Human Resource SERVICES
The ministry of the Human Resource Services Department is to assist the employees of the Carolina Conference and its local churches and schools in performing their ministries. We do this by onboarding and providing our employees with the information and resources they need to serve in the capacities for which they have been employed.
Providing Resources and Support
Human Resources facilitates all aspects of employee moving, transfers and onboarding processes at the direction of the Conference hiring committees, and does the same for local churches and schools. In addition, the department maintains all employee benefits, updates NAD employee service records, and assists employees with the retirement process at the end of their working careers. After several years of dedicated hard work by its staff, the HR Department is now providing the majority of its employee services online, allowing the department to become almost paperless. In the past year the HR Department performed the first employee evaluations of officers, directors, and associates.
Human Resources is also responsible for the background screening of volunteers and employees under the guidelines of the NAD policies and selected providers. Updates are made to the eAdventist membership database to provide pastors and teachers with the eligibility dates of all volunteers working with children. The department also provides policies and procedures to other Conference departments, churches, and schools for complying with federal and state laws on various topics, including employment laws and mandatory reporting.
Striving to empower our employees to accomplish the mission and ministries of the Carolina Conference is paramount. Knowing that God gives each of us unique talents, perspectives and ministry opportunities is what gives us the desire to assist each employee in reaching their God-given potential.
