The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the regional planning and intergovernmental coordination agency that focuses on issues critical to the region’s success, including growth and development, transportation, water resources, services for older adults and workforce solutions. ARC is dedicated to unifying the region’s collective resources to prepare the metropolitan area for a prosperous future. This is done through professional planning initiatives, the provision of objective information and the involvement of the community in collaborative partnerships.
The Talent Management Group is one of five functions housed within the Center for Strategic Operations and Administration, providing oversight and strategy for the agency’s critical business infrastructure, which also includes financial services, information technology, legal, and general services. The Talent Management Group supports approximately 200 employees in the execution and administration of a full range of talent management programs and initiatives, including talent acquisition, compensation and classification, benefits, pension administration, performance management, leadership and professional development, policy development, HRIS/Analytics, risk management, employment law compliance, and employee relations.
While the agency’s workforce is small in comparison, the complex work, diversified and cutting-edge skillset required to address the complex regional issues around transportation, natural resources, workforce development, and senior services for one of the fastest growing older adult populations in the country requires a unique Human Resources/Talent Management professional.
The Human Resources/Talent Management Generalist, Principal, will be responsible for aligning the talent management strategy with agency initiatives and work as a strategic partner supporting the agency’s mission through innovative and systematic approaches, process improvement, resource leveraging and integration, collaboration, open communication, and effective solutions.
