You're invited to come and help chart our success.

The campus is invited to participate in candidate forums for the Employee & Labor Relations Senior Manager (ELR) position within Staff Human Resources.

The ELR Senior Manager provides the vision and direction of the entire employee and labor relations team and will be a key stakeholder in the future of the ELR organization as a whole.
