, who has a financial degree and is very astute in business matters.

A service mindset, oriented toward supporting internal customers, is essential. High-level professional HR training, background, and experience are important. MBA or equivalent experience is a plus. Global experience (significant interface with the HR function in at least one foreign country) strongly preferred.

GDHR needs to have good working knowledge of:

  • Compensation (salaries, incentive compensation, etc.), all with a global perspective: This includes the ability to understand, evaluate, and recommend competitive compensation (including appropriate base salary & incentives) for a wide variety of positions, sourcing and utilizing market data applicable to different regions of the U.S. as well as globally.
  • Incentive structures: Must be able to envision, detail the specifics of, write, and communicate creative approaches to incentive plans to ensure alignment of key individuals worldwide, with the company's profit and other goals and objectives. This will be a team effort with other company executives.
  • Benefits (particularly U.S. benefits): What's standard/typical, how benefits are priced, how to negotiate/shop for renewal. Especially important is an ability to evaluate new and innovative benefits strategies to determine whether there is real value for the company and its employees, including an understanding of the potential risks of implementation, all the while being mindful of the dual objectives of lowering cost and maintaining/improving benefit value to employees. (Benefits are also important outside the U.S., but less so, since many/most benefits are government provided.)
  • Talent inventory: Must envision, and gather data to create, a global inventory of human talent within the company's worldwide employee group, ensuring that we can effectively locate, deploy, and develop the most appropriate expert/experienced resources to address specific technical and other issues.
  • Presentation: Grasp of how to present all U.S. and global HR-related financial and other information, to make it intuitive and easy for company management to understand and process for reference and in decision-making.
