Reporter, HR Brew

New York, NY
Professional /
Full-time /
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.
