Employee Relations Manager, PillPack

At PillPack, an independently operated subsidiary of Amazon acquired in 2018, our customers come first. PillPack is committed to building the future of pharmacy and to deliver on being the earth’s most customer centric pharmacy. To get there, we need exceptionally talented, bright, and driven people. If you are passionate about the future of healthcare this is your chance to make history by developing strategies and mechanisms to foster a positive work environment at PillPack. We are looking for an Employee Relations Manager with a demonstrated ability to collaborate with and influence field Operations managers and HR teams; to analyze multiple levels of partner feedback to identify risks and gaps; to create, audit, and sustain positive workplace relations programs; and to design and conduct positive workplace relations training that drives best practices. This role will also work reactively on crisis-oriented situations — sometimes traveling to sites at risk on little notice. Balancing time between projects and crisis-response is a critical component for success in the position.
The Team: Be a part of the PillPack HR team. You can expect all the challenges and benefits of being a new business at Amazon: wide-open space for improvement and innovation, a strong team, and a fast-paced environment. These will require a willingness to dive into the details, solve new problems as they arise, leverage high judgment and gut instinct, look around corners, and always obsess over customers. Everyone on the team wears multiple hats, and ownership of the employee experience is key.

The successful candidate will possess employee and labor relations expertise, excellent judgment, and highly-developed analytical, interpersonal, and communication skills. It is important to be comfortable both presenting to senior leaders and communicating with front-line associates and to have the ability to manage independent network-wide projects.
