  • Provide timely and thought partnership, anchored in data and insights, regarding the volume and categorization of consultative HR queries to HRBPs and other internal people teams to influence people strategy and initiatives
  • Operationalize a portfolio of regional and global projects such as acquisitions or internalization of employees; be the voice of HR processes and provide mentorship on how to navigate the associated systems and procedures
  • Respond to advanced employee concerns, be available for consultations with employees, and help drive the team to procedural solutions wherever possible
  • Improve existing processes and lead projects on the development of new processes to keep the People Support Team scale with Uber's growth
  • Partner with ER, Legal, Payroll and other functional teams to ensure a comprehensive, holistic, employee-centric, and legally compliant approach to HR processes
