A search is underway for a new Human Resources director for Kamehameha Schools, led by a volunteer search committee and assisted by Bishop & Company of Honolulu.
“We are committed to finding an individual to lead a team of mission driven Human Resource professionals with the passion and commitment to find, develop and keep the best of people at Kamehameha Schools. Our mission demands it,” said Sylvia Hussey, Kamehameha’s vice president for Administration.
“The Human Resource Director must provide inspired leadership, excellence and innovation to our recruitment, retention, performance and compensation and our workforce development strategies, all within the priorities of our Founder, Bernice Pauahi Bishop held dear: her people, her culture and her spirituality.”
Bishop & Company will conduct a local and national search for an individual who has demonstrated leadership skills, significant human resources experience, and the capabilities to develop and implement strategic plans to support KS’ mission and culture.
