JOBS & Internships

    Employee Relations Specialist - Saif

    A strong theater production can leave an audience in awe, feeling as if they are part of the story and know the characters on a personal level. Actors are often credited with connecting the audience to the production, but without a stage manager behind the curtain, the show would crumble.

    Employee relations specialists are SAIF’s stage managers. As part of SAIF’s proactive and preventative employee relations philosophy, they provide early support to employees instead of waiting for problems to arise. They are humane, astute, unbiased, and diplomatic when having difficult performance conversations and investigating issues.

    Much like stage managers, our employee relations specialists know the show must go on, even when there are challenges backstage. SAIF employees must continue to serve customers and strive toward our mission even when relationships are strained. As our new employee relations specialist, you’ll need exceptional listening and interview skills, thoroughness, and organization to ensure our audience—that is, our customers—is not distracted by mishaps behind the curtain.

    There is usually no standing ovation for the stage manager that silently ensures even the most minute needs of a cast member are met. Our employee relations specialists receive little glory for the crucial role they play at SAIF. But your reward for a job well done is a stronger, more productive workplace, and helping employees perform and connect with customers in a way that leaves them both satisfied and wanting more.
