As a part of its creation DHR has focused its expansive work into three divisions:
Career & Culture Division - focused on employee engagement and development
HR Service Delivery Division – focused on compensation, classification, talent acquisition and contracted services
Employee Health & Safety – focused on safety, claims, and benefits
DHR is seeking well-qualified candidates with senior-level of experience within these specialties to lead the work of the divisions.
