Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance is one of the largest orthopedic practices in the country. We are expanding and we are looking for individuals that would like to be a part of our growing Human Resources TEAM!! TOA concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system which allow our patients to live their best lives. Our practice includes all the clinical elements of a top-notch orthopedic practice, including ancillary services, revenue cycle, and all the supporting administrative functionality. 

While TOA has become one of the largest orthopedic practices in the country, we are highly focused on continuing to grow our organization. The footprint of TOA already extends throughout middle Tennessee, north to Clarksville, down to Columbia and as far east as Knoxville. 

Through organizational growth, we have an immediate opening for a Human Resources Generalist. Under the direction of the Regional Director of Human Resources, and working closely with the Recruiting Manager, the individual in this role will provide an important element of operational support in all areas of our Human Resources, but specifically in recruiting, onboarding and offboarding, benefits, reporting and overall HR administration. 


The primary responsibilities for the HR Generalist include:

  • Recruiting. Partnering with our Recruiting Manager, responsibilities will include sourcing candidates to build a pipeline of talent, screening candidates for qualification and fit, and reviewing and updating job descriptions.
  • HRIS Administration. Provide general support for the administrative elements of the HR team through the HRIS. This position will work closely with our applicant tracking system, managing the workflow of offers of employment and onboarding, offboarding, as well as coordination of our bi-weekly new employee onboarding events. 
  • Human Resources. Will provide daily support with benefits, leave management, ad-hoc reporting, administration, and other HR duties as assigned.
