Hire With Ease - South Jordan, UT

The new HR Specialist will work closely within the Human Resources team providing HR services to small and medium sized businesses in a wide variety of industries and in several states.

That means customer service and the ability to tailor solutions to solve client problems is just as important as knowledge of HR laws and practices.
