What You'll Do

  • Create an environment of positive employee relations by maintaining confidentiality, establishing trust and credibility among cross-functional partners, being seen by employees and leaders as approachable and fair, and balancing business needs with employee needs

  • Establish best practices and frameworks for investigations, performance management conversations, in partnership with our Employment Legal team
  • Improve, socialize and rollout processes, approaches, guidelines, practices and operating procedures related to employee relations
  • Develop and maintain a case management system, produce dashboards and use data to identify employee relations trends

What We Look For

  • 8+ years in People related roles with 5+ years experience in employee relations leading complex workplace investigations involving equal employment opportunity laws (e.g., Title VII, FMLA, ADA, ADEA)
  • Prior experience partnering with employment legal counsel is required 
  • Specialized training in labor/employee relations (like the Association of Workplace Investigators) a plus, but not required 
  • Prior international experience a plus, but not required
  • Excellent communication skills in interviewing, presenting to senior staff, and writing
  • Exhibits superior judgment in conducting investigations and assessing outcomes
  • Maintains confidentiality and privacy and conducts investigations with the utmost integrity
  • Ability to work autonomously and collaboratively, and prioritize workload/cases effectively
  • Proven track record of positively influencing leaders, teams and cross-functional stakeholders
  • Deep understanding of equal employment opportunity laws, and other employment-related state laws, particularly in California, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, and Utah 
  • Open to travel as needed (some occasional travel may be required)
