Site HR Business Partner

People & Culture Newark, California


Position at Logitech

Are you a people-focused and proactive human resources professional who is driven to make an impact, develop talent and nurture the culture within a company? If so, do you also want to do that hands-on, in people-first environment that values flexibility and practical action instead of just turning out what’s usually expected from the HR rule book?

If you are, we are looking for an extraordinary P&C Partner to join our People and Culture (P&C) team and be part of our company’s growth. This role is the pulse of P&C locally for our multi-functional global/local Silicon Valley campus in Newark, California while occasionally looking after other satellite sites.  


  • Working as part of the cross-functional site Leadership team SVC to drive forward people and culture topics in support of Logitech’s strategy.

This involves a lot of patience, influencing, challenging and most likely pivoting on a daily basis but is rewarded by making an impact and working with the most diverse, and best, groups of people you could ever wish for. As the local face of P&C, it’ll likely require you to connect within P&C first as well as with other functions whenever necessary – identifying the right people to help you to resolve questions and issues in a timely and competent manner. 

  • Supporting all colleagues on the site with people & culture matters that require a real human touch more than an in-depth understanding of any one organization’s strategic goals.

This doesn’t require holding weekly one-on-ones with every individual colleague on the site! It does require the ability to sense the environment around you, get a pulse for what’s happening with colleagues locally and react with interventions that make a real difference. These interventions could involve handling compensation and/or job changes, performance coaching, development advice, providing the right support in difficult personal cases or simply helping a colleague understand a P&C practice or pointing them in the right direction. It probably also means appreciating that every day may provide something unexpected!

  • Planning and organizing (in conjunction with P&C Centers of Expertise, P&C Business Partners for various Logitech organizations), communicating and delivering P&C initiatives for the sites locally. 

This does involve reflecting on your solid base of people and culture process and theory and then putting it to good use in a clear, friendly and common sense way. You will plan, organize, communicate and deliver P&C initiatives for the site such as company orientation sessions, team building support or delivery (and maybe even design), training related to annual people cycle topics such as focal review and performance management

  • Acting as change agent to drive cultural change and keep our values real across the company and connected to the local communities.  

This bit is easy of course and feels great! Logitech has 35 years of core values which have served us well but we need at least another 35 years of growth so there’s always something to do here which could involve creating and running local engagement events, supporting Logi Cares and other community activities such as initiatives related to Diversity & Inclusion and local university relations.

  • Owning Employment & Employee Relations on site: Proactively following changes in relevant country/local employment laws and involving/ raising them to the appropriate party within P&C for consideration and implementation. Managing compliance cases & investigations locally if they arise.

This means we can rely on you to raise up employment changes which may require changes to our policies, practices or processes and then be part of the change management planning and solutions if required locally. Now when we mention compliance cases and local investigations, we know it’s not a fun topic. They may be few & far between but Logitech takes ethics and integrity very seriously and we need professionals with a cool head, professional gravitas and an understanding of what confidentiality and support means when they do come along.

Focus areas will include:

This is a new role, providing an extra focus on all people topics for a site that we have not previously had. It is also SO important to recognize that this new role is being introduced during a period of change when Logitech P&C is building self-service on P&C topics, transforming our HR Operations team focus into a global shared service and expecting P&C Site Partners to focus more support on driving organization and talent implications for their organization to execute its strategy.

Consequently, a key focus area will be on supporting and progressing these changes – utilizing the relevant roles within P&C in the right way to partner, not duplicate activities. It will also require enthusiastic change management approaches to provide in-person support on P&C topics to the site while introducing them to the other ways to get service from P&C.

As outlined in the job responsibilities, the day to day focus areas will include managing and delivering the following ad hoc and cyclical events:

  • Onboarding/delivering company orientation on site. Offboarding/termination
  • Interviewing for culture fit as required
  • Performance coaching (building plans with manager & executing), advising on leadership coaching options/supporting reflections & actions on 360s
  • Team building support, design, delivery
  • Site development/engagement initiatives and local community events (universities - with regional TA as required, Logitech Cares local events as part of Logi Cares team, site engagement as part of the site leadership team)
  • Investigations and compliance cases based on compliance practices & local law


Demonstrated professional and understanding of people and culture processes, policies and practises including: performance management, total rewards, talent acquisition and development, management coaching and team development.

The kind of interpersonal and communication skills that instantly establish rapport, collaboration, trust, confidence and credibility with your colleagues on site.

A track record of making a significant impact across a site by partnering effectively with local leaders and employees to develop a company culture that aligns with the business strategies and values.

Demonstrated proficiency in facilitation and coaching to run group sessions on anything from orientation, through to functional P&C information sessions and on to career and team development.

Ability to keep informed and up-to-date about Logitech business, mixed with an excitement about what Logitech is doing now and in the future.

Solid understanding of employee relations procedures and practises along with proficient interviewing/investigation skills.

Ability to contribute ideas and provide solutions to the design and implementation of P&C strategies/programs/processes – and power to see it through.

Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree or equivalent preferred, 6-8 years of progressive Business Partner experience in fast paced, high tech environment with responsibility for driving and implementing People and Culture strategies and business solutions on site.

Global/multi-country business partner experience with cross functional teams preferred

Logitech is the sweet spot for people who are passionate about products, making a mark, and having fun doing it. As a company, we’re small and flexible enough for every person to take initiative and make things happen. But we’re big enough in our portfolio, and reach, for those actions to have a global impact. That’s a pretty sweet spot to be in and we’re always striving to keep it that way.
