HR Liaisons

HR Liaisons serve as a communication link between Human Resources and SF State's departments and play an integral role in the coordination of human resources activities (i.e. benefit enrollment, performance management, leave reporting, etc.) for employees in their departments. As partners of the Human Resources Department, HR Liaisons play a key role — from creating a welcoming environment for new hires to maintaining workplace unity while supporting employees and management. Excellent oral and written communication is critical and essential for this role. The employee must not have any disciplinary actions and have a meets expectation on their performance management plan.

Meet with liaisons on a quarterly basis throughout the year, as well as impromptu sessions when the need arises.

Department heads and Supervisors support the HR Liaison as they disseminate information in a timely manner.  They also allow HR Liaison to attend training, meetings, and informational sessions.
