What is People Operations?

Today, many businesses are moving toward the term “People Operations,” as this function is viewed as an equal partner across business lines. Truly, an organization’s employee workforce requires the same strategic approach and vision as its other core business functions. So, whereas People Operations functions are more narrowed in scope, People Operations is more strategic and data-driven, placing purposeful focus on people and culture, and working to build a sense of community among colleagues. At Devereux, our goal is to serve as a valued and trusted strategic partner, helping centers/departments make the best possible people-based decisions that will benefit employees, the individuals we serve and the overall organization.
