A Note from PathPoint’s Current Head of Human Resources:

Thank you for your interest in this important position at PathPoint. As I prepare for my retirement this year, here are 6 key thoughts I want to share about working at PathPoint.

1. PathPoint’s 400+ employees support over 2,400 people with disabilities and mental health diagnoses in living the lives of their choosing. If you were to choose PathPoint, you would never struggle to find meaning and purpose in what we do for our communities and how your role fits into our mission.

2. You would report to a highly rated CEO whose capacity, intelligence, industry influence, humbleness, and kindness are off the charts; work with a talented, fun, and dedicated team of HR professionals; and be part of a senior leadership and management team who are the most collaborative, creative, and engaged experts I’ve seen in my 30+ year career in human resources.

3. We offer comprehensive benefits including paid time off (vacation, wellness, holidays, and sick); medical with an HRA, dental, and vision; a wellness program, and a matching 403(b) retirement plan, among many others.

4. We are a nonprofit that receives its funding from the state and federal governments. We are as generous as possible with our pay ranges based on that funding and our long-held strategy to remain sustainable, which we successfully have done since 1964. We realize the importance of compensation; therefore, we ask all candidates to think carefully about all that we offer to make sure we are a great fit for you.

5. I plan to be available to support the new VP as needed after I hand over the reins.

6. If you are a successful, strategic HR leader with high capacity, a passion for serving others, and you live in one of our service areas, please apply.

Thank you.
