Plant With Purpose THRIVE 25 Strategy Statement: Inspired by the impact of our work in service to rural communities around the world, we are driven to grow our programs to help address the rising need.

On July 1, 2020 we launched into a new strategic period where we plan to grow an average of 30% per year by 2025. A critical aspect to the planned growth is the retention and development of a diverse and remote team. We are seeking out a part-time HR professional who will contribute to achieving this goal by continually improving the benefits experience of our staff and enabling Plant With Purpose to provide a fresh and progressive set of holistic benefits; and diligently ensuring that our people operations remain in compliance with federal and state laws. As a member of the People & Culture team, we are looking for a team member who approaches their work with creativity, a growth mindset, and love and care for their colleagues. This role will be a blend of strategy, systems maintenance, and continuous improvement.

You may have needed to become an at-home caretaker, or decided to go back to school, or simply needed a break from the load of a full-time role in efforts to care for your Self. As such, you might be looking for a part-time role to keep your resume fresh, stay up-to-date in the HR field, and/or need the extra income during your break from a full-time role. Whatever the reason, you might be exactly what we are looking for.
