The Job Description provided here blends descriptions for the role as it is today as well as the role as it will be in the future. Via Christi has recently become fully sponsored by Ascension Health, triggering a process of integration of services. Traditionally, the role has involved such responsibilities as oversight of benefit plan design; creation and validation of compensation structures; building of an organizational development strategy; internal integration of the talent acquisition process; and implementation and building out of HRIS. Future state of this role includes managing service level agreements with Ascension Health, blending services provided by Ascension with services at the local Ministry-level. This includes communicating direction and strategy within Via Christi, and defining how strategy driven from Ascension Health supports the work being done within Via Christi. Integration with Ascension Health will be a multi-year process and this role requires the ability to function in the traditional CHRO role, in the future fully-integrated CHRO role, and in the process between these two points.
